South Kansas City residents and neighborhood groups should start getting ready for this year’s spring 6th Council District Cleanup from 8 a.m. to noon on Saturday, June 12.
As usual, there will be two drop-off sites at the east parking lot of Ruskin High School, 7000 E. 111th St., and the parking lot of South-Broadland Presbyterian Church, 7850 Holmes Rd., that will accept bulky items such as old furniture, leaves & brush, tires (with or without rims) and trash. Both sites will provide document shredding, and there is no charge for any of these services.
The Ruskin site also will accept electronics, but there is a charge of $5 for CRT monitors, $10 for any item containing Freon, $20 for LED/LCD plasma TVs, $30 for CRT TVs 26 inches or less, and $50 for CRT TVs 27 inches or more and for wood console and big screen/projection TVs.
The cleanup is provided by the City Neighborhoods Department and the Public Works Department and sponsored by 6th District Council Members Andrea Bough and Mayor Pro Tem Kevin McManus, Community Assistance Council and South Kansas City Alliance.
Persons should contact Robert Woods with the Neighborhoods Dept. at 816-513-8442 for more information.
There also will be a free household hazardous waste drop-off at the Ruskin site from 8 a.m. to noon Saturday, July 31. Currently south Kansas City residents must take household hazardous waste to the city’s Environmental Campus at 4707 Deramus to properly dispose of it.
Items accepted include automotive products, batteries, CFL lightbulbs, household cleaners, lawn & garden products, paint, pesticides, solvents and used oil.
