City’s Deramus recycling center temporarily closing for site improvements

The City of Kansas City, Mo., is advising residents that the City’s recycling center at 4707 Deramus Ave. will be closed from May 16-31 to facilitate site improvements.

The City received a $49,679 grant from the Mid-America Regional Council to improve and update the recycling center. The site renovations will include relocation of the site’s main office; stripping and resurfacing of the parking lot; and repairs and replacement of existing fencing, among other aesthetic improvements.

“This improvement project will make a tremendous difference for both the residents that use the site and the dedicated volunteers and staff that make this operation possible,” said Michael Shaw, manager of the City’s Solid Waste Division. “This temporary closure will yield benefits for years to come.”

Under Job Order Contract Services, Kellogg, Brown & Root Services will perform the improvements.

While the Deramus recycling center is closed, residents are encouraged to recycle at the City’s other two recycling centers, at the Metro North Mall, 400 N.W. Barry Road; or at the former Wal-Mart Supercenter parking lot, 9051 Hillcrest Road.

Residents, contractors and local businesses are encouraged to take advantage of the improved recycling center when it reopens by bringing glass; plastics, #1&2; corrugated cardboard; mixed paper; newspapers; magazines; office paper; press board (cereal and food boxes); toner; and inkjet cartridges to the center for recycling.

Media inquiries should be directed to Dennis Gagnon, public information officer, 816-513-2659.
