Frequently Asked Questions

Why do I pay for extra yardage?
Your service charges are based on a maximum amount of yards per week. Any extra yardage triggers extra fees in our billing system. These fees account for fees Ohio Valley Waste Service incurs for disposal of more waste than scheduled as well as delays on the route and additional man hours due to more time spent at a stop with extra yardage.
What holidays might affect my collection day?
Ohio Valley Waste Service observes New Years’ Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day (Fourth of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day on the days on which they fall. If your collection falls on or after a weekday holiday it will be one day later that week. We do collect on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, President's Day, Columbus Day and Veterans Day.
