Windy Hills Garbage, Recycling & Yard Waste Collection
Normal Garbage Pick-up: Tuesday and Friday (3- 30 gallon garbage cans or equivalent) Windy Hills has always had BACK DOOR GARBAGE pick-up. This has NOT changed.
Ecotech employees will come to the back door to pick up GARBAGE ONLY not recycling. Windy Hills has NEVER had back door recycling pick up.
Recycling Pick-up: Tuesday (Must be at the curb) Ecotech has provided a 64 gallon green/yellow attached lid can with wheels for weekly recycling only. These cans are NOT for garbage, weekly recycling only. Other waste will contaminate the recycling and will force Ecotech to put the contaminated recycling in with the garbage.
The recycling cans will be collected at the curb. Cans need to be placed at the end of the drive opposite the paper/mail box FACING the street. These cans are picked up by an automatic lift arm on the truck. Oversize cardboard boxes need to be broken down so that they fit in the recycling receptacle. There can be nothing on top of the cans since they are picked up by the automatic lift arm.
Also, remember the packing that is often included in the cardboard boxes, such as plastic bags/pellets, peanuts, etc., is NOT recyclable. Please remove the packing before placing the cardboard in the can.
Other types of recycling receptacles cannot be used because the truck lift arm cannot pick them up. Overflow recycling cannot be left on the curb because it also cannot be picked up. If you purchased one of the blue cans from the hardware store, it can be used but since it is NOT industrial grade, it might be damaged by Ecotech equipment.
Yard Waste Pick-up: Mondays from March thru November and alternate weeks during the winter months, December – February. (No yard waste collection at the Condominiums.)
Contact Numbers: 502-935-1130 for missed pick-up or to schedule large items.
All garbage is collected twice weekly on Tuesdays and Fridays.
Ecotech will NOT pick it up at your back door like they will the smaller containers since cans must be taken to the curb to be dumped and returned to the rear after dumping.
Effective July 1, 2019, the City entered into a new sanitation collection contract with Ecotech.
