Lexington City Council
is pleased to move forward in implementing progress toward City Council Goal of “green
" initiatives by encouraging citizens to increase recycling through a Curbside Rollout Recycling Program.
CONGRATULATIONS CITIZENS – The new bi-weekly automated rollout recycling program is a success! Thursday’s and Friday's collection routes are fully implemented and residents are actively participating in the program. Landfill tipping fees are decreasing and recycling totals are continuing to increase as citizens are realizing the value of recycling and saving valuable landfill space. The large 95-gallon recycling rollouts are convenient and easy to use. Every dollar saved in tipping fees can be utilized for expanding the rollout recycling program to the remaining collection routes allowing other residents to participate in this exciting new program. In early 2017, Wednesday's collection route will be added to the bi-weekly automated rollout recycling program!
The following link outlines the rollout recycling guidelines:
