Guidelines for collection

Once you’ve scheduled your appointment,
STACK ON YOUR CURB BY: Jan 28th, 6am 


DO NOT DISCARD BAGS OF LEAVESthey will not be collected  

IF YOU CAN TRANSPORT DOWNED BRANCHES YOURSELF: The City has waived fees for KCMO residents, with ID, at its three leaf and brush drop off centers, (11660 N. Main St., 1815 N. Chouteau Trafficway, and 10301 Raytown Rd) which now have extended operations through Feb. 16. 


Stay on top of City readiness for winter weather, and get preparedness tips, learn about the snow removal process, find emergency snow routes and check out answers to frequently asked questions, at

Remember: When the snow starts falling, residents should park vehicles off the street or park only on one side of the street, either the north or west sides, so that neighborhood plows can clear streets more quickly. The city’s snow procedures call for clearing a passable lane on neighborhood streets, while plowing main streets curb to curb.
