Garbage and recycling

The City of Parkway Village has contracted with Waste Management for all waste collection services.

Regular collection for trash, recycling, yard waste and junk removal occurs on Tuesday, but may be delayed by one day in weeks that include a Federal holiday.  Containers may be placed at the front curb of your residence no earlier than noon on the day before pickup, and must be removed from public view no later than noon the day following pickup. 

Beginning at November 1, 2012, residents will be invoiced quarterly (4 times per year) at the rate of $39.00 for collection of general trash, yard waste, and disposal of large items.  The City of Parkway Village continues to provide recycling services at no cost to property owners and/or residents.

If you receive an invoice for an amount in excess of $39.00 for a 3-month period of service, contact Waste Management at 962-5000.  Inform Customer Service that you reside in Parkway Village and that the City has a contract for service at the rate of $39.00 per quarter.  

The collection day for yard waste has been changed to coincide with other Waste Management services.  All services are rendered on Tuesdays, excepting for delays due to the Waste Management schedule.  

PLEASE NOTE:  Yard waste, trash, recycling, junk and other refuse should be placed curbside after noon on the day before service, and must be removed from public view by noon on the day following service.

  • Trash/recycling bins curbside before/after ordinance guidelines can result in $15 per weekly occurrence.

  • Junk placed curbside before/after ordinance guideline can result in $15 per day (junk is to be placed curbside no earlier than Monday after 12:00 pm).

WASTE COLLECTION must be arranged by residents through through Waste Management of Kentucky (call 502-969-2355 to schedule service).  Waste Management provides containers for trash and recyclables.  The City provides recycling services, while residents pay for other waste collection services, including trash, yard waste, and one large item per week.  Garbage must be completely covered in order to inhibit rodent activity.  Yard waste may be bagged, placed in containers, or tied in 3 - 4 foot long bundles.  Please note that effective January 1, 2015, yard waste must be placed in ASTMD6400 bio-degradable/compostable plastic bags, paper bags, or reusable bins. Tied bundles will continue to be collected.  It is advised that notice be given to Waste Management when a large item is to be picked up.
