Lexington's Division of Waste Management will resume regular yard waste collection on Monday, with assistance from the Division of Streets and Roads, the city announced.
The city said Wednesday that it was suspending yard waste collection for the rest of the week because of illness among collection workers.
In addition to resuming pickup, the city will offer a public drop-off location for bagged and bundled yard waste, as well as natural Christmas trees, at the old landfill site at 1631 Old Frankfort Pike. The site will be open to all Fayette County residents from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday, until Jan. 16.
Until Jan. 16, yard waste may also be dropped off at the Haley Pike Waste Management facility. The facility, which is open from 8 am. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, is located at 4216 Hedger Lane.
Citizens are asked to remove all lights, ornaments, stands and decorations before placing a tree at the curb or before to bringing it to the drop-off location on Old Frankfort Pike.
Collection of natural trees will run through Jan. 16.
