Energy and Environment Cabinet

To Protect and Enhance Kentucky’s Environment


  • Percentage of collection for the county as a whole? For each city?

  • Look at a new way to collect municipal solid waste? Private hauler to permit hauler? Franchise the area collection? Continue municipally owned and operated system?

  • Universal collection to mandatory door-to-door?


  • Need ten year capacity assurance for disposal of waste.

  • Review tons disposed from county year to year. Has it increased? Increase due to higher collection percentage?

  • Reduce amount of waste disposed in landfills to maintain or cut dollars spent by consumer.

Recycling reduction

  • What markets are available for the recyclables in my area?

  • Consider siting of recycling center.

  • Take the time to visit neighboring counties.

  • The Ky. Pride Fund has grants to build recycling infrastructure.

  • Work with schools and local and state offices to increase recycling tonnage.

Open dumps and litter

  • Encourage reporting of illegal open dumps.

  • Meet with advisory committee to discuss litter issues of prevention and education.

  • Economic development is tied into cleanliness of area.

  • Take advantage of the Ky. Pride Fund - grants are available for illegal open dump & litter cleanup, abatement and education.


  • Counties use a siting ordinance or siting procedures in place of planning and zoning.

  • May include permission from governing body prior to the establishment of a solid waste management facility – can include anything from a contained landfill to a transfer station to a recycling center to a < or > 1 acre Construction Demolition Debris landfill.

  • KRS 68.178 allows a governing body to assess a fee to be paid to the county.


  • Meet with advisory committee to review ordinance to ensure each component of the plan has a procedure to follow as necessary to retain/encourage compliance.

  • A tiered approach to enforcement is preferable.

  • Encourage a community approach – talk with various clubs, police, neighborhood watch groups to plan a positive approach.

Public participation education


  • Your fellow solid waste coordinator.

  • Jessica Jones and Chris Craig.


Financial mechinisims

  • All grants should be a line item in the governing body budget.

  • Track all in-kind, grant fund, and non-grant funded items to determine true cost of operating program.

  • Buy a scale if you operate a transfer station, recycling center, landfill, etc.

  • Operate all programs as a business – not like a business.
