A Full-Service Community
It’s what we do.
Calvert City is a full-service city as well as other civic amenities expected in a thriving community. Find important dates and information about our services below.

We take pride in the safety of our neighborhoods and parks providing residents with all-risk emergency services 24/7.
If you’re new to the City, here’s some helpful information to get you settled in.
The Calvert City Public Works Department is responsible for streets, sanitation, facility maintenance, parks and stormwater management. They are the ones that keep our city looking great! This includes parks, paved roads, culverts and all storm water conveyors, mowing, maintenance and snow removal. In April, this department hosts a Calvert City Spring Clean-up day partnering with local businesses to collect unwanted items that are not accepted during weekly sanitation routes.
While we don’t yet have curbside pickup of recycling, Calvert City has recycling bins at Doctors Park for your convenience. Bins are located in the parking lot beside the Chris Bynum Skate Park. We accept aluminum cans, plastic drink bottles, white paper, newspaper and cardboard. Calvert City works in conjunction with the Marshall County Refuse Department to combine our recycling streams for more efficiency.
The City maintains a crew and vehicles to remove residential and 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.
Once a month, Calvert City offers a bulk and household item pick-up day for all our residents. 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)
- Yard waste and debris must be kept separate from household waste.
- Yard waste and debris must be placed close to the road and cut in 4ft section in order to be picked up by the street department.

Water and Sewer
Calvert City water must meet rigid U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and Kentucky Division of Water health standards daily. We protect our source of groundwater with a wellhead protection plan. The purpose of this plan is to protect our groundwater from contamination before it occurs. We have also initiated an aggressive preventative maintenance program to insure a reliable and fiscally sound system.
The Utility expressly reserves the right to disconnect, confiscate unauthorized devices, and/or discontinue service or any other connection with or without notice where the Utility discovers, finds, or is otherwise made aware of any such installation that poses a threat to the supply, public health or public safety.
