2023 Yard Waste pick-up calendar
Bulky Item Pick-up occurs on the first Tuesday of each month and should be scheduled by contacting Waste Management at 800-964-8988 or emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org; please have your account number to schedule this pick-up. This service is limited to 1 (one) item that weighs less than 75 lbs. White good items, which include refrigerators, freezers, washers, dryers and water heaters, are not included in the bulky item pick-up. These items are picked up during the Citywide Clean-up event in April (see below). These items are considered scrap, are not accepted at the landfill and some also contain Freon, which cannot be taken to the landfill. These items can be stored and saved until the Citywide Clean-up event, find a scrap metal dealer or contact Waste Management at 913-837-4637 to have those items picked up for a fee.
Citywide Clean-up is scheduled for Saturday, April 29, 2023. This service is provided by the City for city residents only. Please have items at the curb by 6:30 a.m. Small items should be contained in boxes or bags. Refrigerators or freezers must be emptied, with doors removed, locked or steel banded and turned face down. Items not picked up: regular household trash; brush or limbs; and hazardous waste, tires or batteries - this includes paint, thinners, varnishes, pesticides, oil, gasoline motors, etc. Contact Miami County Sanitary Landfill at 913-294-2674 about disposing of those items. No demolition or construction material will be picked up. Commercial/business accounts are not eligible for citywide clean-up and this includes Rockville Ridge and Wea Creek apartment locations.
The market for recyclables is becoming more strict. Confusion is causing a lot of unacceptable materials to end up in curbside recycling bins. With the markets for recyclables in a fragile state, it is more important than ever that we collect only clean, acceptable materials. If you have additional recycling questions, you may reach out to City Hall, visit www.RecycleSpot.org or call 816-474-TEAM.
