LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) — Yard waste collected by Lexington’s Division of Waste Management during the past several months is now available as mulch.

A portion of that material will be given away to Lexington residents this Saturday at 1631 Old Frankfort Pike.

The mulch will be available for pick up from 8 a.m. until noon, or until the supply runs out. It’s available on a first-come, first-serve basis and is limited to one pickup truck load per person. There will be a self-load area for those picking up smaller amounts of mulch. It is recommended that self-loading vehicles pack buckets, bags, and a shovel to ensure a quick and easy loading process.

Officials say those interested should enter via Jimmie Campbell Drive, and look for posted signage that will direct you through the event site.
