Debris clean up

Residents can also drop off yard waste at the Haley Pike landfill, 4216 Hedger Lane. Hours are 8 a.m. – 5:30 p.m., Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. The facility is closed to the public on Wednesdays. There will be no limit on the number of loads of yard waste and storm debris a resident can take to Haley Pike this month.

If you live inside the urban service area and are unable to get your trees and yard waste to one of the drop-off sites, it can be left at the curb for collection. Stack your debris between the sidewalk and the curb. There are two ways to get it picked up: 

  • If you have city pick-up, the material you leave at the curb will be picked up as part of your normal weekly service as long as it is cut into 4-foot sections.
  • If you do not have city pick-up, or if you have debris that you cannot cut into four-foot sections, you need to call 311 and schedule a pickup. The maximum length the City can handle is 12 feet, and the material cannot exceed 16 inches in diameter.

For construction debris, Waste Services of the Bluegrass is offering Fayette County residents a 60% discount for materials dropped off at their Thoroughbred landfill located at 4179 Hedger Lane. The discounted rate is $32.13/ton. Payments can be made by cash or check only due to the facility being without power at this time. Individuals must show proof that they are a Fayette County resident to receive the storm damage discount.

Debris clean-up assistance

Emergency Management is working with volunteer agencies who MAY be able to send debris, brush, and tree-clearing workers to Lexington for a series of work days. While nothing is scheduled at this time, we want to begin the registration process to demonstrate the need.

Once registration occurs, the volunteer agency will determine if it can assign work crews to Lexington to meet the debris removal needs. This is for Fayette County residents only.

To register, call LexCall at (859) 425-2255, Monday – Friday, from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.
