(Lawrenceburg, Ind.) - Meet your new recycling cans! No more sorting, bending, or lifting – the new 95-gallon green recycling cans will have two wheels for easy maneuvering and a lid to keep things tidy. The extra space will make recycling easier and provide more room for storage.

Eligible households within the City of Lawrenceburg, Indiana that are six units or less may receive a free 95-gallon recycling can per unit. The Lawrenceburg Civil City Garage will begin delivery of the new green recycling cans to residential homes starting August 25. All residents should have their new can by September 2. Recycling Cans are assigned to a specific address. An information packet with a Welcome Letter, Acceptable Recycling Items & Information Sheet along with a FAQ's list is included with each new recycling can at delivery.

Effective September 6, citywide trash and recycling collection services will occur once a week. 


  • If your garbage was collected on Monday & Thursday, the new trash collection date will be Tuesday.


  • If your garbage was collected on Tuesday and Friday, the new trash collection date will be Wednesday.



Recycling Bags are now available for City of Lawrenceburg condo/apartment residents to participate in recycling.
