Please note: The monthly clean-up events have been replaced with a voucher system. Beginning in January 2019, unwanted waste can be taken directly to Bavarian Landfill (12764 McCoy Fork Rd., Walton), instead of Kenton County Public Works. The voucher system will allow the community to dispose of their waste at Bavarian Landfill, Monday – Saturday, during normal business hours. Kenton County will NO longer host monthly clean-up events.
