Heavy trash pickup day in Batesville set for Saturday

(Batesville, IN) – The second heavy trash collection day of the year in the City of Batesville takes place this Saturday (May 6).

Residents are reminded to place items on the curb Friday night to ensure they are picked up by Rumpke, which begins collecting at 5 am sharp.

It’s also recommended that you wrap mattresses and couches in plastic, which prevents moisture buildup.

Mattresses and couches that are not wrapped in plastic will not be picked up.

Visit the city’s website for a list of items that will and will not be accepted.

After Saturday, the two remaining heavy trash pickup dates this year are August 5 and November 4.
