Do you have limbs, branches and shrubs to trim? If the answer is yes, then this is the time to take action.
The Owensboro Sanitation Department will soon begin converting its equipment over for leaf collection duties. After that conversion is complete, the department will not be able to collect yard waste items that are not bagged for collection.
The final opportunity to have limbs and brush collected will be on our customer’s last scheduled trash collection day during the week of 15 – 19 October. During that week, trucks will make a final pass through neighborhoods. The last day for collections will be:
– Monday customers: 15TH October
– Tuesday customers: 16TH October
– Wednesday customers: 17TH October
– Thursday customers: 18TH October
– Friday customers: 19TH October
Crews will collect items that are 6-inches in diameter or smaller. Please remember to have items out by 6:00 AM on collection day and that we are unable to collect root balls, dirt or contractor cuttings. Please remember to bag loose material such as garden cuttings and trimmings. Crews will continue to collect yard waste items that are bagged and placed curbside throughout leaf collection season.
As always, there are no additional charges for yard waste collections.
Thank You, from the nice folks at the Owensboro Sanitation Department
