Soil testing at Champions Park shows landfill cap not disturbed; Edith Avenue reopened Friday, Oct 19 2018 

Edith Avenue has been reopened after state and city testing confirmed that a clay cap installed as a protective layer over the old Edith Avenue landfill at Champions Park has not been disturbed.

The state Energy and Environment Cabinet and an environmental firm hired by the city took samples from the area earlier this month, which were then sent to two separate independent labs to verify there is no contamination and the site continues to be safe.

A contractor soon will begin smoothing out ruts and tracks left on the park grounds after heavy rain and flooding caused cancellation of the annual Bourbon & Beyond and Louder Than Life festivals in September. The gates around that portion will remain up while that work is being done.

New Way to Report Illegal Dumpers Tuesday, Aug 21 2018 

We all know that illegal dumping–putting waste on property that is not licensed as a disposal facility–is an eyesore that is expensive to clean up, diminishes quality of life, discourages economic development and even sends plastic debris into our waterways.

That’s why people caught dumping along our city’s alleys, sidewalks, fields, roadsides, and recycling bins are subject to fines and impoundment of any vehicle used in the dumping. That’s where citizens can help with the problem. If you witness illegal dumping while it’s happening, report it.

Metro has developed a new online form you can use to tell us where it happened, describe the vehicle(s) involved, preferably with license plate number(s), and even upload pictures. Of course you can always call Metro Call 311 or 574-5000. For more information about illegal dumping, including a link to the reporting form, visit our illegal dumping webpage.
