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.
Residents and businesses with curbside city waste collection will be impacted by the holidays listed below. Put your carts out after 4 p.m. the day before service in order to receive service those holiday weeks.
Starting Tuesday, December 27, Lexington will collect natural trees for mulching. Curbside tree pickup will be offered through Friday, January 27. All lights, ornaments and other decorations must be removed before setting your tree out.
Yard waste collected by Lexington’s Division of Waste Management during the past several months is now mulch. A portion of that material will be given away for free to Lexington residents on Saturday, September 17 at 1631 Old Frankfort Pike.
