Limited time sale begins July 21
The Louisville Metro Public Works Department Solid Waste Management Division will offer compost bins and rain barrels for sale for a limited time beginning July 21.
The sale will feature the same Earth Machine compost bins and SYSTERN rain barrels offered at our successful truckload sale held in May. The two products offer ways to turn organic waste into valuable compost and collect rain for use in watering gardens.
Sales will end when the limited supply of bins and barrels runs out. Rain barrels are priced at $55 each and compost bins at $45 each. Sale hours will be 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday at the Solid Waste Management office, 600 Meriwether Street, whiles supplies last. Payment must be made by check or money order. No cash or credit cards will be accepted.
Each 1,000 residents who actively compost divert 600,000 pounds of organic waste from local landfills each year. One inch of rain falling on a 1,000 sq. ft. roof harvests up to 600 gallons of rainwater for use on lawns and gardens without turning on the tap.

Due to the extreme heat and the chance of severe weather this evening the Cherokee Triangle Concert for this evening (July 13)  has been cancelled.

Louisville Water has completed the repairs on the 48-inch diameter water main that broke on Thursday afternoon at Eastern Parkway and Baxter Avenue. Over the weekend, we installed a new section of pipe and completed the repairs.

Now, we need the weather to cooperate. We cannot complete the road paving until the rain moves out. At this point, the intersection will remain closed until at least Wednesday – and perhaps longer if the forecast does not improve.
