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.  


To succeed in this mission, citizens are strongly encouraged to manage and reduce waste whenever possible. By recycling, you can preserve green space and help reduce landfill costs, which saves you money on your monthly bill in the long run!  Lexington City Council has established a "green" commitment as part of the community goals. Join us in the mission to "go green!"
