Plan ahead for disposal!
Renovating or remodeling? Don't start the demolition process until you make a plan for disposing of the resulting debris. Construction and demolition debris are prohibited by ordinance in Louisville garbage and large item collection. Collection crews will mark the material and leave a notice at the residence. So, what can you do with construction debris?
One option for disposing of construction and demolition debris is to haul it to our Waste Reduction Center on Meriwether Avenue. Fees are variable depending on volume. More information and a fee schedule are available here.
A second option for large volumes of debris is to hire a hauling company. Often, a pickup truck can get the job done in a single trip. For even larger volumes, some hauling companies will drop off a large dumpster at your home and then retrieve it after you're done filling it.
