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 www.kcmo.gov/city-hall/trash/leafandbrush,
- 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.
