Fall Clean up for 6th District residents

This fall’s 6th Council District Neighborhood Clean Up will run from 8 a.m. to noon Saturday, October 2, with the same two drop-off sites as usual – the parking lots at Ruskin High School, 7000 E. 111th St., and South-Broadland Presbyterian Church, 7850 Holmes Rd.

There is no charge for all KCMO residents to drop-off bulky items such as old furniture or mattresses, leaves & brush, tires with or without rims and trash at both sites, and free document shredding is available at both sites as well.

Electronic items also may be brought in for recycling at the Ruskin site, but there is a $5 charge for CRT monitors, a $10 charge for any item containing Freon, a $20 charge for LED/LCD/plasma TVs, a $30 charge for CRT TVs 26 inches or less and a $50 charge for CRT TVs 27 inches or more and wood console and big screen/projection TVs.

Hazardous waste including automotive products such as antifreeze and oil, flammables, household cleaners, lawn & garden products such as herbicides and pesticides and paint will not be accepted. 

Workers will unload residents’ vehicles.  Residents are asked to wear masks at all times during the event.

At this spring’s June 12 6th District Clean Up, residents brought in 67 tons of trash/bulky items/leaves & brush, 3 tons of documents, 2 tons of electronics and 850 tires to the same two drop off locations.

The clean up is sponsored by 6th District Council members Andrea Bough and Mayor Pro Tem Kevin McManus, the City Public Works Department, Community Assistance Council and South Kansas City Alliance.

KCMO residents may contact Robert Woods with the City Neighborhoods & Community Services Department at 816-513-8442 if they have any questions.
