Service Alert


Valued WM Customer, beginning (10/30/23) your (Yard Waste) service is switching weeks. You will be serviced every other week beginning October 30th. In an effort to continue to provide you with the service you expect from us, we ask that your containers maintain a 3-foot clearance around them on service days. Having objects such as a mailbox, debris, or another container within 3 feet of the container scheduled for service, makes it inaccessible. We appreciate your assistance as we continue to work towards a more sustainable tomorrow.​

LEAD Award – West Buechel Mayor Brenda Moore

Ann Cline Deatherage was a lifelong public servant who served as a council member and mayor of the City of Carrollton. After her passing in February 2020, her family and KLC established the Mayor Ann C. Deatherage LEAD Award to recognize a Kentucky mayor whose leadership demonstrates a passion for local public service and commitment to lifelong learning.

The 2023 winner, West Buechel Mayor Brenda Moore, thanked the Deatherage family and KLC for the recognition. “I had the privilege of attending many KLC events with Ann, and I cherish all those memories. She was such a lovely lady,” Mayor Moore stated. “I am honored to receive this year’s LEAD Award as I know how much continuous learning meant to Ann. It is so important that we all continue to embrace new and exciting ways to improve our cities as we work toward the same goal of improved communities and a better Kentucky.”​

WM is about to go live on a major re-route, effective Monday, October 30th. We will be making some changes to collection days for our services across the area in order maximize our efficiency and be more responsive in the case of collection issues, since we’ll have trucks in the same area.

Effective October 30th, recycling and yard waste in West Buechel will be collected on Wednesdays, and will be collected on the same week, rather than on alternating weeks. Wednesday, November 2nd will be an on week for both services, with Wednesday, November 9th being an off week, etc.​

WM will be sending out postcards to all City of West Buechel residents later this week to let them know of the day change for recycling and yard waste.
