The Landfill Voucher Program portal is reopened as of 4/27/2020. Republic Services and Benson Valley Landfill will accept vouchers starting Saturday, 5/2/2020. Free dumping is only allowed with a voucher. Residents must follow all rules associated with the program, as well as CDC guidelines for mask wearing and social distancing.
As for County curbside trash and recycling collection (red carts) – the Lexington Recycling Facility is closed, so anything placed in your recycle cart will be landfilled until further notice. Otherwise, there are no delays or changes to curbside collection. Please be patient with the time your trash is collected. With more residents at home, each house has more waste to pick up – thus filling the trucks faster than normal. This means that CKY Hauling has to go back to their landfill to empty more often – which causes the delays. Rest assured that your trash and recycling will continue to be picked up on your scheduled day, unless otherwise noted. If your area has not been picked up by 3pm on any given day, please call Brittany Woodward (Solid Waste Coordinator) directly at 502-352-5499, with your name, street address, and which cans have not been emptied. If you have black trash and recycle carts, please call City Public Works at 502-875-8527.
The Road Department is currently operating it’s limb collection service on Thursdays and Fridays – you must call the Road Department at 502-875-8760 to get on the list for pickup. Guidelines for this program include: piles must be less than 3 feet high and 10 feet long, all limbs must be less than 8 inches in diameter, and we do not collect root balls/stumps/or tree trunks with this program.
Yard Waste Wednesday, Household Hazardous Waste Collection, and Spring Clean have been postponed until further notice. We truly apologize for any inconvenience, but please understand we are doing this to minimize risk to County staff and residents.
