Division of Waste Management

WM spring 2016
Proudly serving the people of Lexington

WM vision
Whether it's recyclables that we can use again, yard waste that we can turn into mulch,
or items we haul to the landfill, we are always looking for ways to keep the Bluegrass beautiful.
Our work is not just about getting rid of things, it's about Lexington's quality of life, its health,
and the look of our community.
