Trash for Cash
The Boone County Trash for Cash Program runs from April 1st through September 30th each year. Boone County Solid Waste donates $100 to each county centerline-road (meaning both sides) mile the organization cleaned, with a maximum of 5 miles. Last year in 2021, our partner non-profit organizations picked up 340 miles of county roads and removed more than 11.76 tons of trash - that's over 23,000 pounds of garbage!
We will be accepting applications starting March 1st and ending August 31st. These applications will be reviewed and approved by Boone County Solid Waste. Please remember that this program is first come, first serve. The organization that is able to apply must be a federally-recognized 501(c)3 non-profit organization and have your organization's W-9 ready to send. If you are not a 501(c)3, you can apply to be one here: https://www.irs.gov/charities-non-profits/application-for-recognition-of-exemption.
Please review all supporting documents before applying and your cleanup. These documents will be given to you as a hardcopy in your Trash for Cash bin on pickup day.
