Voucher Program

The monthly clean-up events have been modified to a Voucher System Program.

The monthly clean-up events have been replaced with a voucher system. Unwanted waste can be taken directly to Bavarian Landfill (859-485-4416), instead of Kenton County Public Works. The voucher system will allow the community to dispose of their waste at Bavarian Landfill, Monday through Saturday, during normal business hours. Kenton County will no longer host monthly clean-up events.

Obtaining a Voucher

Vouchers are available for Kenton County residents and can be obtained online or in person at Kenton County Public Works.


  1. Create an account with CivicRec. Once approved to participate in the program, the CivicRec catalog is where you will go to obtain the voucher.
  2. Complete a Trash Voucher Program Application. The Public Works team will review the application for eligibility to participate in the program.
    1. A paid trash bill is required for submission of this application. This trash bill can be paid in varying time periods (monthly, quarterly, yearly, etc.) depending upon where you live. Sometimes the trash bill is part of the city taxes.
  3. Once the application is reviewed and approved, the Public Works team will contact you informing you that your account in the CivicRec platform has been updated with the appropriate credentials to obtain a voucher.
    1. The credentials associated with the account are valid through the paid trash period. You will need to reapply after that period ends.
  4. You will then be able to visit the catalog to obtain a voucher. You will need to be logged into your account to add it to your cart and complete the transaction (there is no cost to the voucher program).
  5. The voucher may then be taken to Bavarian Waste during their normal business hours. You may either print the voucher or use a mobile device to display it.
