Trio of spring clean-up events planned for April/May

City-Wide Clean-up spring 2019

A trio of spring events in April and May will give Harrisonville residents the opportunity to safely and responsibly dispose of a wide variety of unwanted items.

APRIL 30 - MAY 1: The first event on the schedule is the spring City-Wide Brush Drop Off, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on April 30 and May 1. 

The drop off location will be open from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. on both days, with gates closing promptly at 5 p.m. 

To access the drop off site, residents should drive to City Park at Bradley Avenue and Ash Street and follow event signs. Crews will be available to help unload trailers.  

Crews ask that all limbs be less than 10 inches in diameter and want to remind residents that no yard waste will be accepted.

The drop off event is limited to those living within the Harrisonville City limits. Contractors will not be permitted to use the service. Residents should be prepared to show proof of residency, such as a utility bill, before using the drop off.

Mulch and compost will NOT be available this year.

MAY 7-8: The second event on the schedule is the spring City-Wide Clean Up, from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. on May 7-8. The event will be held at the Harrisonville Streets Department facility, located at 1403 S Independence Street. (For traffic information, see the map at the bottom of this page.)

Items accepted at no cost: non-Freon appliances and metal items, water heaters, furniture, light construction debris, limited to one 16-foot trailer, and household trash.

Items not accepted: Freon appliances, tires, auto batteries, oil, hazardous chemicals, paint, roofing shingles and yard waste. 

This event is only available for those who live within the City limits. 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. To get your free item picked up, contact Municipal Waste Services (816) 406-9700 to schedule the pick-up.

MAY 22: The third event on the schedule is the annual Household Hazardous Waste Disposal, from 8 a.m. until noon (or until capacity is reached) on May 22. The event will be held at the Harrisonville Streets Department facility, located at 1403 S Independence Street.

HHW includes products such as paint, automotive fluids, cleaners, lawn and garden products, bug sprays, fluorescent light bulbs, batteries and nail polish. When dropping off items, please remain in your vehicle and turn your motor off.

The City of Harrisonville is a member of the Regional Household Hazardous Waste Collection Program, a service coordinated by the Mid-America Regional Council Solid Waste Management District. The May 22, event will only be available to residents of communities who also are members of MARC’s Regional Household Hazardous Waste Collection Program.

As you prepare for the event, please follow these tips for gathering your HHW for safe disposal:

• Seal containers tightly.

• Bring items in their original containers inside a sturdy box.

• If original container is leaking or damaged, transfer product to a safe container and re-label.

• Don’t mix products together.

• Be prepared to leave your containers. Containers such as gasoline cans will not be returned at mobile events.
