Residents who are interested in yard waste service may order it directly from Republic Services at 816.254.1470. Yard waste collection is available for $59.07 per quarter or $236.28 for the entire year.
A 95-gallon yard waste tote is available from Republic Services. For collections from April through December, the tote can be placed curbside each week with the recyclables and trash carts.
- If customers are using the yard waste cart, they may place five additional yard waste bags at the curb each week.
- If customers are not using the cart, they may place up to 10 bags of yard waste at the curb each week. Customers must use brown paper yard waste bags, which are available at most home improvement or hardware stores.
- The contractor will also pick up branches that are bundled, as long as they are not longer than 36" long, the diameter of any branch does not exceed 3" and the bundle must weigh less than 40 lbs.
Due to issues with moisture in yard waste and concerns with freezing, customers should only use brown paper yard waste bags starting Dec. 15 - March 15. The contractor WILL NOT empty the carts during these three months.
