The Public Works Department has the responsibility for the City’s infrastructure. There are three divisions within the Department. The Waste Water Treatment facility oversees the sewer plant and collection system, the Water Treatment Plant treats drinking water, and the Street Department addresses maintenance of the City streets, storm sewers and water distribution systems.
The City of Havana provides weekly household waste collection to most single-family residential dwelling units. Monthly fees for household waste collection/disposal services are included in the monthly water bill. For larger items such as furniture, mattresses and box springs a $5.00 sticker can be purchased at City Hall. You are entitled to six garbage cans or six garbage sacks per pick-up. Any bags in excess of the six allowed must have a $1.00 sticker purchased at City Hall for each additional bag.
All garbage must be placed curbside by 6:00 a.m. June – September and 7:00 a.m. October – May. The garbage route days are illustrated in the map below with this clarification:
Yard Waste is picked up by the City Garbage Department from April thru November on the FIRST and THIRD Thursdays. All yard waste must either be bagged in PAPER YARD WASTE BAGS or placed in trash cans (no larger than 40 gallons), OR bundled and tied with twine (no longer than four feet in length or three feet in diameter). Loose or unbundled yard waste will not be collected.
Recycling is picked up by the City Garbage Department on the FOURTH Thursday of each month. You must have a blue container (which can be purchased anywhere) to signal the driver that there is recycling to pick up. You may have more recycling than what the container will hold placed in an orderly manner beside the recycling tub.
