On this Tell Me More episode, Assistant Public Works Director Chris Yarber explains the curbside recycling program, the accepted items, and how residents can sign up for the service. Visit Curbside Recycling for more information.
The City of Paducah offers voluntary, single-stream, curbside recycling for its residential customers. Residents can sign up at any time. The fee is $3 per month for one 96-gallon blue rollout container that will be collected twice per month. If a resident needs additional recycling containers, each one will be an additional $3 per month charge. The fee will appear on the property owner’s Paducah Water bill.
The program has been under development for the past few months with the first collection scheduled to begin January 22, 2018. Recycling rollout containers will be delivered to participating addresses over the next few weeks.
Collection is at curbside/roadside (no alleys). If your normal trash collection day is either Tuesday or Wednesday, recycling will be collected on the first and third Monday of the month. If your normal trash collection day is either Thursday or Friday, recycling will be collected on the second and fourth Monday of the month.
