The City of Flemingsburg is a small rural city nestled in the North Eastern hills of Kentucky surrounded by rolling farm land and hillsides boasting of orange, red, yellow and green. The area has become home to many Amish and Mennonite families because of the rich and fertile land. Flemingsburg takes pride in our beautiful city with brick paved sidewalks and acorn shaped lamps. It is reminiscent of times gone by and a simpler way of life. We also take pride in our citizens who will welcome you with a smile.
The City of Flemingsburg will be conducting Free Clean-Up Week July 22-July 26. There will be a dumpster located at the Wastewater Treatment Plant (497 E. Water St.) from 1:00-4:00 p.m. every day that week. Residents will be responsible for hauling, unloading, and putting items in the dumpsters. CITY EMPLOYEES WILL NOT BE HANDLING ANY ITEMS. Only City residents will be given access to the dumpster. The attendant on duty will verify residency by checking photo IDs. Please have IDs readily available. We have the right to decline any items at any time.
Prohibited items include (but are not limited to):
Paint – unless dried up
Beginning May 1st, 2019, the City of Flemingsburg will be starting the Streetscape Project. The Streetscape Project will result in new sidewalks on and around the Elizaville Avenue area. This project will take about 3 months to complete. During this time, we ask that the public be aware of traffic changes and lane closures. Please pay attention to signs and those working on the sidewalks. We would like to thank the public for their patience and understanding during this construction period.
Solid Waste and Recycling Changes
The City of Flemingsburg will no longer be picking up curbside recycling. If a resident currently has a blue recycling can, they will be able to keep it and use it as they would like. If it’s used for garbage, it will be treated as a garbage can per the City’s ordinance. The City uses stickers on trash cans to let residents know when cans need to be repaired or replaced. Please be aware of these stickers.
Recycling can still be brought to the City’s recycling trailers. The following items are the ONLY items that can be recycled.
- Cardboard, magazines, or any kind of paper
- #1 PETE plastics (Drink bottles with lids removed)
- HDPE #2 Plastics (milk & household detergent bottles)
- Aluminum cans
- Metal food cans
- HDPE #2 Shopping bags
Beginning May 2nd, 2019, the recycling trailers will be moved from the garage by City Hall to the garage on the hill. The trailers will be kept locked behind a gate. There will be an attendant on duty to check that the recyclables can be accepted. Recyclables can only be dropped off between 1p.m. and 4p.m. EVERY Thursday and Friday.
