Giving Green to Keep Boone County Green

Our Trash for Cash program will return April 1st, we donated $100 to each non-profit group for every mile of roadway they cleaned . All in all, Boone County nonprofits picked up more than 600 miles of littered right–of–way and removed more than 22.5 tons of trash from our land–that’s more than 45,000 pounds of garbage! They definitely worked hard to earn their donations!
For those who hope to participate in Trash for Cash, call Boone County Solid Waste at (859) 334–3151 or email Marcia Vanover at for more information.  You can download the application.  

We are currently unable to schedule any additional Trash for Cash events.  However, we anticipate being able to open it up to additional groups; it will be based on funding.  Please submit your application as there is a waiting list, and your organization will be added in the order it was received.

In order to participate in this program your group must be from Boone County and a Federally Recognized Non-Profit Group.
