Curbside leaf and brush collection from 63rd St. south to the city limits will be the week of April 24-28 on residents’ regularly scheduled trash days.


Residents may set out up to 20 paper yard waste sacks and/or bundles of branches no more than three inches in diameter by 7 a.m. on their trash day. The use of plastic bags is not allowed, and grass clippings are not accepted.

Sacks do not have to be sealed, but if they are they must be sealed by masking tape, not duct or plastic tape. Bundles must be no more than four feet long and two feet wide and tied with twine or rope, not wire or duct or plastic tape. Sacks and bundles must not weigh more than 40 pounds each.

If sacks and/or bundles are not collected on the scheduled trash day, residents must call the 311 call center within 24 hours to report it.

Residents also may utilize the city’s leaf and brush drop off site at 10301 Raytown Rd. which is now open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturdays through mid-January except for holidays.

City residents may drop off leaves, yard waste and brush (including tree trimmings) for free by providing proof of residency by showing a valid driver’s license or state-issued ID. Grandview and Raytown residents may use the site for a fee.

Leaves do not need to be sacked, and brush does not need to be bundled. If persons use paper yard waste bags, if they are sealed only masking tape should be used. People bringing leaves in plastic bags must take the bags with them. Dropping off tree stumps is prohibited.

Residents also may pick up first ground mulch for free at the site.
