Welcome to the Sanitation Department website. The City of Murray employs 10 full-time staff in the sanitation department. The City also has 3 sanitation trucks to provide curbside service to residents living in the Murray City Limits.

The Sanitation Department furnishes residential customers with a 96-gallon, covered, wheeled container that must be placed at the curb on the designated pick-up day. Exemptions are made for elderly and handicapped residents. Smaller containers are available for senior citizens who live alone, allowing them to pay a reduced rate. An extra 96-gallon container is available for an additional $10.00 per month.

Residential or commercial customers with inquiries about large containers and rates can contact the Sanitation (solid waste) Division at 270-762-0380.
