New Louisville Recycling Locations Announced

Friday August 26, 2005

Expands Service for Suburban Residents

Mayor Jerry Abramson today announced the expansion of recycling opportunities for Louisville residents living in the suburban service district. Two new drop-off recycling centers located at the Fern Creek Firehouse at 7700 Routt Road and the Middletown Firehouse at 108 Urton Lane will open beginning Monday, August 29. This brings the number of drop-off centers in the community to 16.

“Recycling saves landfill space, energy and natural resources – all of which helps our community preserve its environment,” Abramson said. “I’m pleased that, through the efforts of our Solid Waste Management and Services Department, we’re able to enhance our recycling opportunities in the community by adding these two locations and making it convenient to recycle no matter residents live.”
The new locations are unattended. Other unattended drop-off centers include:
