Expanded Household Hazardous Waste Service Available:
There’s good news for Louisville residents looking to dispose of household hazardous materials. The Household Hazardous Materials drop-off service, or Haz Bin, is expanding from a two-days-a-week operation to five days a week. If you are unsure of how to dispose of something, use the What Goes Where search tool.

Beginning on August 14, 2018, Haz Bin will be open Tuesday through Saturday 9:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Haz Bin, located at 7501 Grade Lane, is available to all residents of Louisville/Jefferson County. It provides a safe and convenient way to dispose of unwanted household hazardous materials which are not accepted in household garbage collection or recycling centers. Learn more.

Christmas Tree Disposal
Live Christmas trees can be disposed of along with your regular pick up of  sanitation & yard waste. It is not necessary to cut the tree in any specific lengths. Place your tree at the edge of the road, or in the area where your usual trash and yard waste are picked up. Trees should be free of decorations such as lights, ornaments, or other trimmings. 

Recycle Wrapping Paper
All NON-foil wrapping paper can be easily recycled with your usual recycling items. Wrapping paper should be free of bows and trimmings.
