Leaf & Brush pick up for south KC starts this week

Residents may set out up to 20 paper yard waste sacks (no plastic bags) and/or bundles of branches.

Free curbside pickup of sacks and bundles of leaves and brush for KCMO residents who live from 63rd St. south to the city limits or east of Blue Ridge Cutoff will be on their regular trash days from April 25-29.

Residents may set out curbside by 7 a.m. up to 20 paper yard waste sacks (no plastic bags) and/or bundles of branches, all weighing no more than 40 pounds each.

Sacks should not contain any grass clippings or trash, and if they are sealed only masking tape should be used, not plastic or duct tape.

Bundles of branches must be no more than two feet in diameter and no more than four feet long.  They must be tied with twine or rope, not wire or plastic tape.

If sacks and bundles are not picked up on trash day, residents must contact 311 within 24 hours.

KCMO residents with a valid state-issued ID to provide proof of residency also may take their leaves, brush and grass clippings for free to the city drop-off site at 10301 Raytown Rd. from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturdays.  Brush does not need to be bundled and leaves do not need to be sacked.  Plastic bags should be emptied and taken home.

The drop-off site will be closed for holidays on Saturdays May 28, July 2 and September 3.
