Instead of throwing the Christmas tree in the trash, recycle it to the Kentucky Department of Fish & Wildlife Resources. There are drop-off points across the state where old trees can be brought (Lexington: Jacobson Park). The trees will be combined to become brush reefs, which provides nesting and rearing habitat for gamefish. It also creates homes for invertebrates and smaller fishes that provide food for larger fish. Just be sure to clean all decorations off before you drop off.

 

Lexington-Fayette Urban County Government offices will be closed on each of the holidays listed above. The City’s Recycling Center, Electronics Recycling Center, and Haley Pike Waste Management Facility will be closed on those days as well as on the Saturdays of those holiday weekends (Nov. 24, Dec. 22 and Dec. 29).
