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.
Because of the Labor Day holiday no waste collections will be made on Monday, Sept. 3.
Fayette County residents will have the opportunity to safely dispose of unwanted hazardous waste at a collection event on Saturday, October 20. Lexington’s Division of Waste Management and other city agencies are coordinating the free event that will run from 8:30 a.m.
Lexington will host a Paper Shred Saturday, November 17, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at 1631 Old Frankfort Pike. Fayette County residents may bring up to five boxes or bags of material to be shredded at no cost. No wet material will be accepted.
