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.
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.
Waste Management will start using new collection routes on Monday, September 9, 2019. Collection days will not change.
The City has posted a request for proposals (RFP) with the hopes of having recycling back on line in late fall. Paper recycling was suspended in May.
No city waste collections will be made on Labor Day, Monday, Sept. 2. Those who normally receive curbside collections on Monday will be serviced on Wednesday, Sept. 4.
