Solid Waste Management

COVID-19 Solid Waste Collection

Solid waste collection is a critical and essential job as part of the response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. You can help protect the health of the men and women who collect your trash and recycling during this vital time. The virus may survive for up to 24 hours on cardboard and two to three days on plastic*. With a few simple steps, you can protect sanitation workers by reducing the possibility they will come into contact with potentially contaminated items. Visit the Solid Waste Association of North America’s website for tips.

Reduce, Reuse, RecycleRecycling is made possible in Kenton County. Bins accepting recyclable items are located at multiple locations throughout the county.

Voucher Program

The monthly clean-up events have been replaced with a voucher system. Unwanted waste can be taken directly to Bavarian Landfill (12764 McCoy Fork Road, Walton), instead of Kenton County Public Works. The voucher system will allow the community to dispose of their waste at Bavarian Landfill, Monday - Saturday, during normal business hours. Kenton County will no longer host monthly clean-up events.
