Trash and recycling collection resumes tomorrow
The City of Kansas City, Mo., is advising residents that curbside trash and recycling collection will resume tomorrow, Wednesday, Feb. 27. It was suspended today due to the snowstorm. Due to this suspension, trash and recycling collection is delayed one day the rest of this week. For example, residents who usually have Tuesday collection will receive it Wednesday, Feb. 27. Residents who usually have Friday collection will receive it Saturday, March 2.
In addition, residents with regular Wednesday, Thursday and Friday pickup who did not receive trash collection last week will be allowed to place up to four bags of trash curbside without tags.
The City encourages residents to place their trash curbside after the snow event. Any residents with trash currently curbside are advised to bring it back in and place it out after 3 p.m. the day before collection.
Please note that the City’s bulky item, illegal dumping and dead animal collections have also been suspended. This will allow crews normally assigned to these services to assist with snow removal.
The City appreciates residents’ patience with these delays in solid waste services.
