Mayor again extends hours at storm debris collection site

Mayor Linda Gorton said today the city will continue to take tree and yard debris at the Old Frankfort Pike Landfill through the weekend, March 18 – 19.

There will be no charge to take debris to the landfill at 1631 Old Frankfort Pike. Hours of operation are 8 a.m. – 4 p.m. each day. The entrance is off Old Frankfort Pike.

Although March 19 is the final day for the Old Frankfort Pike site, residents can drop off yard waste debris for free at the city’s Haley Pike landfill, 4216 Hedger Lane, through the end of the month. Haley Pike is open from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.

There will be no limit on the number of loads of yard waste and storm debris a resident can take to either site. The city will recycle the debris and turn it into mulch. A Fayette County driver’s license or other proof of residence in Fayette County is required.

If you live inside the urban service area and are unable to get your tree and yard waste to one of the drop-off sites, it can be left at the curb for collection. Stack your debris between the sidewalk and the curb.

There are two ways to get it picked up: 

  • If you have city pick-up, the material you leave at the curb will be picked up as part of your normal weekly service as long as it is cut in 4-foot sections.
  • If you do not have city pick-up, or if you have debris that you cannot cut into four-foot sections, you need to call 3-1-1 and schedule a pick up. The maximum length the City can handle is 12 feet, and material cannot exceed 16 inches in diameter.
