HENDERSON, Ky. – Starting Monday, Nov. 5, the City of Henderson Landfill will have the capability of accepting payment by credit card and debit card in addition to cash and check.
When a new fee schedule was instituted one year ago, the landfill was only able to accept cash and check. Proof of residency is still required. There is no extra charge for a credit or debit card transaction.
Fees are –
Transfer Station/Convenience Center (regular household trash):
CD&D (construction debris, limbs, dirt, concrete and “top of the hill” material):
