Kansas City Cleanup after the Storm

Kansas City had quite the storm last week. With many areas without power for days the city has added extra services to help people with the cleanup.


According to,

  • The City is offering curbside leaf and brush collection for storm debris starting the week of the 24th by appointment.
  • Residents may begin making appointments on July 17, and need to be made by July 23 through the myKCMO app or by calling calling 311.
  • Leaf & Brush drop off sites are open and free for debris. (For Kansas City, Missouri residents only, I.D. required).
  • Parks & Recreation and Public Works crews are out all day Sunday and throughout the week continuing to clean up debris in public areas.
  • Trash amnesty will be extended for a 10-bag trash limit from July 17 to 21 on the resident’s regular trash service day.

Please help our crews expedite cleanup by following these guidelines:

  • Residents need to cut down any trees and branches before placing on the curb for collection. Please cut large pieces to no more than 4 ft long.
  • Large pieces do not need to be bundled for collection, but bundles are helpful for our crews.
  • If piling debris, please pile parallel to the curb for collection.
  • Piles of debris need to be placed in an accessible location on the curb, the equipment cannot reach debris under low hanging branches or low power lines.
  • Vehicles parked in front of piles of debris restrict access and crews will not be able to collect.
  • Only paper bags can be collected with leaf and brush, plastic bags with debris will not be collected.
  • If you only have a few small branches, please bundle together with twine or jute rope to streamline collection.

Please have debris on the curb by 7:00 a.m. on July 24th after making your appointment.
