Flood Debris Can Be Dropped Off at City Waste Reduction Center

Monday October 7, 2013

Facility at 636 Meriwether Ave. open starting Oct. 8

Citizens who have damaged household items from the record rainfall this weekend can take it to the city’s Waste Reduction Center at 636 Meriwether Ave. starting Tuesday, Oct. 8., 8 a.m.

There will be no charge for citizens of Louisville/Jefferson County. However, residents will have to provide two forms of identification to verify their Jefferson County residency. They will need to present to the attendant a utility bill and a driver’s license.

The flood debris drop-off service will run from Tuesday, October 8th – Saturday, October 26th, 2013. The hours of operation for the free drop off are:

Monday -- Friday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Saturday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Please note that the Waste Reduction Center is normally closed Monday and Tuesday but will be opened for citizen flood debris drop-off only. Commercial/business vehicles will have to pay the normal fees for dumping flood debris or other materials during this period.

If a citizen hires an individual or business to remove the flood debris, the citizen will need to accompany them to the drop-off center or provide the hauler with the same two forms of identification to present at the facility.
