Our Statement of Purpose & Mission


The Recycling and Waste Collection Department maintains a high standard of guarding public health, cleanliness and environmental protection by managing the timely collection and disposal of recycling and solid waste generated by the citizens of Lexington, North Carolina.  


The City is currently phasing in new brown yard waste carts. Tuesday's collection day is the first to try them out. Carts will be picked up weekly with regular garbage collection. Click on the picture below to learn more!
