Do you have large items you need to get rid of? Now’s your chance!
Tomorrow will mark the first of two City-Wide Large Item Disposal Days in Vincennes. The city, in conjunction with Republic Services, will offer Vincennes residents the opportunity to get rid of large, unwanted items at no charge.
From 8:00 to 11:30 a.m., citizens can bring their items too large to fit in a regular trash bag to Republic Services, located at 2706 North Second Street. Republic take those items, free of charge, and dispose of them. Acceptable items include furniture, mattresses, large toys, carpeting tied in three foot bundles, and appliances not containing chlorofluorocarbons and hydrofluorocarbons, such as refrigerators and air conditioners.
Items that will not be taken include construction debris, building materials, tires, paint, liquid waste, electronics or hazardous waste, appliances that have or still contain 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.
