Welcome to the Sanitation Department website.

The only holidays that Sanitation services will not run their normally scheduled days are Thanksgiving and Christmas. All other holidays sanitation services will be provided as regularly scheduled. The City will post scheduled changes for these holidays on its Facebook and Twitter accounts

The City of Murray currently utilizes Republic Services to provide solid waste collection services for all residential, business and industrial customers within the Murray city limits. Per City Ordinance, the City must provide sanitation collection services to all entities within the city limits and private collectors are prohibited from conducting business within the corporate city limits.

The Sanitation Department furnishes residential customers with a 96-gallon, covered, wheeled cart that must be placed at the curb on the designated pick-up day. Exemptions are made for elderly and handicapped residents. Please contact the Sanitation Department to apply for an exemption.

The monthly rate for residential sanitation service is $15.00 per month. Extra carts are available for an additional $10.00 per month per cart. A reduced sanitation rate of $9.00 per month is available for residents 65 years of age or older, who live alone.

Construction "roll-off" containers measuring from 20 to 30 cubic yards are available. Dumpsters measuring 2, 4, 6 and 8 cubic yards are also available for commercial customers. Rates are customized based on volume and frequency of pick up for commercial customers.

Residential or commercial customers with inquiries regarding container sizes and rates can contact the Sanitation (solid waste) Division at (270) 762-0380.
