City Announces New Winter Yard Waste Collection Schedule

Lexington’s Division of Waste Management will begin a new winter collection schedule for yard waste on Monday, February 9th, that will run through Friday, March 20th. Because of significantly reduced demand, city crews will not pick up Lenny containers, yard waste bundles or yard waste bags each week. Weekly service of trash and recycling will continue as normal.

“Most households don’t have yard waste this time of year,” said Waste Management Director Tracey Thurman. “Our new 6-week winter schedule will allow our crews to be more efficient on waste and recycling routes and will save taxpayer dollars.”

The regular yard waste collection schedule will resume on Monday, March 23rd. Residents with a yard waste service request before then can call LexCall at 311 or (859) 425-2255 for pickup on an as-needed basis.

The Haley Pike Waste Management Facility will remain open throughout the winter collection period. Lexington residents can drop off yard waste at the landfill two times per month at no charge. Residents can drop off up to one pickup truckload of material per visit and must show proof of residence (such as a driver’s license). The facility is located at 4216 Hedger Lane in Lexington. Facility hours are 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday; and 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on the first Saturday of each month. The facility is closed on Wednesdays, Sundays and remaining Saturdays.
