Donation Bins

The Donation Drop-Off Bin Licensing Program is established by local Ordinance 156 to locally license companies that provide and install Donation Drop-Off Bins, as well as to permit each Donation Drop-Off Bin. The Ordinance also proscribes requirements for ongoing maintenance and penalties for noncompliance. All companies desiring to place Donation Bins in Louisville Metro must be licensed, as well as each Donation Bin location. There is a yearly renewal fee for each company and each location.
