Trash will be collected Columbus Day
The Department of Environmental Management wants to remind Kansas City, Mo., residents that Columbus Day is not a day off work for City employees and therefore there will be no delay in trash collection service for this holiday, Monday, Oct. 14.
“This is one of the most difficult weeks of the year for our collection because some people mistakenly believe trash will be delayed,” said department Director John Stufflebean. “Unlike other holidays when people may forget and put it out a day early, in this instance, a certain percentage of the people will be missed for the week because they had not set out their trash before we came by their house.”
Questions concerning trash and bulky item collection services may be directed to the Department of Environmental Management’s Customer Service number, (816) 513-3490.
