“These events make it easier for residents to do their part to protect and improve the quality of life where they live, eliminate illegal dumping, and divert from our landfills,” said Sheila Fields, Covington’s Solid Waste and Recycling coordinator. “This is especially helpful for those hard-to-recycle items that are not accepted in Covington’s curbside program.”

Fields said the two Covington-based events are new this year, courtesy of the City’s expanded contract with Rumpke Waste & Recycling, including its new management and ownership of the transfer station.
“Rumpke is proving to be a good partner, and we look forward to holding many such events for Covington residents with the goal of keeping our neighborhoods clean,” she said.

Details on those events will be released later.
