Monthly Clean-Up Information and Dates

Solid Waste Management hosts free monthly clean-ups at Lincoln Ridge Park generally the first Saturday of every month from 9:00 A.M. until 2:00 P.M. These monthly clean-ups are intended for private Kenton County residents. You may be asked to show proof of residency. 

Solid Waste Management also hosts a Fall and Spring Clean-Up. Visit the calendar to see a list of dates.

In the case of snow or ice during a clean-up time, the clean-up may be cancelled. The crews responsible for the monthly clean-up are the same crews responsible for snow removal. Please contact Public Works for updates in the case of snow or ice.

Unwanted appliances, trash, tires and other junk is accepted. Car batteries, anti-freeze, small (20lb.) propane tanks and used motor oil are accepted. Accepted materials also include fibers (mixed papers), glass, plastics and metals.

Car tires are accepted, but after four the fee will be $3.00 per tire.

Lincoln Ridge Park is located at 420 Independence Station Rd., Independence, KY 41051.

Follow the signs as you enter the park and Public Works staff will be there to direct you. Please bring help to unload as we are not always staffed to provide assistance.
