New Garbage Routes Effective January 5, 2009

The new fleet has greatly reduced gas consumption and down time of the trucks they replaced. Letcher County Judge Executive Jim Ward and the Fiscal Court continue to do everything possible to keep Letcher County garbage rates the lowest in the region. To further reduce collection costs the Sanitation Department implemented a new collection schedule effective January 5, 2009 to allow county sanitation workers to be more efficient. Several areas of the county now have a new collection day, all of which are listed above.
