City opens Chouteau leaf and brush site Sunday for storm relief


The Kansas City Public Works Department is opening the leaf and brush drop-off site at 1815 N. Chouteau Trafficway — just south of the Missouri River — on Sunday, May 11 to assist residents affected by last week’s severe weather.

The site will be open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.

The North Chouteau Trafficway location and the site at 10301 Raytown Road — south of Interstate 470 — will have regular Saturday hours from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Drop-off site rules are:
— If you use plastic bags, you must empty them and take them with you
— No duct tape or wire
— No grass clippings or trash
— Proof of residency, such as a driver's license or water bill, is required.

Public Works crews have completed targeted debris collection operations in the areas of the northland that were most affected by last weeks storm. Crews are now conducting a targeted collection in an affected area near Blue Ridge and 47th Street.

For more information about these programs, as well as trash, recycling and solid other waste collections, visit www.kcmo.org/trash or call the 3-1-1 Action Center, a division of the City Manager's Office, 816-513-1313 or 311.

Speaking of trash, Bunny...

This week's NEN claims that bulky item is already by appointment only, yet an article on KMBC's website said that the city hasn't set an official date, and that the switch to appointment only will happen this summer.

Who is right?

Bulk item pickup seems effectively to have been by "complaint only" for about 6-8 months already. I know they haven't picked up anything along 10th St near Benton in at least that long unless I called the Action Center.

And sometimes not even then.
