Flooding in HendersonHENDERSON, Ky. (3/9/18) — The Henderson County Road Department will assist Henderson County property owners impacted by recent flooding beginning Monday. The county reported it will be accepting home furnishings, flooring, appliances, drywall and other water-damaged debris at two drop-off points in the Reed-Beals area.
Dumpsters will be set up at Cagey’s Store in Beals and near the intersection of U.S. 60-E. and St. Augustine Church Road in Reed. Local residents will be able to bring their flood-damaged home materials at no charge, county officials said.

Road department personnel will be on hand to help screen debris brought to the dumpsters 8 a.m.-3 p.m on weekdays. 

Henderson County Officials said the Dumpsters are only for home debris ruined by the flood. Normal household garbage or items such as old tires or paint will not be accepted.  
According to a news release, Dumpsters will be available at both locations until they are filled. The county will begin to alternate days the dumpsters are open (for example, at Cagey’s one day and in Reed the next). 

Henderson County Judge Executive Brad Schneider said the Dumpsters will be available for use through March and that a decision on whether to extend the service into April will be made at a later date. 

Officials are asking residents not to burn flood-damaged, home debris, which could violate state air quality regulations.      
For more information, contact the Henderson County Road Department at (270) 826-8843 between 8 a.m.-3:30 p.m. Monday-Friday.
