If your recyclables are piling up, don’t bother wheeling them out to the curb this week.

LEXINGTON, Ky. - A group of local business professionals wants to see Lexington become a “zero waste” city. As part of community project through Leadership Lexington, the group is targeting ways residents and businesses can increase recycling and compost efforts.

“We really want to encourage the city and people who live in the city to change their mindset so that they’re actually reusing and reducing their waste and then throwing away and recycling material in their homes and in their businesses,” says group member Jennifer Cave.
