National Garbage Man Day
Please join us the week of June 17th, 2017, to celebrate the hard-working Sanitation crew we are fortunate to have here in Piqua. We have a great group of dedicated, hard-working Sanitation staff members who perform their jobs day in and day out with excellence to keep Piqua safe and clean. Show your appreciation by thanking your trash collectors. Click on the link below for some Celebration Ideas to show your garbage collection providers that you appreciate them.
The Sanitation Department begins daily collections at 6:30 am and works until the routes are completed each day. The department maintains a fleet of 6 trucks to collect refuse, recycling, bulk items (furniture, appliances, etc.), and yard waste. These items all have to be disposed of in separate locations, so separate trucks may be utilized for each category of debris. Regular refuse and trash is taken to the Miami County Transfer Station; Yard waste is taken to the city’s compost facility; Bulk metal items are taken to a scrap metal facility; and the recyclable items are taken to a material recovery facility for recycling.
The department observes the following holidays: New Year’s Day, Martin Luther King Day, President’s Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day. Collection will be delayed one day after a holiday with Friday’s stops being collected on Saturday. Refuse Holiday Schedule for 2016 / Refuse Holiday Schedule for 2017
See the Route Map for details regarding collection days. UPDATE: Refuse collection routes were be adjusted beginning May 1, 2015. See the New Route Map here.
