Kansas City residents will have a chance to dispose of their leaves and brush this fall through the city’s annual fall leaf and brush collection beginning Oct. 21.

Residents who live in the City’s South Zone – between 63rd Street and the southern City limit and east of Blue Ridge Cutoff – will receive collection the weeks of Oct. 21 and Nov. 18.

Residents who live in the City’s Central Zone – between the Missouri River south to 63rd Street and west of Blue Ridge Cutoff – will receive collection the weeks of Oct. 28 and Dec. 9.

Residents who live in the City’s North Zone – between the Missouri River north to the City’s northern city limit – will receive collection the weeks of Nov. 4 and Dec. 2.

On their regularly designated trash pickup day, residents may place up to 20 bags or bundles of leaf and brush at the curb by 7 a.m.

Residents are asked to follow these collection rules:
•Sacks and bundles must not weigh more than 40 pounds each.
•Use only paper lawn debris sacks. No plastic bags.
•If you seal sacks, use masking tape only; do not use plastic or duct tape.
•No grass clippings. No trash.
•All branches must be bundled. Branches must not be more than 3 inches in diameter.
•Bundles of branches must not be more than 2 feet in diameter and not more than 4 feet long.
•Use twine or jute rope to tie bundles; do not use wire or plastic tape.
•If wet weather is forecast, cover sacks/bundles with clear plastic.

Residents may also utilize the city’s three leaf and brush drop-off sites located at 11660 N. Main St.; 1815 N. Chouteau Trafficway; and 10301 Raytown Road. All three leaf and brush drop-off sites are free for residents to use on Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. In addition, residents may drop off leaf and brush at the Chouteau and Cookingham sites on Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. for a small fee.

Due to the emerald ash borer’s presence, residents of Clay and Platte counties may only use the Cookingham leaf and brush site. For more information on the emerald ash borer, visit www.kcmo.org/eab.

In addition to dropping off leaves and brush, residents may also pick up mulch at the drop-off sites. Residents can pick up first ground mulch for free at all of the sites, or they can purchase natural darkwood, red and brown mulch and natural compost from the Chouteau and Cookingham sites for a discounted fee.
