Giving Green to Keep Boone County Clean

The Boone County Trash for Cash Program runs from April 1st through September 30th each year. Boone County Solid Waste donates $200 to each county centerline-road (meaning both sides) mile the organization cleaned, with a maximum of 5 miles. Last year in 2020, our partner non-profit organizations picked up 328 miles of county roads and removed more than 6.58 tons of trash - that's over 13,000 pounds of garbage!

We will be accepting applications starting March 1st and ending August 31st. These applications will be reviewed and approved by Boone County Solid Waste. Please remember that this program is first come, first serve. The organization that is able to apply must be a federally-recognized 501(c)3 non-profit organization. If you are not a 501(c)3, you can apply to be one here:

This application does require you to choose your top three preferred maps. REVIEW MAPS HERE:
