The City of Vincennes, in conjunction with Republic Services, is once again offering residents of Vincennes an opportunity to dispose of large, unwanted items at no charge.  Vincennes Mayor, Joe Yochum has announced TWO special “City-Wide Large Item Disposal Days”.   On Saturday, June 4th  and Saturday, June 11th, citizens of Vincennes may take their large, unwanted items to Republic Services at 2706 North Second Street.

From 8 until 11:30 a.m. on both Saturdays, Republic Services will accept items too large to place in trash bags at their Second Street location for FREE disposal.  Items that may be delivered to Republic Services include household furniture, mattresses, large toys, carpeting tied in three (3) foot bundles, and appliances not containing chlorofluorocarbons (CFSs) and hydrofluorocarbons (HCFCs) such as refrigerators and air conditioners.

Those items the City and Republic Services will not be able to accept include construction debris, building materials, tires, paint, liquid waste, electronics or hazardous waste.  Other items that also may not be taken to Republic Services are tires, Freon-containing or appliances that have contained Freon, batteries, free liquids including paint cans, oil jugs, chemical jugs, materials containing asbestos or E-waste.  Paint cans may be accepted if they have become solid waste.
