INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – On Thursday, the Indianapolis Department of Public Works said it was suspending heavy-trash pickup until Sept. 4.
The department said the suspension of heavy-trash pickup is for this week and next week, affecting those areas that normally experience heavy-trash pickup on the fourth and first weeks of the month.
Staffing issues, according to the department, have led to delays in areas served by Indy Public Works. This move will give the department time to prioritize standard, curbside trash pick-up, uninterrupted.
Next week, Indy Public Works leaders will meet to assess the situation for the week of Sept. 6, according to the department.
