Community Yard Sale and Clean Up is May 4-6

The 2017 Spring Community Yard Sale and Clean Up is right around the corner. This year’s event will be held Thursday, May 4 through Saturday, May 6.

If you would like to have your yard sale promoted, you need to provide your last name, address of your sale location and the day or dates you will sell (May 4, 5 and/or 6) to Rising Sun City Hall no later than Tuesday, April 18.  

You may email your information to Amy Martin at, 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.

In addition to listing all yard sale locations in the local newspaper on April 27, we will also provide a map you can download from this website or pick up at the Rising Sun Municipal Utilities desk.  (Locations outside the city limits may or may not be available to place on the map.)
