Division of Solid Waste Management

Solid Waste?

We are the Division of Public Works that handles recycling, garbage, litter, and illegal dumping. We organize roadside litter cleanups, community cleanups (such as Great American Cleanup and River Sweep), prosecute people who dump their garbage illegally, educate folks about environmental issues, help residents dispose of wastes properly and tell little kids how to recycle. We also host several citizen involvement programs such as our Pride Posse, Litterbug Spotters and Trash for Cash roadside cleanups.


Abitibi is no longer is business. But your school or business can still participate in a FREE recycling program through the Boone County Public Works, Solid Waste Division.

Contact the Boone County Solid Waste Division at 859-334-3629 Kelly Chapman to set up a mixed recycling program where you recycle not only paper, but cardboard, water bottles, milk jugs, and aluminum and steel cans. We are more than happy to help you expand your recycling program by supplying you with recycling receptacles and helping you set up an easy recycling plan.

Rumpke has purchased the Abitibi dumpsters, so if yours is overflowing, please email Ann Powers or call 513-200-6735.
