The Town will have its Heavy Trash Days on two consecutive Saturdays, October 7 and October 14, followed by the Hendricks County Solid Waste Management District’s final Tox-Away Day of the year on October 21.

From 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Plainfield residents may deposit acceptable heavy trash items in designated dumpsters at the Town garage located at 986 S. Center Street. Items accepted include just about everything except hazardous waste, tires, building materials, or yard waste. This also includes furniture, although residents who bring mattresses will have to handle getting the mattresses out of their vehicle and into the dumpster on their own. For sanitary reasons, DPW staff will not handle such items.

This is the last time the Town of Plainfield will be accepting televisions and computer monitors due to the high cost of disposing.

However, Ray’s Document Destruction will be back. The shredder will be set up in the parking lot at the Plainfield Community Middle School, just down Longfellow Lane from the Department of Public Works garage. Sensitive documents residents would like to have shredded can be dropped off at the Ray's truck. It will be available both Saturdays during the same hours.

Please note : the Town’s Heavy Trash Days are for residents only. Residents should bring identification with them that has their address on it.
