LiveGreenLexington Partners will be expected to commit to recycle, improve water quality or implement energy efficiency measures. Partners should also train and encourage employees and/or residents to participate and will, with help from Bluegrass Greensource, follow through on commitments.


   Recycling & Waste Reduction Partner

Recycling PartnerRecycling is a free service to any business or apartment complex in Lexington-Fayette County's urban services area. Help reduce your waste by starting or expanding a recycling program. Bluegrass Greensource can help your business or apartment complex get recycling bins, find locations for recycling bins and can educate your staff and residents about what is and isn't recyclable. Bluegrass Greensource can also help your business or apartment complex complete a waste audit to see how much of your trash could be recycled.

   Water Partner

Water PartnerBusinesses and apartment complexes can have a tremendous effect on water quality in Lexington. Many of the problems surrounding water quality are due to stormwater runoff coming from rain and snow melt that washes pollutants and litter into our creeks and streams. Other problems arise from materials being disposed of improperly. Bluegrass Greensource can help you learn more about water conservation, the FOG (fats, oil and grease) Program, sanitary sewer maintenance, storm drain stenciling, rain barrels and gardens and other ways to improve Lexington's water quality.

   Energy Partner

Energy PartnerCommercial and industrial buildings account for 61% of the energy used in Kentucky every year, and residential buildings account for 30%. However, there are many ways that businesses and multi-family dwellings can make a difference in easy ways such as changing your light bulbs and using a power strip. By increasing energy efficiency, businesses and residents can reduce their monthly energy bills and make a positive environmental impact by reducing energy usage. Bluegrass Greensource can help set up energy efficiency programs at your business or apartment complex, organize an energy audit and help begin early benchmarking programs.

   Composting Partner 
Composting Partner 

In the United States, only 4% of food waste is diverted from landfills through composting, but Live Green Lexington Composting Partners can change that. Bluegrass Greensource can help your business or apartment complex keep food waste out of landfills through education, waste reduction and on-site composting.
