Spring Community Yard Sale And Clean Up May 3-5

The 2018 Spring Community Yard Sale and Clean Up is Thursday, May 3 through Saturday, May 5.

The City of Rising Sun would like to help promote your yard sale for free!  Please provide your last name, address of your sale location and the day(s) you will sell (May 3, 4 and/or 5).  You may email your information to Amy Martin at
amartin@cityofrisingsun.com, call her at 812-438-3340 or sign up at the Rising Sun Municipal Utilities desk (200 N. Walnut St.) during normal business hours.  If you call after business hours and reach voice mail, please spell your last name. 

The newspaper ad promoting the event and participants will be published on Thursday, April 26. To make the newspaper ad, you must provide your information by 5 pm Thursday, April 19.  Between April 20 and May 3, we will make occasional participant updates online and to the handouts available at the utilities desk, but there will only be one ad published in the paper.  So don’t miss the April 19 deadline.

For city and county residents only, the City of Rising Sun will make dumpsters available at the city’s brush dump Saturday, May 5 from 7 am to 11 am.  You are encouraged to come early as, at times, the dumpsters fill quickly.  City workers will be on hand to help maximize space in the dumpsters.

The following items are not permitted at the dump: liquids, hazardous waste, wet or lead paint, closed drums, Freon containing refrigeration equipment, tires or mercury containing lamps.
