Trash pickup suspended Tuesday, delayed one day rest of week
Residents with Wednesday, Thursday and Friday trash pickup may place four bags curbside
The City of Kansas City, Mo., is advising residents that curbside trash and recycling collection will be suspended tomorrow, Tuesday, Feb. 26 due to the upcoming winter snowstorm. Due to this suspension, trash and recycling collection will be delayed one day the rest of this week. For example, residents who usually have Tuesday collection will receive it Wednesday, Feb. 27. Residents who usually have Friday collection will receive it Saturday, March 2. Residents with regular Monday collection will not be affected by the delay.
In addition, residents with regular Wednesday, Thursday and Friday pickup who did not receive trash collection last week will be allowed to place up to four bags of trash curbside without tags. The City’s trash contractor tried to pick up regular Thursday and Friday routes over the weekend, but had difficulty getting through some routes in the southern part of the City.
Please note that the City’s bulky item, illegal dumping and dead animal collections have also been suspended for the remainder of the week. This will allow crews normally assigned to these services to assist with snow removal.
The City appreciates residents’ patience with these delays in solid waste services.
