Heavy Trash Days on April 14 & 21
The Town's Spring Heavy Trash Day event will be held on two consecutive Saturdays in April: the 14th and 21st, from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. both days. The event is open to Town of Plainfield residents only.
Residents may deposit acceptable items in designated dumpsters at the Town garage located at 986 S. Center Street. No hazardous waste, tires, building materials, or yard waste will be accepted. This is a free event provided to Plainfield residents in an effort to help keep our community clean.
NEW THIS YEAR: Bee Environmental will be on site to accept the following items for recycling:
Computer monitors including laptop computers, netbooks, notebooks, tablet PCs or e-readers (with screen size greater than 4 inches measured diagonally), Computers (i.e., computer towers)

The Town will also host the Annual Community Spring Clean-Up Event, where
volunteers assist in picking up trash along roadways and ditches in an effort to keep trash and debris out of our waterways. Commercial property owners are also encouraged to do a widespread clean up event of their properties. Adopt-A-Road sponsors will be out picking up trash along their adopted routes, as well.

Smith Road to Close as Roundabout is Constructed
The intersection of Smith Road (CR 900E) and Township Line Road will close during the first week of April so construction crews can begin to build a new roundabout intersection there. The intersection is expected to be closed through the end of July.
The recommended detour route is taking the Ronald Reagan Parkway to CR 200S on the east and Dan Jones Road to CR 200S on the west. Those who live in the Settlement subdivision will have to use the entrance on CR 200S to access their subdivision.
Because Township Line Road is also blocked on the west end at Dan Jones Road for bridge work, those who live on Township Line Road will have only one way in and out of their homes, and that is to use Shady Lane North from US 40 to Township Line Road. The bridge is expected to be under construction through the end of June. Following completion of the “west” bridge, crews will then move to replace a bridge east of that location. Total construction of Township Line Road is expected to be complete by the end of the year.
Crews will begin work at the Smith Road intersection by relocating underground sanitary and storm sewer lines as well as water lines.
