Lexington County has sent out more than 20,000 notices to homeowners about revisions in curbside trash collection. The changes affect residential trash collection in unincorporated areas of the county.
The first change starts July 15 with delivery of new 95-gallon recycling containers, much larger than bins now being used.
Collection of recyclable materials will be reduced to every two weeks instead of weekly.
Some homeowners will be notified about new pickup days.
All wastes will be collected on the same day instead of different days, officials say. Pickup of trash other than recycling will continue once a week.
Lexington County approves funds for road improvements
At its June 25 meeting, Lexington County Council approved $1.5 million for road paving and resurfacing, most of which will go toward paving of A.C. Bouknight Road in Gilbert. According to published reports, Lexington County officials plan to allot about $350,000 of the C-fund money for the resurfacing of state roads in the county.
The council also approved approximately $45,000 for improvements to the Lexington County Airport in Pelion.
