Voucher Program

Changes for the 2019 Clean-Up Events

The Monthly Clean-Up Events Have Been Modified to a Voucher System Program

The monthly clean-up events have been replaced with a voucher system. Beginning in January 2019, unwanted waste can be taken direct­ly to Bavarian Landfill (12764 McCoy Fork Rd., Walton), instead of Kenton County Public Works. The voucher system will allow the community to dispose of their waste at Bavarian Landfill, Monday - Saturday, during normal business hours. Kenton County will NO longer host monthly clean-up events. 

  • 200 vouchers per month will be available on a first come, first serve basis. Vouchers will not be issued during months that have a clean-up event scheduled (Spring & Fall Clean-up Events).
  • Kenton County Residents MUST provide a proper Kenton County ID with address that matches a current paid trash bill. Vouchers are not intended for businesses.
  • Vouchers can be picked up at the Kenton County Public Works office (420 Independence Station Rd.) during normal business hours.
  • Limit (1) voucher per Kenton County residential address per month; not to exceed (10) per year.
  • Kenton County will still have the normal appliance pickup and drop-off options for metals, oil, and antifreeze, available to the public during normal business hours.

Kenton County Code of Ordinances:

Chapter 50.031 Collection of Solid Waste, including bulky waste, from all generators, including residential, agricultural, commercial, institutional and industrial is mandatory.

Chapter 50.066 Open dumping of solid waste, including bulky waste, on all lands (that is, roadsides, hollows, river, streams, lakes, and the like) by any persons is prohibited.

Dropping items off at Public Works when there is not a Clean-up Event scheduled, is wrong and considered illegal dumping. If caught, you could be prosecuted and fined. Please do not do this.
