KANSAS CITY, Missouri — Next weekend, the city will help residents safely dispose of hazardous waste.

On June 7, from 8 a.m. – noon, residents may safely and sustainably recycle any household hazardous waste, unwanted confidential documents, old electronics and leaves and brush at the Antifreeze, Batteries, Oil, Paint and Tire (ABOPT) collection event at the Mohart Multipurpose Center, 3200 Wayne Ave.

City staff will be on hand to help with the collection. Proshred will also be on-site for disposing of unwanted confidential documents and Vintage Tech Recyclers will accept old electronics. A leaf and brush dumpster will be onsite for leaves, yard waste, brush and tree trimmings. All items must be in paper bags, not plastic.

Proof of residency is required for dropping off tires, leaves and brush—these categories are limited to Kansas City, Mo., residents. Space also is limited to the first several hundred vehicles that arrive. Another ABOPT collection event will be held in September. Meanwhile, residents may drop-off household hazardous waste year-round at the city’s Household Hazardous Waste Facility, 4707 Deramus Ave. This facility is open Thursday and Friday from 9 a.m. – 6 p.m. and on Saturday from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. Appointments are not required.

This event is sponsored by the city and Heartland Community Connection in partnership with the Ivanhoe Neighborhood Council, Blue Hills Community Services, Neighborhood Housing Services of Kansas City, Bridging the Gap, Keep Kansas City Beautiful, Kansas City Metropolitan Crime Commission, Green Impact Zone and Kansas City Police Department.
