Date: November 18, 2022 – For Immediate Release




City Hall and Parks Administration Office will be closed on Thursday, November 24 and Friday, November 25.


Transit - City transit buses will not run on Thursday, November 24 and will run on a reduced schedule from 7:45 a.m. to 4:15 p.m. on Friday, November 25.


Sanitation - Residential and commercial customers: Normal trash collection will occur Monday, November 21, through Wednesday, November 23. There will be no trash collection on  Thursday, November 24. Thursday routes will be collected on Friday, November 25 and Friday routes will be collected on Saturday, November 26. 

Residents are reminded that the City’s cost-saving automated system and low sanitation rates do not allow for extra trash to be piled on, in, or around the mobile cart; lids must be closed for collection. Special blue bags are available to purchase at City Hall for $2.50 each or five (5) for $10.00. The bags should be placed near the mobile cart for collection.

Please be sure that carts are curbside by 6:00 a.m. and are removed from the curb on the same day serviced. In the event a return for collection is needed, a $25.00 service fee may be added to your monthly sanitation bill.  Ensure carts open towards the street and that there is at least four (4) feet of clearance around the cart for our automated system to collect your cart.   The four (4) feet of clearance is especially important when holiday visitors are parked on the street.


The employees and families of the City of Owensboro wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving!
