Due to the recent storms we have received a large number of tree limb/yard waste pickup requests.  We are running 5-7 days behind on getting these items picked up.  Please be patient with us and we will get to you as soon as possible.   As an alternative option, you may bring your yard waste to 175 N. Maple Street and place in the yard waste container.  If you have any questions, you may contact our solid waste department at (859)744-1170.
