Kansas City will provide curbside debris pickup for some of the areas hardest hit by the June 26 storm.
Curbside collection will begin July 6 for targeted areas:
▪ Northeast Englewood Road to the Missouri River, 169 Highway to North Brighton Avenue.
▪ Missouri River to 63rd Street, State Line Road to Blue Ridge Cutoff.
Bundles must be placed curbside by July 6, although collections will take several weeks to complete.
Branches less than 3 inches in diameter should be in bundles no more than 4 feet long and 2 feet wide. Branches larger than 3 inches in diameter may be set out, but should be cut into pieces no longer than 4 feet long and 2 feet wide. Twine or rope, not wire or plastic tape, should be used to tie bundles.
The city’s leaf and brush drop-off sites will be open, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., through July 12 for free debris drop-off, but will be closed July 4 and July 5. Locations and more information are at www.kcmo.gov/storm.
