Public Works

The Calvert City Public Works Department is responsible for Streets, Sanitation, Facility Maintenance and Stormwater Management.  

Street DepartmentBradley Darnell, Public Works Director

 The Street Department is charged with the maintenance of 35 miles of city streets and their right of ways.  This includes not only the paved road maintenance, but the culverts and all storm water conveyors, mowing and maintenance of some unpaved portions of the City streets and snow removal.  They operate all the heavy equipment necessary to affect repairs to the City’s roadways and right of ways 

Sanitation Department

The Sanitation Department does not contract solid waste removal.  The City maintains a crew and vehicles to remove residential and small business solid waste on a bi-weekly basis.  Customers are either on the Monday/Thursday or Tuesday/ Friday route.  All customers receive one solid waste cart.  Additional carts may be obtained for an additional charge as necessary to handle the customer’s needs.  Each cart has a serial number assigned and inscribed on it.  A once monthly special pickup for large and or bulk household items or yard debris is available for all our customers.

 Curbside leaf collection is available during the fall and early winter months normally November through January. The City provides leaf bags at no expense to the resident.  Residents may obtain leaf bags at Calvert City – City Hall Monday – Friday between the hours of 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.  Bagged leaves are pickup up within 24 hours of notification to City Hall (395-7138)


Note: Yard waste and debris must be kept separate from household waste.

The Sanitation Department will not pickup certain items; some of these are paint cans with their liquid contents, tires, dead animals, wire, used cylinder oil, asphalt shingles, construction materials and batteries.  There is a specific way to dispose of these items and a phone call to City Hall will help you and the City begin the appropriate disposal process.

While we don’t yet have curbside pickup of recycling, Calvert City has recycling bins at Doctor's Memorial Park for your convenience.  They are located in the parking lot beside the Skate Park.  We accept aluminum cans, plastic drink bottles, white paper, newspaper & cardboard.  Calvert City works in conjunction with the Marshall County Refuse Department to combine our recycling streams for more efficiency.
