Trash and recycling pick up days are Tuesday or Friday, depending on the village.
Residents are asked to ensure trash and recycling containers are put away at the end of each trash day.
Trash and recycling containers must be covered and stored in designated locations. Containers can be put out after 8 p.m. on the evening before pick-up day and must be removed from the curb and returned to storage areas by 8 p.m. the day of pick up. Call the Maintenance Office at (913) 651-3838 if trash pickup is missed.
In addition, recycling services are available for paper, glass, cardboard, plastics and aluminum cans. There are several recycling bins around post as well as the recycling collection point at 740 W. Warehouse Road.
