Pick it up Lexington!

Bend over and pick up a piece of litter today.

What we leave on the ground - litter, cigarette butts-goes straight down our storm sewers polluting our streams and sources of drinking water.

Organizing a clean up

Lexington's greenspaces need our help.

Jacobson Park, Woodland Park, Liberty. All of these need our help. Organizing is easy and rewarding.

America Recycles Day was a resounding success! Our paper shredding event alone drew in over 800 vehicles, 1005 unique households, and 50,000lbs of shredded material! But, just because America Recycles Day is over doesn’t mean we get to stop recycling until next year. Nope, to Keep Lexington Beautiful we must all do our part and keep recycling.

A big thank you to all those that helped make our paper shredding event a huge success!

A huge shout out and thank you to the Papa Johns on Leestown Road and Manager Chris Evans for donating pizza for the volunteers at the America Recycles Day event this past Saturday. We couldn’t have made it through the day without their help and delicious pizza!
