Do you use the community compost drop-off bins? If so (or if you’d like to start!), there are some changes you should know about.

  • Locks have been added to the bins to reduce contamination. This is not meant to reduce participation — all residents are welcome and encouraged to use the bins at no cost. To get the combination to the locks, please register

Visual Communication Board at the Center Rec Playground

Guhan Yuvaraj is a member of Eagle Scout Troop #119B and completed his Eagle Scout project with Lexington Recreation and Community Programs. Guhan's project goal was to increase accessibility and inclusion and give back to his community. The board can be used by Individuals of all ability levels to communicate and engage while at the playground.

We are so thankful and proud of Guhan for his hard work planning, fundraising and installing this board - check it out next time you are visiting the Center Recreation Complex!
