Free trash disposal day for Lexington residents

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – According to the Division of Waste Management, Lexington is partnering with the Bluegrass Regional Transfer Station to offer Fayette County residents a free trash disposal day for non-hazardous household waste.

The event will be held Saturday, April 10, from 6 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Bluegrass Regional Transfer Station, 1505 Old Frankfort Pike.
