There is no simple answer to the problem of illegal dumping. Keeping areas clean, well lit and unobstructed may help prevent illegal dumping but once it has occurred, the solution is a combination of government and citizen action. Metro Solid Waste Management Department will remove debris dumped on Metro owned properties, such as parks or facilities, or in situations that the public right-of-way (streets, alleys, and sidewalks) has been blocked. However, illegal dumping on private property or on easements adjoining private property become the responsibility of the property owner to remove. If you see illegal dumping in progress, please call the Louisville Metro Police Department at 502-574-7111 or 502-574-2111 to report the location and description of the persons and vehicle doing the dumping. If the dumping has already occurred, you may report it to MetroCALL at 502-574-5000 or 311 or email them. A determination will be made on whether the cleanup should be done by the Metro Government or the property owner and the appropriate agency will be notified.
