Free Junk Drop-off Disposal this Sunday
Sunday, November 1, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. – Waste Management Outer Loop Landfill, 2673 Outer Loop.

Event is open to all Jefferson County residents

Citizens are encouraged to take advantage of the city’s free bulk waste and junk drop-off event on Sunday, November 1, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Waste Management Outer Loop Landfill, 2673 Outer Loop. Now is the time to get rid of bulky items not accepted by regular garbage collection such as appliances, furniture and mattresses.

Residents are asked to separate metal items from other junk. The metal is recycled, saving valuable space in the landfill. Freon will also be properly removed from appliances. Items that will not be accepted during the drop-off event include yard waste (grass, limbs, leaves, etc.), hazardous materials, paint, tires and commercial trash.

The junk disposal day is a partnership between the Louisville Metro Division of Solid Waste Management and Waste Management of Kentucky. The event is in addition to regular bulk waste disposal available throughout the year at the Waste Reduction Center located at 636 Meriwether Avenue.

In the year round service, up to three household items are accepted free of charge during regular operating hours Tuesday – Friday, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Saturday from 8 a.m. – 3 p.m.

Materials such as oil and lead-based paints, lawn fertilizers, batteries and household chemicals may be taken the Household Hazardous Materials Collection Center, known as HAZ BIN, at 7501 Grade Lane. The center is open Wednesdays and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. There is no charge for Louisville residents for HAZ BIN services.

Highlands Community Campus – 1228 E. Breckinridge St., corner of Barrett Ave. and E. Breckinridge St.
(Parking is located in the rear of the building; handicapped parking and access is in the front of the building.)


There is a follow-up neighborhood meeting to the one held October 6th regarding the development of the former Phoenix Hill Tavern and surrounding sites. At the last meeting, the developers did not have a preliminary plan to show anything other than a rendered possible building elevation. Since that meeting, they have prepared a plan, which takes into account things that people said and advice that was received.

Accordingly, they will soon file a draft plan for pre-application review with the Division of Planning and Design Services (DPDS) that will be assigned a case number and case manager. They would like to show neighbors this updated plan, so that they might hear what thoughts, issues and perhaps even concerns you may have.

The meeting will be held on Tuesday, November 10, 2015at 7:00 p.m. at the Highlands Community Campus located at the comer of Barrett Ave. and E. Breckinridge at 1228 E. Breckinridge St. (Parking is located in the rear of the building; handicapped parking and access is in the front of the building.)

If you cannot attend the meeting but have questions or concerns, please call me, our attorney Bill Bardenwerper at 426-6688, or our land planning and engineering firm representatives Jon Henney or Amin Omidy at 627-8900.

“It’s Halloween Saturday but there will be no tricks and the treat is just sharing a hot cup of coffee. So come out and let me know what’s on your mind and if there is anything that you believe needs my attention in the district,” says Councilman Tom Owen (D-8).
These coffees are one way the Councilman reaches out to residents of the district. There is no formal agenda or sign up required. It’s just an opportunity to talk one on one with the Councilman.
“It is very informal conversation over a cup of coffee,” says Owen.
