Illegal Dumps  

A drive through Kentucky reveals diverse scenic beauty within the hills and hollows of eastern Kentucky, the horse farms in Central Kentucky and the lakes and flatlands in western Kentucky.  Unfortunately there’s a good chance you may also see an illegal dumpsite. These blights on the Bluegrass State are ugly, dangerous and expensive to clean. Counties have the responsibility of cleaning and preventing their recurrence.. The Division of Waste Management offers assistance through cleanup grants.
