FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: June 23, 2010
Trash pick-up delayed, City offices closed July 5
“no-tag” period July 12-16
Because the Independence Day holiday falls on a Sunday this year, the City of Kansas City, Mo., offices will be closed on Monday, July, 5.
Curbside trash and recycling collection will be delayed one day.
The delay will begin with residents, who usually have Monday collection receiving service on Tuesday, July 6. The delay will conclude with residents who usually have Friday collection receiving service on Saturday, July 10.
Also, the period of July 12-16 is a "no-tag" period for trash collection in Kansas City, Mo. Excess Trash Tag requirements are not in place during a “no-tag” period.
As a part of regular weekly solid waste collection services, the city allows residents to place two trash bags and unlimited recycling curbside, for collection. Each additional trash bag, beyond the two-bag limit, requires an Excess Trash Tag to be attached to the bag.
Tags can be purchased for $2 at participating Westlake Ace Hardware and Price Chopper stores.
