Due to continued snow removal efforts, the City’s trash operations will be delayed by one day. All trash, recycling and scheduled bulky item pickup appointments will be on a one-day delay this week.
With snow cleanup efforts still underway, KCMO is suspending all trash and recycling services for Monday, January 3, so these drivers are available to plow snow and ensure the roads are completely clear for the traveling public. Over 130 employees from Public Works, Solid Waste, Parks & Recreation and KC Water will report Sunday night to salt and plow roads. On Monday, over 200 employees will be on the roadways salting and plowing.
Specifically, this means:
- No trash or recycling pickup on Monday, Jan. 3.
- Where trash day is scheduled for Monday, trash will be collected on Tuesday. Normal Tuesday collection will be on Wednesday, normal Wednesday collection will be on Thursday, normal Thursday collection will be on Friday and normal Friday collection will be on Saturday.
- Monday bulky item pickup appointments will also be delayed one day.
These impacts are necessary as part of the City’s snow plan, which prioritizes improved snow removal services across the city.
All drivers are reminded to exercise caution, especially around snowplow operators, allow extra travel time, and park off-street where possible, or on the north and west sides of neighborhood streets. Parking cars on only one side of residential streets will help plows clear your streets faster and more completely.
