Trash and Recycling Services

Trash Service Change!
The following information is for the NEW trash service scheduled to begin November 1, 2017. If you need information on the current trash service, Click here.

Changes are in store for the North Kansas City solid waste program!  At its meeting of September 19, 2017, the North Kansas City City Council approved an agreement with Jim’s Disposal Service (JDS) to provide trash and recycling collection, and other solid waste services for North Kansas City, beginning on November 1, 2017.  Here are some changes that are in store with the switch in the City’s solid waste collection vendor. 

Important Container Swap Information. Please Read!
With the new trash hauler comes new trash carts. JDS or its contractor will be working with the City’s current trash/recycling contractor to pick up the containers that have been being used and distribute new ones.  Here’s how it will work:
  • The City’s current trash/recycling collector, Town & Country Disposal, will be picking up its carts on Monday, October 30th and Tuesday, October 31st.  Please make sure to bring your cart and trash out to the curb on that day, and leave it to be picked up by Town & Country.
  • The first day of regular trash collection by Jim’s Disposal Service will be Friday, November 3rd.  JDS will deliver new carts to residences on Wednesday, November 1st and Thursday, November 2nd.  
Please Note:
It is possible that some residents may not have their new carts yet on Friday, November 3rd.  Residents who have not yet received their new carts by Friday, November 3rd should place their trash out on the curb on that day in trash bags.  All residents should have their new carts by the next trash/recycling collection day on Tuesday, November 7th.  We apologize in advance for any inconvenience.  If you have any questions please call Public Works at 274-6004.

Frequency and Days of Collection
  • Residents will continue to have their trash picked up two times per week, but everyone’s trash will now be collected on Tuesdays and Fridays beginning on Friday, November 3rd.
  • Recycling will continue to occur once per week, and it will be collected on Tuesdays beginning Tuesday, November 7th.

Trash and Recycling Containers
  • For trash, residents will be provided a 65-gallon wheeled container, tan in color, with a black lid.  If you wish to have a smaller container for trash, please contact the Public Works Department at 816-274-6004, and one will be arranged for you.
  • For recycling, residents will be provided a 65-gallon wheeled container, tan in color, with a blue lid. Again, if you wish to have a smaller container for recycling, please contact the Public Works Department at 816-274-6004, and one will be arranged for you.
  • More information will be supplied at a later date regarding the trade-out of the current waste containers belonging to Town & Country Disposal/WCA and the new ones belonging to Jim’s Disposal Service
Bulky Waste:
As before, bulky waste will be collected on the first Wednesday of each month. One change, however, to the current contract is that bulky pickup is limited to five items per month.  If someone would like to arrange for a larger pickup or a pickup on another day than the first Wednesday of the month, they may contact Jim’s Disposal Service directly at 816-221-1932 to arrange it for a fee of $25.  

The only holiday Jim’s Disposal Service observes that will affect North Kansas City residents is Christmas Day.  If Christmas Day falls on a Tuesday or Friday, service will occur on the following day (Wednesday or Saturday).  

Roll Off Containers:
If you have a large disposal project, you may call Jim’s Disposal at 816-221-1932 to order a 10-yard ($150) or 20-yard ($250) container. Please call Public Works at 816-274-6004 for placement guidelines.

We hope there will be as little disruption to residents as possible as we make this transition.  If you have any questions or concerns about the switch to a new contractor, please contact the North Kansas City Public Works Department at 816-274-6004.
