City to collect hazardous waste Saturday

Do you need to get rid of stale gasoline that didn't get used in the lawn mower last year? What about an old bag of fertilizer?

You can dispose of them and other hazardous household waste for free Saturday at Lexington's Spring Clean Day.

Fayette County residents, but not businesses, may bring their waste to the landfill site at 1631 Old Frankfort Pike between 8:30 a.m. and 4 p.m.

Waste to be accepted includes household chemicals and materials, including cleaners, pesticides, fertilizers and fluorescent bulbs, latex paint, and used motor oil and oil filters.

Items that will not be accepted include appliances, electronic waste, pharmaceuticals, medical waste, radioactive materials, tires and ammunition.

To drop off items, take Old Frankfort Pike and turn onto Jimmie Campbell Drive. Volunteers and city government employees will direct you to one of several drop-off lanes. The materials will be unloaded for you.
