On the second Saturday of odd months, the City of Russellville will offer, once again, a free dumpster from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. or until full at 245 West 2nd Street. The next month will be in March.

The service had temporarily stopped due to Governor Andy Beshear’s shut down for COVID-19, however, since it’s been lifted, the city has brought it back.

“This service is subject to change,” said Jason Henderson, Utilities Director for the City of Russellville. “With COVID-19 still on the rise, we will continue to listen to the governor and what he says we must do.”

While using the service, if there is more than one citizen at the dumpster, the city is asking that you maintain a social distancing of six feet or more and wear a face covering.

To use the dumpster, Russellville citizens must bring proof of identification that you live within the city limits.

According to Henderson, citizens can take trash, furniture, mattresses, or box springs to the dumpster. What you cannot bring is shingles, car batteries, tires, branches, tree limbs, appliances, or televisions. If you are unsure about an item, you can bring it and ask the staff there if it’s acceptable.

“This service is being provided to keep a lot of stuff from being put out on the street,” said Henderson. “This free dumpster offers a way for people to get rid of unwanted clutter.”
