This new program also is intended to help the environment by reducing what is sent to landfills, and thereby making recycling easier. The sturdy, lidded carts also will help keep our community clean by making it more difficult for critters to overturn your trash cans. And as an added benefit, Allied Waste will rebate the City 50% of the value of all recycling collected
The City recognizes that there are situations in certain segments of the community concerning aspects of the program. Staff has worked with Allied Waste to develop alternatives for those with special circumstances.
The City's recycling program is paid for with the sanitation service charge on residents' water bills. Payment for recycling is required whether or not residents participate in curbside recycling collection. The fees for trash and recycling help fund some of the other sanitation services in the City's program.
Residents are reminded that curbside collection of recycled materials will only be made from yellow lidded carts provided by Allied Waste Services.
Residents may continue to use the City drop-off recycling center located at 400 Suddarth in lieu of using curbside collection.
To arrange for the return of the recycling cart, call the City's Public Works Department at 816.439.4517. When calling, please provide the address for the pickup.
