With the General Election over in Lexington, there are quite a few unwanted political yard signs. How can you safely dispose of them?

Don’t trash them, re-purpose them.

Both signs and stakes are not recyclable, so please do not put in blue carts. The signs can be reused by local businesses for art projects and the city can re-purpose the wire frames for Safe Streets yard signs.

Collection bins are at the following locations through Sunday, November 17:

  • Broomwagon Coffee + Bikes (800 North Limestone)
  • Gainesway Community Center (3460 Campus Way)
  • Good Foods Co-Op (455-D Southland Drive)
  • Government Center (200 East Main Street)
  • Kenwick Community Center (313 Owsley Avenue)
  • Lexington Senior Center (195 Life Lane)
  • Pivot Brewing (1400 Delaware Avenue)
  • West Sixth Brewing (501 West Sixth Street)

If you have a large number of signs, you can contact livegreen@lexingtonky.gov to arrange a drop-off at the Government Center.
