Fayette County Residential
We will be picking up residential locations in Fayette in order of pickup day. This means that the drivers will pick up as much of their Tuesday stops as they are able. Unfortunately it is not possible to pick up both days in one in this area and some residential stops in Fayette county will have to be delayed until Wednesday.
We ask that you set your trash out for Tuesday morning, but leave it out for pickup on Wednesday if you are normally a Tuesday pickup.

Spring Cleanups

Spring has sprung and the time to get your cleaning done is soon! City wide cleanups are coming soon and we have posted dates, times and information for many of the cities we will be providing service to for cleanups this year.
We’ve had several dates pushed back due to the CoVid situation, so the dates this year vary considerably from the past cleanups. Some dates are still pending, or may change if the situation does not improve prior to the cleanup date.
