City expands leaf and brush drop-off hours for storm debris
The Leaf and Brush Drop-off site located at 1815 N. Chouteau Trafficway will temporarily extend its days of operation to service those Kansas City residents affected by last weekend’s storms that left extensive damage to the City’s Northland. The site will be open daily 8 a.m. – 6 p.m., Thursday, Sept. 23 through Sunday, Oct. 3.
The City’s other Leaf and Brush Drop-off site, located south of I-470 on the east side of Raytown Road, will keep its usual schedule, open on Saturdays only from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Also due to last weekend’s storm, special curbside pickup efforts in the City’s Northland have now changed.
The City will run a special collection of woody debris beginning Monday, Sept. 27 in the area bounded by 60th Street to the north, Parvin Road to the south, I-435 to the east and Antioch Road to the west. Residents living in this area should place woody debris curbside for collection by 7 a.m. on Sept. 27. The curbside cleanup effort will be similar to the cleanup effort that was required early this summer, when a localized storm struck the City’s Southland.
Residents are asked to please be patient if scheduled for a Bulky Item Pick Up, as these crews will be helping with stormclean up.
Because of the extensive damage to trees, please be cautious and stay clear of downed power lines (report to: 1-888-LIGHTKC (1-888-544-4852)) and downed trees or limbs, especially on structures which might become unstable.
Media inquiries about the City’s storm cleanup effort should be directed to Dennis Gagnon, public information officer for the City’s Public Works Department at 816-513-2659 or 816-335-5441.
