Sanitation - Barbourmeade Ky

Garbage Collection

  • Garbage will be collected every Monday morning at the curb.
  • A 95 gallon toter with wheels, handles and attached lid is provided for your convenience.
  • Please do not set cans out before Sunday night and promptly remove them from the curb as soon as possible after pick-up.
  • Please use the provided lids as to avoid items being blown out of the container on days with inclement weather.

The City of Barbourmeade has made provisions for those residents who are unable to take their garbage to the curb due to physical limitations. Please feel free to contact the Barbourmeade Sanitation Commissioner for more information.
