2023 Trash for Cash Program Registration

Daviess County Fiscal Court will start accepting applications for the “Trash for Cash” program, beginning on Tuesday, November 1.

Approved applicants will receive a minimum of $100 per centerline mile of county roads cleaned.  The total dollar amount is determined by the Energy & Environment Cabinet’s Division of Waste Management.

“Last year, Daviess County non-profits picked up more than 6.6 tons of trash along 400 miles of right-of-way,” said Judge-Executive Al Mattingly.  “They worked hard to benefit their community and earned their donations!”

Funding for the program derives from the Kentucky Environmental Remediation Fee of $1.75 per ton of waste received at the Daviess County Landfill & Transfer Station.

In order to participate in the program, your organization must be from Daviess County, Kentucky and a federally recognized 501 (c) (3) not-for-profit.  Completed applications should be returned by December 1, 2022.

For any questions, contact Solid Waste Coordinator Mike Hamilton at (270) 229–4484 or email
