Independence Day – Garbage and Yard Waste Delay Sunday, Jul 3 2022 

There will be no residential garbage or yard waste collection within the Louisville Metro Urban Services District (USD) for the Independence Day Holiday on Monday, July 4.

In the City of St. Matthews, waste and recycling services will be delayed one day during the rest of the week. Rumpke will return to its regular collection schedule the following week.

Other District 9 residents who rely on private haulers for garbage, recycling and yard waste collection should consult those haulers about holiday collection schedules.

The Waste Reduction Center, at 600 Meriwether Avenue, all staffed recycling centers and the Haz Bin hazardous materials facility at 7501 Grade Lane will be closed on Saturday, July 2. They will resume normal operations on Tuesday, July 5.
