City of Covington Recycling Schedule Change

In an effort to maintain recycling services to all residents and to maintain current rates, Coastal Environmental Services is changing the City of Covington’s recycling schedule.  All recycling will now be picked up on Thursdays citywide. Glass will no longer be included in the recycling plan.

Residents should be aware that only true recycling materials will be picked up on Thursdays.  If any regular household waste is included in the recycle cart, it will not be picked up.  To verify what is and is not included in the recycle plan, residents can view detailed information on Coastal Environmental Services’ website at  Additionally, informational brochures will be included in the next water bill. 
These changes will become effective on Independence Day, next Thursday, July 4, 2019. Garbage collection days will remain the same.  Thursday collection is only for recycling. The City of Covington and Coastal Environmental Services are hopeful that these changes will enable those who recycle to continue to do so while maintaining the same rates for all residents throughout the city.
