The Scott County Fiscal Court is pleased to present the annual Solid Waste report data for 2023. Using litter abatement grant funds, we collected over 3759 bags of trash and 358 tires. Working with TMMK and Scott County citizens, 88,000 lbs. of hazardous & electronic waste was collected. There was a total of 1600 tons of recyclables collected due to the various waste haulers providing curbside pickup and the drop off location at the Rumpke Transfer Station. We are thankful for the efforts of our partners and our citizens in the continued environmental improvements of Scott County.

Solid Waste Management Coordinator, Jared Hollon said, “We are very pleased with the recycling numbers from 2023. Over 1600 tons of recycled material was collected, meaning more Scott County Citizens are recycling thanks to the free community drop offs at the Rumpke Transfer Station and all the haulers offering curbside recycling. We are happy with the continued partnership with TMMK and the City of Georgetown for our annual Super Recycling Day which collected 88,000 pounds of electronic and hazardous waste. A special thank you goes to TMMK for leading this project for the community every year. While we would always like to see a reduction in litter, we are extremely thankful for the litter abatement grant which allowed us to pick up over 3700 bags of trash this year. Finally, we would like to thank the State of Kentucky for the Litter Abatement Grant, Judge Executive Joe Pat Covington and the Scott County Fiscal Court for their continued support in beautifying Scott County.”

Judge Executive Joe Pat Covington shares, “I am proud of the results that we are seeing from our strategic use of litter abatement grant funds. On behalf of the  Fiscal Court I would  like to say THANK YOU to our partners in our clean up and waste management efforts: TMMK, Rumpke, JR Brandenburg and the County Road Dept, Robert Bruin and the City of Georgetown, Swartz Contracting, and Jailer Derran Broyles and his inmate crews.”
