Lexington launches new program to recycle paper
On January 22, Lexington began a new program to recycle paper and six recycling bins for paper were placed throughout the City. Residents and businesses may use these bright yellow containers to recycle newspapers, office paper, paper mail, magazines and catalogs. Only paper should be recycled in these bins, but paper should not be put in the Rosies (blue carts) with other recyclables.
The paper recycling bins can be found at Masterson Station Park, Constitution Park, Veterans Park, Good Foods Co-op, Lexington Recycle Center, and Pleasant Ridge Park.
Lexington’s Recycle Center reopens
After a two-week shutdown for planned improvements, Lexington’s Recycle Center reopened in January. The improvements were part of an investment of nearly $2 million to allow the facility to sort materials more efficiently and reliably. The center accepts dry cardboard; aluminum and tin cans; plastic bottles and jugs; and glass bottles and jars.
Bluegrass Greensource will host the Inaugural Bluegrass Sustainability Summit at the UK Gatton Student Center on Tuesday, February 4 beginning at 8 am. The Sustainability Summit will empower attendees to create change in their businesses, homes, and communities.
