Street & Sanitation

Street Department

The Street, Sanitation and Recycling Department is responsible for:

  • collecting garbage, recyclables, and yard waste from properties of 4 units or less within the West Lafayette Sewer District. 
  • snow removal
  • street maintenance
  • maintaining traffic signs and signals
  • maintaining sewers and storm drains.

The Street Department needs your help! There are several areas throughout the city with low-hanging branches that make it difficult for the garbage trucks, recycling trucks, street sweepers and school buses to get close to the curb.

Please take a look at their street trees to see whether you need to prune off the lowest branches:

  • Are they 8 feet above sidewalks?
  • Are they 15 feet above the street?

Need help or advice? We are here to help! Contact the Department of Development by phone or online here: Contact the Department of Development or 775-5160.

Thanks for your help in keeping our city beautiful!!
