KANSAS CITY, Missouri — City officials want to remind residents that the first curbside leaf and brush collection of the season begins Monday, Oct. 27.

On their regularly designated trash pick-up day, residents may place up to 20 bags or bundles of leaf and brush at the curb by 7 a.m. Residents who live in the City’s Central Zone will receive collection the weeks of Oct. 27 and Dec. 1. The Central Zone includes all residents who live between the Missouri River south to 63rd Street, not including residents who live east of the Blue Ridge Cutoff.

Residents who live in the City’s South Zone will receive collection the weeks of Nov. 3 and Dec. 8. The South Zone includes all residents who live between 63rd Street south to the southern City limit, as well as all residents who live east of the Blue Ridge Cutoff. Residents who live in the City’s North Zone will receive collection the weeks of Nov. 17 and Dec. 15. The North Zone includes all residents who live between the Missouri River north to the City’s northern city limit.

Please follow the 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 three inches in diameter, and bundles of branches must not be more than two by four feet.

• 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 use the city’s three leaf and brush drop-off sites, which are located at 11660 N. Main St., 1815 N. Chouteau Trafficway and 10301 Raytown Road. All three sites are open and free for residents to use on Saturdays from 8 a.m. – 6 p.m. In addition, residents may drop-off leaf and brush at the Chouteau and Cookingham sites on weekdays from 8 a.m. – 6 p.m. for a small fee.

In addition to dropping off leaves and brush, residents may also pick-up mulch at the drop-off sites.
