Metro Yard Waste Regulations



Yard waste collection outside theLouisville Metro Urban Service District


Effective January 1, 2015, yard waste set out for collection must be in one of the following containers: reusable bin, paper yard waste bag or compostable plastic bag meeting ASTM D6400 standards.

So what is the best way to handle your yard waste? Louisville's Waste Management District recommends citizens use the following methods for handling yard waste, in order of preference:

• Most Recommended: For a healthier, greener lawn utilize leaf mulch, grass clippings and trimmings by returning them to the turf system.

• Second Best: Place the yard waste in 20-40 gallon reusable containers with handles (old style trash cans) to reduce the need for continual purchase of single-use bags.(Each household is allowed upto to wheeled  trash contrainers for free. You can contact Industrial Disposal for details.)

• Next Best: Place yard waste in paper bags designed for yard waste collection

• Still Works: Place yard waste in compostable plastic bags that meet ASTM D6400 standards

• For large amounts: Reduce the volume by using a lawn mower or leaf shredder before putting them in a container or utilize seasonal drop-off centers for yard waste materials.

History of Woodlawn Park

HISTORY OF WOODLAWN PARK

Once our area thundered with the sounds of horses' hooves. Crowds of people called their favorite horses on to victory. Our city of Woodlawn Park was the site of the world famous Woodlawn Race Course!

The earliest history of the area is rather vague. A Jefferson County land grants map shows the Woodlawn Park included in a grant to Col. William Christian, I.W. Blagg and William Bradley dated June 7, 1774; also, however, it has been said to have been given to a Col. Grey by the king of England. Col. Grey is said to have lost it by gambling.

The property later was purchased by several gentlemen, who started Woodlawn Race Course and the Woodlawn Association in 1858. They subscribed for a total of 50,000 in stock. The first Woodlawn races were held in the fall of 1859.
