Refuse Collection

Refuse Collection Service

The City, through our contractor, Waste Management provides residential refuse collection service. The charge for this service is $16.69 per month, beginning Feb. 2019. Senior citizens 65 or older can apply for a discount, which is $14.69 per month as of Feb. 2019. Please place the refuse in securely tied disposable bags or sealed containers and set next to the curb by 7:00 am on your collection day. The ordinance requires that you do not place the refuse out more than 24 hours in advance of your date of pick-up.

Your refuse collection will be picked up as follows:
  • All residential refuse will be picked up on Thursdays.

If the regularly scheduled trash pickup falls on or follows one of the following holidays observed by the disposal contractor, your trash will be picked one day later:
  • New Years Day
  • Memorial Day
  • Independence Day
  • Labor Day
  • Thanksgiving Day
  • Christmas Day

One large item may be set out for disposal per year per household. Contact Deffenbaugh at 913-631-3300 at least one week in advance if placing a large item at the curb.

Yardwaste: This is a separate pickup item. Brush and tree limbs must be cut into three foot lengths and either be boxed, bagged, or tied into bundles.

Packing boxes will be picked up with regular refuse. It is requested that they be broken down and tied into bundles.
