Message from our Department of Public Works regarding mattress pickup:
The City of Beech Grove has contracted Waste Management to collect mattresses and box springs on the 1st and 3rd Monday of each month. There is a $25.00 charge for each piece that is out for collection, and all mattresses and box springs must be wrapped in plastic due to Covid-19 and bed bugs. Any mattresses or box springs not wrapped in plastic will not be collected. Please call DPW at (317) 803-9098 if you would like to be put on the list for pickup. You must notify DPW by the Thursday prior to the next scheduled collection day. All charges pursuant to collection of these items will be added to your monthly sewer bill.

From the Office of Brad Meriwether...
"Our goal at DPW is to provide our community with the highest quality public service that continually enhances the quality of life for all of our residents. These services will be provided by dedicated, trained, and responsible employees who are committed to excellence".
Indiana law requires all property owners to make an important phone call before doing any digging on their land. Whether you are planting a tree, putting in a new fence or children’s playset, or digging for any other reason, it is critical that you call Indiana 811 at least 48 hours in advance.
By calling 811, utility crews can come to your property and mark the locations of underground utility lines at no charge to you. The markings are done with chalk that rain will eventually wash away. Allowing utility crews to mark line locations will help keep you - or a contractor - from accidentally hitting a gas line, water main or other underground line. This will help keep service to you and your neighbors from being disrupted, and help protect you from expensive repair costs and a potential fine. More importantly, calling before you dig can help protect you from a serious or even fatal injury. Making this brief phone call is important no matter how shallow you dig or how simple your project is, since different utility lines are buried at different depths.
