Wednesday, July 10, 2019 — Due to extreme heat conditions, the City of Bardstown urges customers to place their solid waste containers curbside by 6:00am. This practice will continue throughout the summer months. The safety of our waste management crew is very important to the City of Bardstown and your cooperation is appreciated.

As a reminder, the following items shall not be deposited in solid waste containers and shall not be collected by the city:

• Hazardous waste such as syringes, used needles, vials or petroleum products;
• Liquid waste such as paint, poisons, acids, explosives, caustics, infectious or biohazard waste materials;
• Tires or car parts;
• Construction and demolition waste of such size and weight that would cause damage to equipment, such as rolls of carpet or pads;
• Batteries; and
• Any burning or smoldering materials.

Contact the county’s solid waste coordinator if you have questions about the proper disposal of all waste streams listed above and those prohibited by state and local regulations at the Nelson County Landfill. Call the landfill office at (502) 348-1876.
