Storm Debris Drop Off Sites Open this weekend

Public Works crews have cleared some of the storm debris from sites used for storm debris dropoff last month, and will reopen those locations for more debris collection this weekend.

Storm Debris Dropoff Sites:

o Hubbards Lane Public Works Facility, 595 Hubbards Lane

o Meriwether Public Works Facility, 600 Meriwether Ave.

o Behind the Southwest Government Center, 7219 Dixie Highway(enter off St. Andrews Church Rd., east of Dixie Highway and just west of the railroad tracks)

The dropoff sites are open to private citizens only; no businesses or contractors. Building materials, such as shingles, fencing and siding, will not be accepted.

The three dropoff sites will be staffed to help direct traffic. Residents wishing to dispose of debris after Sunday should use the Waste Reduction Center at 636 Meriwether.

No decisions have been made regarding whether the dropoff sites will be open again later.

Multiple agencies, including Public Works, Solid Waste Management, Metro Parks, MSD, and the Louisville Water Company, have dedicated crews of 3-5 workers each to curbside debris pickup. Currently, 24 crews are working throughout the city; crews are working 10-hour shifts, six days a week, with the option of working on Sundays.
