Annexaiton of Beckley Woods By The City Of Middletown
The annexation process, having been approved by the Louisville Metro Council, is now fully under way. First, residents
will not receive a Middletown Property Tax Bill until approximately Fall 2015. The next item is the Garbage/Yard Waste/
Recycling process. The City of Middletown has contracted with Industrial Disposal, a division of Republic Services. This
service will begin effective January 1, 2015. Residents will soon receive a letter from the City of Middletown providing
information about this service. Please take note that you will have to follow the contact information contained in the
letter to order your garbage and recycling bins. Residents are not required to order a recycling bin, should they not wish to
recycle. Plastic bags for use in disposal or collection of yard waste material is prohibited! ONLY environmentally friendly
bio-degradable/compostable bags will be permitted. The fine to the homeowner will be $50.00 per incident enforced by
Metro Government. Compostable bags are available at local retailers. They will leave any yard waste behind that is in a
non-conforming plastic bag. Residents may still use self-enclosed containers, carts, cans or tied & bundled twigs and
branches.
The scheduled service days are as follows:
TRASH – THURSDAYS
RECYCLING – EVERY OTHER WEEK – MONDAYS
YARD WASTE – WEDNESDAYS
(Holidays – one day delay)
It is important that you contact your current provider and have your service cancelled effective December 31 2014.
Snow removal will begin January 2015. Please note that if you car is parked on the street during bad weather, a snow plow
may not be able to clear your street. You can help remedy this problem by parking your car in your driveway. Next,
residents are asked to trim back low hanging branches over sidewalks as they pose a danger to people walking on the
sidewalks. The City of Middletown will monitor our sidewalks for compliance, and if an issue is found, they will trim back
the branches.
