Effective immediately, the Landfill Voucher Program is suspended until further notice. Vouchers will not be accepted for dumping. Benson Valley will remain open during this time, but residents are encouraged not to visit the landfill unless absolutely necessary; residents will have to pay the tipping fees associated with their loads.
As for curbside trash and recycling collection – all routes are running as normal. Please be patient with the time your trash is collected. With more residents at home, each house has more waste to pick up – thus filling the trucks faster than normal. This means that CKY Hauling has to go back to their landfill to empty more often – which causes the delays. Rest assured that your trash and recycling will continue to be picked up on your scheduled day, unless otherwise noted. If your area has not been picked up by 3pm on any given day, please call Brittany Woodward (Solid Waste Coordinator) directly at 502-352-5499, with your name, street address, and which cans have not been emptied.
Yard Waste Wednesday, brush collection by the Road Department, and Spring Clean have been postponed until further notice. We truly apologize for any inconvenience, but please understand we are doing this to minimize risk to County staff and residents.
