Welcome to the website for the City of Greenwood!


Sanitary Sewer/Waste Management
Sanitary sewer usage rates are based on the amount of water entering sewer drains. This amount is estimated based upon your water usage. To lower your usage charge each month, consider being more mindful of how much water is coming into your home each month.  

If you are a Greenwood trash customer, please keep all refuse secure in bags or trash receptacles, and remember, recycling is free! 


  • Check for leaks. If you see a spike in usage or have any suspicion of a leak, call your water provider to send a leak kit or dispatch a technician
    to check your meter.

  • Buy energy efficient appliances. Many new appliances use less water, which in turn, produces less gray water entering the sanitary sewer system.
  • Recycle! Recycling is great for the environment and also keeps our trash rates as low as possible. Click here to request a recycling bin.

You can do your part to help Greenwood maintain low stormwater rates and keep our waterways clean all year long.

Winter:  Limit the amount of salt you use to melt ice, as the salt eventually makes it way into our streams and rivers and is harmful to many freshwater aquatic organisms. Also, start thinking about adding native plants to your yard this spring. Plants native to Indiana have deeper roots than turfgrass, so they help absorb stormwater and filter out pollutants.

Spring:  Along with adding native plants to your landscape, take care of the lawn you already have by keeping grass about three inches tall. Taller grass cools the soil, needs less water and shades out weed growth. It is also more insect and disease resistant. Consider planting a rain garden.

Summer:  Conserve water by using only what your lawn needs. By watering late in the afternoon, water will reach roots more easily and won’t evaporate as quickly in the hot summer sun. Also, make sure your sprinkler is watering your lawn—not your driveway or sidewalk.

Fall:  Rather than bagging all your leaves for disposal, try composting. Compost piles are easy to make, and you’ll end up with rich, earthy fertilizer for your lawn and garden. Learn how to create your own compost pile.


  • Keep a rain barrel and use the water for gardens, flower beds and house plants.
