FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: June 30, 2008
Trash pick-up delayed, City offices closed July 4
No trash tags needed July 7-11
In observance of Independence Day on July 4, curbside trash and recycling collection will be delayed one day and City of Kansas City, Mo., offices will be closed. The 3-1-1 Action Center, a division of the City Manager's Office, also will be closed for the holiday.
Residents who usually have Friday trash collection will receive this service Saturday, July 5.
The week of July 7-11 is a “no tag” period for trash collection in the city. During this period, residents may set out more than two bags of trash without tags. This is done to accommodate the extra trash that is usually accumulated at this time.
