Garbage collection days to change for some Paducah homes

PADUCAH, KY — The City of Paducah says garbage pick-up days for approximately 3,000 homes will be changed.

Beginning Monday, December 11, nearly 1/3 of the City of Paducah residential solid waste customers will have the day their garbage is picked up shifted.

Notices have been given to affected customers. Anyone can also look up an interactive map of the new pickup days by clicking here.

Along with the shift, the work hours for residential crews will also be changed starting Monday.

Crews will go from working 4:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. to the new hours of 7:00 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.

The hours will be changed so that the employees can work during the daytime.

The new hours are only for residential crews. Crews that pickup from commercial dumpsters will still work from 4:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.

City Engineer-Public Works Director Rick Murphy says the changes will also help prepare for the launch of the voluntary, single-stream curbside recycling program in mid-January.

Anyone with questions about garbage pickup or the curbside recycling program can call the Engineering-Public Works Department at 270-444-8511.
