Remember to rinse all food residue from recycling items … Eco-Tech cannot recycle items that have food particles or are soiled by food residue. Labels need not be removed from bottles, jars, or cans. If available, please separate paper products from the rest of the materials using paper bags.
Yard waste collection is provided on an INDIVIDUAL SUBSCRIPTION BASIS only. Subscribers will be invoiced directly by Eco-Tech. Eco-Tech is the only authorized residential sanitation company to operate in the City and will provide trash collection and recycling each Wednesday to all homes within the City. This does not prevent you from having a landscaping service or yard service company. Eco-Tech provides for disposal only. Your yard waste WILL NOT be picked up if you have not subscribed to yard waste service.
Eco-Tech will provide each subscription customer with a green, 95-gallon waste wheeler (trash can on wheels). Green cans are for yard waste only. The maximum weight in the green can is 75 pounds.
Yard waste will be collected each Wednesday from the beginning of March to the end of December. Eco-Tech will service the green can and up to ten (10) yard waste bags (paper only) per week. You may substitute standard 32-gallon trash cans for the bags if they are CLEARLY marked as yard waste. Eco-Tech has yard waste stickers available if needed. Acceptable yard waste items are grass clippings, leaves, brush, and other lawn vegetative matter. Large amounts of dirt or rock are not acceptable. Twigs that do not fit into the green can may be cut and bundled, not to exceed fifty (50) pounds. Cut twigs should be no longer than four (4) feet in length and three (3) inches in diameter. Branches and tree stumps are not acceptable.
PLEASE NOTE: Per Louisville Metro ordinance 51.509 and Indian Hills contract with Eco-Tech, yard waste MAY NOT be mixed with any other solid waste and placed out for collection. Doing so is a violation of law.
To sign up for service call Eco-Tech at 935-1130. Major credit cards are accepted. Identify yourself as a resident of the City of Indian Hills. Per our contract, the fee for the ten month service period (July – December 2021 & March – June 2022) is $68.83. As City contracts must be on a fiscal year basis, pro-rated billing for partial year’s service is not available.
Hazardous Weather & Other Access Impediments
In the event of weather related or other hazardous road conditions, Eco-Tech will go slowly and carefully to collect from as many Indian Hills residents as can be safely accomplished. There may be some locations where the road or a driveway is not sufficiently clear or accessible, and a service truck or worker cannot safely get to the trash / recycling. Eco-Tech will do their very best to collect as much as they can, but personnel safety and property protection will always take precedence.
If your service is not satisfactory, call ECO-TECH first. Their telephone number is 935-1130. This is the most expeditious manner for resolution. If you still are not satisfied, call Public Works Director Jim Graven at 893-1375 Ext 103 (Office) or 552-4250 (Cell).
