New recycling changes thanks to Lexington’s upgrades to the Material Recovery Facility. ♻️

Our Solid Waste department has shared the updated graphic below regarding what is now acceptable in curbside recycling carts. This includes: #1 and #2 plastic bottles, jugs, and jars; glass bottles and jars; dry cardboard and paperboard (including fridge/freezer boxes); steel and aluminum cans, canisters, and lids; paper; and food and beverage cartons (think stock/shelf stable milk/orange juice/etc.). Our Solid Waste department would like to remind residents to please not bag recycling, make sure that all contents are removed (including a quick rinse for stubborn foods), and flatten your boxes to optimize space in your cart.
