The City of Harrisonville has once again partnered with Municipal Waste Services to host the annual City-Wide Clean-Up.

The event will be held on May 10-11, at 2606 Rock Haven Road, just east of Cass Regional Medical Center. Residents will be able to bring items from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day.

Items collected during the event will include, non-Freon appliances and metal items, water heaters, furniture, light construction debris, limited to one 16-foot trailer, and household trash. This year, Freon appliances will be accepted, for a $10 charge.

Items not being collected include, tires, auto batteries, oil, hazardous chemicals, paint, roofing shingles and yard waste.

To participate, residents will be required to provide proof of residency within the incorporated City limits of Harrisonville. For example, a City of Harrisonville utility billing statement.

Municipal Waste Services would also like to remind residents that they will pick up one bulky item per month, for free. Residents wishing to have their free item picked up will need to call MWS (816) 406-9700 to schedule the pick-up.

The City has also partnered with MARC to host the annual Household Hazardous Waste Collection event.

The event will be held on Saturday, June 1, at the Harrisonville Streets Department building, located at 1403 S Independence Street. The event will last from 8 a.m. to noon.

Many items commonly used in homes are considered toxic to the environment. These can include paint, cleansers, lawn and garden products, automotive fluids, bug sprays, fluorescent lights, batteries and other chemical products. If a product is labeled with the words Danger, Warning or Caution, it is best to dispose of it through the Household Hazardous Waste Drop Off program.

Residents will again need to provide proof of residency within the incorporated City limits of Harrisonville.
