Waste Management

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.

Collection days

Unlike the previous couple of years, yard waste collections will not be suspended during winter months. Weekly yard waste collections will be made unless bad weather cancels all collections.

Recycle right

Lexington works to make recycling simple by offering a single-stream, curb-side program. Once a Waste Management employee collects recycling from your blue cart, the material is taken to the Recycling Center and sorted by equipment and employees.
