HENDERSON, Ky. (WEHT)- Beginning on Wednesday, November 1, the Daviess County Solid Waste Department will start accepting applications for the 2024 Trash for Cash program.

The total amount is determined by the Division of Waste Management in the Kentucky Energy & Environment Cabinet. In order to participate in the program, the organization must be from Daviess County, Kentucky, and a federally recognized 501(c)(3) not-for-profit.
