After many decades of service, many pounds lost and many bodies built, Lexington is saying goodbye to the Jefferson Street Fitness Club. Bluegrass Environmental, contracted by owner Glenn Perkins, got a work out in the popular Lexington gym, by removing any and all hazardous materials, such as, asbestos, from the pipes and floors. If you were a member or visitor of the Jefferson Street Fitness Club, don’t worry, you were not exposed to any hazardous materials, such as asbestos, lead paint etc… but rather, Bluegrass Environmental Services was contracted to remove and properly dispose of asbestos containing tile and pipe insulation before the building can legally be demolished, making room for a new building and business. Asbestos abatement is required, by law, to be removed from any and all public buildings before it can be torn down, preventing anyone from being exposed or affected by the dangerous materials and the process in which this is done is regulated by and overseen by the EPA, Environmental Protection Agency. We at Bluegrass Environmental Services want to thank Mr. Perkins and the very friendly, Jeff Morgan, for letting us have one last work out in the Jefferson Fitness Club before it is demolished. The plans for the lot at which it is located, have not been revealed yet, but check back with the environmental experts here at BES, for an update on what’s coming and for all your environmental safety concerns. We’ve included some pictures so you can have one last look at the beloved Jefferson Fitness Club and salute the owner and staff for all their years of service and dedication to keeping Lexington fit and for also being environmentally aware and responsible.
