Trash & Recycling

Waverly is a clean city and we want to always keep it that way! So we’ve made disposal and recycling a breeze. Read up on the guidelines and dates to make sure that we get your trash and recycling needs taken care of simply and on time.


Trash Guidelines

Trash is picked-up every Tuesday in the City of Waverly.
Please have your trash out by 6am on Tuesday mornings. 

Here are the special holiday pickup dates:
Thanksgiving – Tuesday, November 20, 2018
Christmas – Wednesday, December 26, 2018

Fees for trash service are included on your utility bill along with water and sewer. 

Please place receptacles no more than two feet away from the curb or road at the end of your driveway.  The arrows on the lid must be pointing toward the street, with the hinges facing away from the street.

All trash must be contained in the cart issued by Republic Services so that the lid is closed to be collected.  The container will only hold up to 200 lbs.  Please do not overload the container. 

Residents are allowed one bulky item per week.  Items that are too large to fit into the poly-cart need to be placed out on your regular scheduled pickup day and must not obstruct the poly-carts.  Extra items are not allowed to exceed 50 lbs and must be less than 3 feet by 4 feet.

Tree trimmings must be tied in bundles not exceeding 3 feet in length and 12 inches in diameter.

Do not discard tires or large appliances in your trash. Please take these items directly to the Coffey County Landfill to dispose of them properly. 

Do not discard batteries, paint cans, used oil or other hazardous wate in your trash. Please take these items directly to the Coffey County Hazardous Waste Deparment to dispose of them properly. 

Dumpsters located in the city are paid for by private individuals and are not for use by the community residents. Please respect the fact that the city has hired a company to pick up your trash. Please do not allow family and friends from outside the city to bring their trash to your residence. 

The county landfill is located east of Burlington on Native Road. The landfill is open to the public on the second Saturday of each month.
