Trash Amnesty Week Begins Monday, October 24

COVINGTON, KY - The City of Covington has scheduled its fourth trash amnesty week of the year beginning Monday, October 24, 2016.

During trash amnesty week, residents can place up to three large items and ten 30-gallon bags of trash at the curb without using a green sticker. This trash will be collected during regularly scheduled trash days.

Residents should still prepare large items for collection. For example, mattresses, box springs and upholstered furniture should be wrapped and sealed in plastic and Freon should be properly removed from appliances.

Leaves and grass clippings should be contained in either paper or plastic bags. Branches should be bundled and tied in stacks no larger than 2 feet wide and 4 feet long. Each bundle counts as one large item. Bagged yard waste counts toward the ten bag limit.
