Kansas City residents can bring these materials to the church at 8001 Longview Road: documents to shred, anti-freeze, batteries, oil, paint, loose brush and limbs, leaves in plastic or paper bags, tires and rims.
Elderly or disabled residents who need help delivering items should call Shirley Dobbins at 816-761-3278 by noon Thursday. They must live in the area bounded by Interstate 470, 118th Terrace, Raytown Road and Hickman Mills Drive.
Canned goods, cleaning supplies, personal care products and money will be collected.
