Dear Neighbor,

Please take note of the upcoming set out weekend (Next weekend, Sept 30- Oct 3) for residents of the Urban Services District (Old City of Louisville). Public Works has been very stringent on their rules for these collections in the past few years. 

There are also several sustainable ways to celebrate fall - including getting involved in tree planting, learning about solar and electric vehicle, and helping our community support smart development and community practices.

Enjoy the weekend,


Brent T. Ackerson
26th District Councilman

For scheduling reasons, the 26th District Office will be closed until 9:30am on Tuesday Sept. 27th. Metro Council has fall break the week of Sept 26th, but we will respond to emails and calls during that week beginning on our return Tuesday morning. Thank you for your understanding.

Several neighbors call each week asking about Junk Collection, or Large Item Set Out weekends for residents of the Urban Services District (the old City of Louisville)

The rules on set out times and what can be set out are strictly enforced. Public Works often documents their progress as they work their routes and note if nothing has been set out at particular addresses. 

Here are some items that are NOT collected:

  • Hazardous materials (Motor oil, batteries, paint, gasoline, antifreeze, light bulbs, or chemicals)
  • Items containing coolant (refrigerators, air conditioners)
  • Electronics

Oct 1 | Louisville Solar Tour + EV Experience


The Kentucky Solar Energy Society (KYSES) is thrilled to be back with the ‘in-person’ 2022 Louisville Solar Tour on Saturday, October 1. The tour will begin at 9:30 a.m. at Sullivan University College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences at 2100 Gardiner Lane. If you are thinking of going solar, adding battery storage to your home, buying an electric vehicle (EV), or installing a home car charger, the event is designed to help you make all the right decisions. Nothing beats talking to those homeowners who have already made the move and will give you unbiased and honest answers on how the process went, and the tips and tricks they picked up on the way.

KYSES has also partnered with Evolve KY, the state's premier EV non-profit and advocacy group to provide chauffeured rides in all the latest EV's to the carefully selected solar show homes! Teslas of all models, Rivians, VW, Kia, Ford, Nissan, Chevy…. take your pick! Click here to Learn more and sign up for free.
