Now that the storm has passed, it’s time to clean up Lexington.
“Last Friday’s storm was reported as one of the five worst storms ever experienced by Leixngton, and the volume of debris is estimated to be quite large,” said Charles Martin, Acting Commissioner of Environmental Quality and Public Works. “This means cleaning up will be time consuming. We ask for everyone’s patience while we complete this work.”
Residents have several options, depending upon how much debris Mother Nature left behind.
For those who have a small amount of debris, please use your Lenny to dispose of limbs less than six inches in diameter. Limbs should not exceed four feet in length. If limbs will not fit in your Lenny, bundle them with a string, and place them at the curb on your regular pick-up day.
Everyone can help clean up our streets raking and sweeping debris into the Lenny.
If you have more than Lenny can handle, you are welcome to call LexCall 3-1-1(425-2255) to request a special pick-up. To make special pick-ups as efficient as possible:
- Pile up debris together before calling for pick-up. One collection trip per property is all that can be provided in the near term.
- Pile all debris along the edge of the street so that crews can collect it without entering private property.
For those who want to bring in debris, two free tree and limb disposal locations will be open from 8 a.m.-8 p.m., July 23-28:
- 1631 Old Frankfort Pike – temporary disposal location. Same location as past special collection events. Directional signage will be in place Monday morning.
- Haley Pike Landfill, 4172 Hedger Lane – normal yard waste disposal location, free disposal is limited to 8 a.m.-8 p.m., July 23-28.
