City to open flooding debris drop off sites

Posted By Charles Gazaway - email

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - If you have piles of water-logged stuff from Tuesday's flash flooding, you can get rid of it for free starting Friday. Louisville Metro Government has set up three sites for free drop off for people who live in the areas that suffered the heaviest rainfall. The sites will be at the following locations:

  • Morris-Forman Treatment Plant, 4522 Algonquin Parkway
  • Papa John's Cardinal Stadium, Green Parking Lot, Floyd Street just south of Central Ave.
  • Old Phillip Morris Plant parking lot, 18th and Broadway

Free drop runs daily from Noon to 8 p.m. through Sunday, August 16.

Here is a list of things you can drop off:

  • Furniture
  • Carpeting
  • Clothing
  • Appliances (there will be a special dumpster for appliances with Freon, such as refrigerators and air conditioning units)

You cannot dispose of yard waste and tree limbs, construction materials, tires and raw garbage.

If you don't have the means to haul your ruined items to a drop off location, Mayor Jerry Abramson says there is help available from Metro United Way. "Fortunately, once again, Metro United Way is going to be our conduit that is going to connect people who want to volunteer their time, and those with pickup trucks, and people who need assistance."

To read more about the free drop off sites and how you can get help from Metro Untied Way, just click the highlighted link: Debris Drop Off.
