Important Phone Numbers

911 - Emergencies

Obvious, right? We thought so, but you never know.

311 - LexCall 

This is the most versatile call-in number for the city of Lexington. They can help with Trash, Recycling, Potholes, Street Signs, Yard Waste, Sewers and more. If you've got bulky trash items, give them a call--they might be able to pick it up! For the full breakdown check out their website.

811 - Call Before You Dig

Calling this number is an easy and FREE way to prevent problems before they start. If you're doing landscaping or digging for any other reason, save yourself the headache of a busted utility line and call this FREE service. They will come out, flag your lines and you can dig with a clear conscience.

Reporting crimes

Anyone with information about a suspect or an incident can text LEXPD in the body of the message followed by the tip and send it to CRIMES (274637). See their website for more details. You can also anonymously report crimes to Bluegrass Crime Stoppers at 859-253-2020


Utilities, etc.

Waste, Recycling, Yardwaste

This one's a little confusing, some parts of the neighborhood have city waste collection, while others have private services.
