City Solid Waste/ Sewer Services
The City of Edwardsville, through KC Disposal, provides trash and recycling pickup for residential users. If you are a new resident to Edwardsville or will be moving out of Edwardsville, please contact City Hall to discuss / update your account information. Septic users will not be set up for sewer service.
City solid waste and sewer bills are sent out every-other-month. Bills are delivered via standard mail at the end of every even-numbered month and are due by the 15th of every odd-numbered month. Past due bills are eligible to be sent to third-party collection agencies.
Current Trash Pickup
The scheduled day for trash and recycling pickup is Tuesday. Items must be placed at the curb by 7 a.m. We encourage you to leave containers on the curb the night before if possible to ensure pickup. Trash should be placed in the larger 95-gallon container and recycling in the smaller 65-gallon container.
All materials must be contained within the appropriate container. Trash must also be inside a trash bag and not loose inside the trash container. Acceptable recycling items can be found HERE.
Large Item Pickup
If you have large items you need to contact KC Disposal for special pickup. This service is not part of the service provided by the City of Edwardsville.
The City conducts a City-Wide Clean Up event on the third Saturday in May. This event involves several 40-yard containers stationed at City Hall for residents to deposit large or bulky items with the assistance of City staff volunteers. Additionally, a curbside bulky-item pickup is also held the second week of November.
Sewer charges are based on the winter water usage (water usage during December, January, February). The Board of Public Utilities (BPU) provides the City with water usage data for this period, which is used to calculate the average winter water usage. That usage is used in the formula to determine regular sewer bill amounts for an entire year. More details on this process can be found HERE.
