HENDERSON, Ky. (WEHT) – The city of Henderson announced a change regarding the use of Henderson Transfer Station.

Officials say Henderson city and county residents will be required to show a current driver’s license with a Henderson County address starting February 1, 2023, to continue to use the Solid Waste Transfer Station for free. If their driver’s license doesn’t show a Henderson address, residents will be required to show a city utility bill or a Henderson County Water bill.

Officials clarify the purpose behind the changes is to make sure the taxpayers of Henderson City/County are not covering the cost of non-residents using the facilities free of charge.

Reports say there will be a $5 charge for residents who visit the facility with an un-tarped or unstrapped load. Officials say this will help to reduce littering along the roadways on Wolf Hills Road, on HWY 41 and the southbound bridge.

More information can be obtained by calling David Steele, Sanitation Superintendent at (270)-854-2064.
