Trash and Recycling Service

Recycling of Paper Products:

Please note, due to the Lexington Recycling Center temporarily suspending the recycling of paper, City of Versailles residents are being asked to not put paper items in with their recycling until further notice.
Paper that is put in recycling will be routed to the landfill from the Recycling Center. This policy is expected to last several months. Residents are encouraged to continue to recycle dry corrugated cardboard, plastic screw-top bottles and jugs, clean glass bottles and jars, and clean aluminum and steel cans.
 The City of Versailles and its contracted trash hauler, Central Kentucky Hauling,  belong to a group comprised of several area cities and counties that utilize the Lexington Recycling  Center. The Lexington Recycling Center is pursuing new outlets that will accept all paper products.


City ordinance requires every residential and commercial location to have garbage pick-up. Central Kentucky Hauling is the exclusive garbage contractor for all Versailles residential customers. Versailles residents living inside the city limits of Versailles will have residential garbage collection through Central Kentucky Hauling and will be signed up for service when they sign up for water/sewer service. The charge for residential garbage will be on the utilities bill.  If you have questions regarding your service, you may contact Central Kentucky Hauling at 859-225-2521. If you have questions about your bill, please contact our utilities office at 859-873-5437. Any additional garbage pick-up questions can be directed to Paul Simmons, Assistant Public Works Director, at 859-873-2245 or by email at

Recycling is picked up in the city limits every Wednesday by Central Kentucky Hauling.
