LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) – Now that the flood waters are finally receding, attention turns now to the cleanup effort. Metro Public Works announced a series of services that are available for disposing of flood-damaged household items.

Jefferson County residents may drop off flood debris at any of seven sites Thursday, March 1 through Saturday, March 24. Six of the locations will be open Thursday through Saturday, 1 p.m. to 8 p.m. The Waste Reduction Center will be open for debris drop-off Monday through Saturday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

This service is free and available for residents of Jefferson County only. It does not include commercial haulers. No yard waste or construction debris other than flood-damaged drywall and insulation will be accepted. Electronics must be separated from other items.

To qualify for the free drop-off residents must present two forms of identification verifying Louisville residency.
