The Lexington Recycling Center is no longer accepting paper or paper products. Dispose of paper with your other household waste that is sent to the landfill. This change affects all public and private waste collection services in the Central Kentucky area. Paper recycling will resume when a qualified bulk buyer is found.
Never bag recyclables. They should be put in the recycling cart loose.
- Aluminum cans
- Steel food cans (Please rinse. Labels can stay on.)
- Plastic screw top bottles and jugs (The top should be smaller than the bottom. Don’t worry about the #.)
- Dry cardboard with packing material removed (Do NOT recycle boxboard that is made to go in the refrigerator or freezer such as soda boxes or frozen meals.)
- Glass bottles and jars: colored and clear. NOTE: Check with your service provider as some do not accept glass.
