Trash, Recycling, Yard Waste Pick-up
Effective July 1, 2023, we will be contracting with Ecotech LLC for our trash, recycling and yard waste pickup services. Yard waste will be picked up every week, recycling will be every other week as shown:
The recycling schedule is as follows:
September 6 (this is a Wednesday)
December 27 (this is a Wednesday)
Please mark your calendars to help remember the schedule. Or, better yet, send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
and we’ll send you a reminder every other week.
Ecotech picks up on Tuesday of each week usually between 7AM – 7PM. Items specified should be placed curbside Monday evening or by 6AM Tuesday morning. The trash carts and recycle carts are to be returned to resident’s backyards Tuesday evening. Items should not be placed or left in either the city easement or curbside between Ecotech collection dates. Both trash and recycling will be picked up only if it’s in the supplied cart.
With the easing of restrictions, we’re visiting our friends and family more. Don’t forget to make sure your guests know to park with all four wheels on the pavement, facing the direction of traffic. Violators will be given a ticket!
There has been some concern that some planes flying into and out of Bowman Field are unusually low. If you think a plane is flying in any unsafe manner, contact the FAA Flight Standards District Office at 502-753-4200.
Everyday Safety Measures
-Be aware of your surroundings, including other vehicles and people.
-If out shopping or unloading your vehicle, look for what might seem unusual or out or place.
-Think about being able to provide a detailed description of people and vehicles.

-Never leave a gun (or ammunition) in your vehicle. Always lock your vehicle.
-Park your vehicles in your garage. If the garage is attached to the house, close and lock the garage door and lock the door into the house.
-Do not leave your car fob or keys in the vehicle.
-If you do not have a garage, park the vehicle in the driveway and preferably the backyard driveway. Lock the driveway gate.

It is easy to provide a list but when suddenly faced with a dangerous situation you never know how you might react. Stay alert and stay safe.
