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.

Medical waste is causing problems at Lexington’s Recycle Center at an increasing rate. Its presence causes serious safety issues for employees working the line. It also results in material being sent to the landfill, much of which could have been recycled.
