Campbell County, Kentucky

Welcome to the official website of Campbell County, Kentucky!

Program Information

Campbell County’s Trash for Cash Program is a fundraising opportunity for non-profit organizations based in Campbell County to pick up roadside litter. 

Applications are accepted beginning March 15th (or following Monday if March 15th falls on a weekend or holiday) until all available slots are filled.  Interested groups are assigned a program slot on a first come, first serve-basis.  Groups can perform a roadside litter clean-up of no more than 5 miles (includes both sides of the road) with a reimbursement rate of $200 per mile.

Groups that share the same tax EIN (Employer Identification Number) are limited on the amount of clean-ups allowable per calendar year.  The first three groups to apply that share an EIN may be awarded a slot (if available), while any subsequent groups will be placed on a waitlist.  Example: "School A" baseball team, "School A" basketball team, and “School A” soccer team can each be eligible for a program slot, but if “School A” academic team also applies, it will be placed on a waitlist.  It is up to the discretion of the Solid Waste Coordinator to pull groups from the waitlist, taking factors into consideration such as school district or organization size, number of participants involved, and available funding.

Upon acceptance into the program, the Solid Waste Coordinator will assign your group a clean-up date by April 15th (or following Monday if April 15th falls on a weekend or holiday) and route based on the preferences listed in your application.  Group leaders are responsible for collecting liability waivers from each participant prior to the group's assigned event date.

Below are maps and a directory of current routes used in the Trash for Cash Program.
