The Office of Solid Waste Coordinator manages the County’s garbage collection service, investigates complaints on nuisance property, and investigates illegal dumping sites. SWC oversees the enforcement of the Solid Waste Management Plan and submits the county’s annual Solid Waste Report to the Division of Waste Management. I work closely with the Division of Air Quality and Division of Water within the Environmental Cabinet. Other duties include the supervision of all roadside litter pickup and community cleanups, as well as prosecuting those who dump their garbage illegally.
It is my mission to strive to educate our residents about environmental issues, assisting them with the proper disposal of waste, provide garbage collections, and work with local law enforcement to charge violators who dump trash illegally.
I am available to answer questions pertaining to the proper disposal of household materials and hazardous waste. Please call 606-375-7499.
Disposing of Storm and Flood Debris
The Kentucky Department for Environmental Protection (DEP) has specific guidelines for proper disposal of debris left in the aftermath of severe weather. DEP wants storm-affected Kentuckians to be aware of health, safety, and compliance hazards associated with debris handling and disposal. These hazards include, but are not limited to, burning of debris, asbestos removal, and mold growth. To learn more, please see the full document.
