Lexington, Ky., leaders are considering adopting a five-year plan for waste management, which includes details on future waste and recycling goals, plans for larger recycling containers and smaller garbage receptacles and a potential pay-as-you-throw program.
The council is voting on the five-year plan soon, and then it will be sent over to the state for review.

Lexington leaders are preparing to adopt a five-year plan for waste management.
As they consider the proposal that includes details on future garbage and recycling goals, one council member would like to re-examine a “pay-as-you-toss” program.
Under a “pay as you toss-or throw” waste disposal system, users would be charged for collection based on the amount they discard. This approach is viewed by proponents as an incentive to increase recycling.
