The City is pleased to include a refuse, recycling, and composting program as a part of our utility service. In contract with Republic Services, this service is intended to lower costs for the majority of Louisville residents, reduce truck traffic and its associated pollution, street damage and noise, as well as drastically reduce recycling rates. 

More information on the City's all-city solid waste collection program can be found on our Public Works pages.

Keep in mind that the more you divert to your recycling and composting bin, the lower your trash costs can be! 

Sometimes it's hard to know what goes where - is it trash? Is it recycling or composting? For a quick guide, please view our Know Where to Throw cheat sheet.
