LEXINGTON, Ky. - Spring is here and the time is right to eliminate some of the paper clutter that might be around your home from old documents, letters and other personal papers.
The city invite you to load up your vehicle and come take part in the first paper shred event of the year on Tuesday, March 26.
Lexington’s Division of Waste Management, in joint collaboration with Cintas, is offering Fayette County residents the opportunity to shred unwanted paper in a safe, secure, and easy, way and it’s free. Your papers will be shredded on the spot and you can even watch while it is being done.
The event will take place at the landfill pad at 1631 Old Frankfort Pike, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Signs will be posted directing participants to enter the site through Jimmie Campbell drive off Old Frankfort Pike.
Residents are asked not to arrive earlier than 11:30 a.m. as we will not be able to accommodate those who arrive earlier than the official start time.
Paper clips and staples are ok, but please remove large metal clips and binders. Material can include white paper, color paper, folders, magazines, envelopes and other paper products. There is a limit of five boxes or bags per person.
This is for Fayette County residents only. Please, no businesses. All the paper shredded will be recycled by Cintas into low-grade paper products, such as tissue paper.
Additional shred dates in 2013 are:
Tuesday, June 25
Tuesday, August 27 and
Saturday, November 9
Cardboard boxes will also be collected and recycled by the Lexington Recycling Center.
