The Sanitation Division provides many areas of service for the Paris community. Safety is a high priority in our daily operations.
Residential Trash Collection
The City of Paris Sanitation Department WILL maintain its normal collection Friday schedule on Good Friday, April 10th, to better provide outstanding service to its residents. Normal collection policy and procedures will apply. The Compost Site will NOT be open on Good Friday, but will be open on Saturday, April 11th.
Residential trash pick-up is provided twice per week for the City of Paris. View the full Residential Collection Policy and holiday observance calendar (PDF). Click the following link to view the sanitation schedule map. Sanitation Schedule Map (PDF)
A brush collection unit is provided to the residents for limb and brush removal from the curbside for a charge that will be applied to your water bill after the debris is picked up. The City of Paris takes pride in its community, and we urge you to call in your brush or limbs for collection in order to keep our neighborhoods clean and for the safety of our children and pedestrians.
This city’s compost site, located at 705 Field Street, provides an area for Paris residents to dispose of limbs or brush twice per month at no charge. A current water bill and a valid driver’s license / ID will be needed in order to unload. The site also provides wood mulch free of charge. View the Compost Site rules (PDF).
The compost site hours of operation are: Wednesday - Friday 8:30am - 12:00pm and 1:00pm - 4:30pm and Saturday 10:00am - 2:00pm. The phone number is 903.783.1643.
