Solid Waste

Boone County Solid Waste

Boone County Solid Waste oversees the County's community Big Blue Bin recycling, litter campaigns, and illegal dumps. BCSW coordinates roadside litter cleanups and community cleanups, as well as prosecuting those who dump their garbage illegally. Additionally, we strive to educate people of all ages on environmental issues, proper disposal of waste, and how to recycle our trash. To learn more about BCSW and our citizen involvement, please contact us!

Our mission is to conserve resources, protect public health and safety, and educate the community. This is made possible by our wonderful partners - public agencies, industries, businesses, schools, and - most importantly - YOU.

Waste Management Companies in Boone County

1. If you live in a subdivision or planned neighborhood, find out if there is a Homeowner's Association (HOA) for your community. Often, the HOA contracts a specific waste disposal hauler for the neighborhood(s).
2. If you do not have an HOA, contact your city. Cities usually manage waste disposal for incorporated areas. This may not be the case for unincorporated city areas.
3. If you live in an unincorporated area and not in a city, you are free to contract any local waste disposal hauler that you prefer. It is a mandatory service. For larger items, you may dispose at a local landfill or transfer station for a fee. Click here for information on our household waste voucher program.
