DEMOLITION REMOVAL AT LIMITED AVAILABILITY UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE

MADISONVILLE, Ky. – As a result of the December 10, 2021 tornado, we are now experiencing more sanitation demands and fewer locations to which our residents may discard debris. At this time, all demolition materials will be discarded only at the White Plains Regional Landfill, 419 Claude Young Road in White Plains.

Please be patient as we coordinate more facilities in which to discard demolition debris.
