The Bourbon County Commissioners agreed Tuesday to provide a free-dump day to all county residents. Residents can take their unwanted trash to the county dump for free, including old tires.
There will be no charge to haul solid waste or construction and demolition materials to the landfill from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday, May 17 and from 8 a.m. to noon Saturday, May 18.
Residents will not be restricted on the number of tires brought to the landfill.
The free service will not be provided to businesses.
If one has, say, old mattresses, unwanted garage sale leftovers, etc. this day will cost nothing but the drive to the dump to rid oneself of the items.
Friday, May 17 and Saturday, May 18 residents may take their trash to the Bourbon Transfer and Recycle Center, 2286 Noble Road, northeast of the city limits.
Normally, the cost of landfill services are $40 a ton for solid waste materials- garbage, County Commissioner Lynne Oharah said.
“For construction and demolition materials it’s $35 a ton,” Oharah said. “It’s all on a graduated scale.”
The free dump day is not for businesses but for residents only, he said.
The landfill can be reached by going north on Hwy. 69 to Native Road, then turning east until 225th, then north to Noble Road, then east to the landfill.
