Louisville – Something new is on its way to street corners in and around District 9. It’s an old idea with a new look and its purpose is to blend in with an area to help keep it clean and green.

“When you travel along Story, Frankfort, Brownsboro and Mellwood Avenues, you will soon see more new trash cans,” says Councilwoman Tina Ward-Pugh (D-9). “The first wave of trash cans, installed in 2008, have been well received and it’s time for more.”

The trash can is an iron container in black and at the top names the location or neighborhood where it is located. Current trash cans in use are labeled: “Crescent Hill, Clifton and Butchertown.”

The Ninth District has appropriated $14,125.00 for 17 new trash cans that will be installed next week around the Ninth District. The funding will also include two media corrals which are enclosures for newspaper and free publication stands. These trail corrals are a result of residents and businesses request to tidy up areas where numerous stands can be unattractive as well as an obstruction in the right-of-way.
