Trash for Cash
Trash for Cash, a state program being rolled out in Louisville for the first time, helps ensure roadways around Louisville are kept clean while raising money for local youth-serving nonprofits. Qualified nonprofits can apply through Brightside.
Brightside will then work with the nonprofit to find a roadway that needs attention, and the nonprofit will earn $100 per mile they help clean. Available routes can be found here.
“Trash for Cash is a win-win for Louisville; the city gets cleaner streets, and local youth-serving nonprofits get more funds to help our kids,” Mayor Greenberg said. “I’m very proud this program has come to Louisville, and I want to thank the hard work of our Metro staff in making it a reality. I hope some of our outstanding nonprofits take advantage of this program to raise funds and help keep Louisville beautiful.”
Applications will be accepted from May 1 - May 15, 2023.
Update - 6/27/23: Thank you to all our initial applicants! Acceptance emails will be going out this week - next steps for getting your cleanups underway will be included. We look forward to seeing our community cleaner and supporting our youth serving non-profits in the process.
For any organization that missed out on our first round of applications - we will be reopening applications in mid-July. Stay tuned to this page and our social media for updates!
