Fort Leavenworth Frontier Heritage Communities
With a minimal investment of time, residents can take advantage of one of the utility services included for everyone residing on Fort Leavenworth — water. Watering lawns helps the on-post villages look beautiful.
Water lawns in the morning. This gives the water time to soak into the ground. When lawns are watered during the day, the heat can cause the water to evaporate, leaving the lawn just as dry as it was before watering.
Bulk trash pick-up resumed June 1 and the trash bins near Hancock Gate have been removed.
The City Union Mission Christian Life Center truck is now parked across the Community Management Office weekdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. where residents can drop items off or arrange curbside pick-up.
Normal second Saturday curbside donation will continue June 13. The second Saturday of each month, place items for donation curbside before 10 a.m. for collection between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m.
The mission accepts clothing, furniture and other household items, but not appliances, mattresses, cribs or carseats. Separate any bulk trash from donations and place clothing and shoes inside plastic bags marked for mission donation.
Anything left on the curb Monday will be collected as bulk trash and not a donation.

Turn down the thermostat by two degrees in the winter and turn it up two degrees in the summer. Doing this can reduce the amount of carbon dioxide generated by 2,000 pounds annually. Use reflective curtains to regulate the sunlight coming into the home.
