The city is having its free, semi-annual bulk waste and junk drop-off collection day to help residents with spring cleanups in their homes and neighborhoods.
Louisville residents may drop off bulk waste items April 17 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Waste Management Outer Loop Landfill, 2673 Outer Loop. More than 640 tons of junk were collected during this free service last year, with an additional 26 tons of recycled material.
Unacceptable items include yard waste (grass, limbs, leaves, etc.), hazardous materials, paint, tires and commercial trash.
Materials such as oil and lead-based paints, lawn fertilizers, batteries and household chemicals may be taken to Louisville Metro’s Household Hazardous Materials Collection Center, known as HAZ BIN, located at 7501 Grade Lane. The center is open on Wednesdays and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
There is no charge for Louisville residents utilizing the HAZ BIN services.
The junk disposal day is a partnership between the Louisville Metro Division of Solid Waste Management and Waste Management of Kentucky.
