Lexington’s Leaf Collection Scheduled to Start on Nov. 18

lex leaf pickup 300LEXINGTON, Ky. (10/31/13) - The city’s 2013 Leaf Collection program is scheduled to start on Monday, November 18 and continue through December. There will be no leaf collection on Thursday, November 28, or Friday, November 29, because of the Thanksgiving holiday.
 
The leaf collection program is for Fayette County residents who receive city waste collection services. Those residents get a single vacuum pickup.
 
To find out when the leaf collection crews will be working in various neighborhoods, residents should visit the LFUCG website www.lexingtonky.gov/leaves for a complete listing of streets and when those areas will be serviced.
 
Citizens may also call LexCall at 311 or 859-425-2255.
 
Once residents have determined when crews will be in their neighborhoods, they need to rake their leaves into piles in the service area between the sidewalk and the street. Residents should not rake leaves into the street, since it can cause traffic hazards, can cause clog storm drains and is unsightly. Leaves raked into the street can also result in a citation and/or fine.
 
The leaves need to be raked into the service area the Sunday before the scheduled collection week. Piles should contain only leaves; other objects such as tree limbs and rocks can result in injuries to crew members or can damage the equipment.
 
Residents also have the option of using Lenny yard waste containers or the 30-gallon paper yard waste bags that are available at grocery stores and other retail locations. The bags are free to those who live in the Urban Services area, who should have received coupons for them in the mail. Residents who did not receive the coupons should call LexCall at 311 or 859-425-2255. The Lenny and the yard waste bags will be picked up on a resident’s regularly scheduled solid waste pickup day.
 
Individuals can also take up to two pick-up truck loads of leaves a month to the Haley Pike composting facility free of charge.
 
For more information, contact LexCall at 311 or 859-425-2255.
