LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - It's the calm after the storm and people who were impacted by the torrential rain this weekend are picking up the pieces of what's left behind. For many, it's about cleanup now and trying to figure out what to do with all of the water-soaked mess that's now on their hands.
For residents who live in the Buechel area, many of them have piled up water soaked debris on the curb. The city says they will not be doing curbside pickup. People who have damaged household items from the record rainfall this weekend can take it to the city's Waste Reduction Center at 636 Meriwether Ave. starting tomorrow.
There will be no charge for Louisville/Jefferson County residents. People will have to provide two forms of identification to verify their Jefferson County residency. They will need to present to the attendant a utility bill and a driver's license.
The free flood debris drop-off service will run from Tuesday, October 8 through Saturday, October 26 3. The hours of operation are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday.
The Waste Reduction Center is normally closed Monday and Tuesday but will be opened for citizen flood debris drop-off only. Commercial/business vehicles will have to pay the normal fees for dumping flood debris or other materials during this period.
If you hire an individual or business to remove the flood debris, you will need to accompany them to the drop-off center or provide the hauler with the same two forms of identification to present at the facility.
