Spring Trash Pick-Up 2018


(Feb. 21, 2018) The annual spring trash pick-up will begin on Monday, March 19th for all city addresses.  While a "zone" system has been used in the past, this year all residents interested in taking advantage of this city service should place their items curbside by 7 a.m. on the morning of March 19th. 

There will be no call backs.  Once the public works crew has completed your street, they will not return for items set out later.  Residents are responsible for disposing of items that are not picked up. 

The city asks that residents delay setting out their items until the weekend before the start date.

Restrictions on items available to be picked-up are as follows:

  • The total volume of the items a household sets out for pick-up should be no larger than the equivalent of one standard pickup truck load. 
  • All items for pickup should be placed curbside but kept out of drainage ditches.
  • No single item may weigh over 100 pounds.
  • No limbs or yard waste will be picked-up.
  • No appliances, air conditioners, batteries, tires or any other EPA regulated items will be picked-up.
  • DO NOT leave any containers curbside that you don't want taken away (i.e. trash cans, wheel barrows, etc.).  The public works crew will haul away ALL permissible items that are left curbside.

If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact City Hall at (270) 365-9575, or visit us in-person at our location at 206 East Market Street in downtown Princeton.
