There will be no charge for citizens of Louisville/Jefferson County. However, residents 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 flood debris drop-off service will run from Tues., Oct. 8 through Sat., Oct. 26.

The hours of operation for the free drop off are Mon. - Sat. 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
