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. 

We also host 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.

Starting September 7th, 2015 we will be accepting up to 4 vehicle tires FREE, after 4 tires it will cost $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.

Please note: Hazardous materials and paint will NOT be accepted.

If you are wondering about something you have, and whether or not we can accept it, call (859) 392- 1920.
