Residential Sanitation Collection in the City of Paris

Sanitation is picked up 5 days a week Monday through Friday. If you are not sure what your day is, you can call the public works dispatcher.

The sanitation system in Paris uses the train style buggies.

The current rate for pick-up is $16.00 per month, which is billed on your Board of Pubic Utilities bill.

The city picks up sanitation garbage only. No appliances, furniture, tires, freezers, etc. shall be picked up. These products will have to be taken to the the landfill at the resident’s expense. All boxes are to be broken down and tied up so they won’t blow out of the sanitation buggies. Limit of 10 garbage bags should not weigh over 50 lbs.

Notice Effective May 6, 2013
The City Ordinance regarding trash has changed to curb side pickup. This means that trash should be placed within 3 feet of the street or curb. Trash needs to be out by 7:00 am the day of pickup and no more than 24 hours prior to pick up day.

For some residents, pickup day will change. In those instances, a door hanger will be placed on a residence indicating the new day.

For persons that are handicapped and there is no one living in the residence that can take trash to the curb, Paris Public Works will need a current doctor’s excuse stating that the resident is unable to take trash to the curb. Public Works will then pick up the trash in front of the residence. Public Works will keep the doctor’s excuse on file.

If there is an alley behind a residence, Public Works will continue to pick the trash up in the alley but must be able to reach the trash from the pavement in the alley.
