Rethinking yard waste in 2021
A new year might bring new options for recycling and reusing yard waste. Lexington-Fayette Urban City Council voted unanimously to seek information on how to better recycle its yard and leaf waste, but a final vote won’t happen on the request for information until sometime in February.
In more hopeful news, curbside paper recycling could make a return by summer or fall of 2021. Curbside paper recycling was suspended in May 2019 and multiple paper drop sites were set up as an alternative in 2020, but the city realized much more paper recyclables are received through curbside paper recycling services.
