ATTENTION: ALL CITY OF VERSAILLES RESIDENTS
Effective Monday, April 13th, 2020: There will be no recycling pick-up for Versailles residents due to the COVID-19 virus. Central Kentucky Hauling will be suspending services until the COVID-19 State of Emergency is lifted. Since recycling isn't bagged and there are liquids, etc. that get on workers when they pick it up, this poses as a hazard to them during this pandemic. Please remember that all garbage must be bagged and in the can. Any bags separate from the can will not be picked up. Any loose garbage items, not bagged, will not be picked up due to the COVID-19 virus.
There will be NO INTERRUPTION in service for the City of Versailles residential trash collection customers for the upcoming Independence Day holiday. Central Kentucky Hauling will be running all regularly scheduled trash collection routes Monday through Friday leading up to the Saturday, July 4th, Independence Day holiday.
