Seymour collecting extra trash to make city shine

This week is the time to Make Seymour Shine.

The city’s department of public works will be collecting extra trash items from households and small businesses this week. You will need to put the extra items out with your regular trash by 7 a.m. in the morning on your normal trash day.

You should separate trash, metal and yard waste. Landscaping, wood debris, drywall and remodeling remnants should be separated from yard waste. You can get rid of latex paint but it must be dried with cat litter, saw dust or oil dry. No oil based paints or spray paint will be accepted curbside. You can put out up to four used vehicle tires, but no semi or agricultural tires.

If you have household hazardous waste such as pesticides, fuel, cleaners or oil-based paints you can bring those to Department of Public Works.

There will be a $20 fee for each television, computer monitor and laptop.

If you have a vehicle, you can call to have it towed away at 812-524-1100 but you must have the title.
