FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: July 2, 2018
Administrative offices for the City of Kansas City, Missouri, and the 311 Center will be closed on Wednesday, July 4, in observance of the Independence Day holiday.
Trash and recycling collection will adjust to a holiday schedule, meaning trash that is normally scheduled for a Wednesday pickup, will be collected on Thursday.
It’s also going to be easier to dispose of even more trash between July 5-10. During this period, residents can set out more than two bags of trash for free curbside pickup, without buying tags for extra trash bags. However, hazardous waste, bulky items or leaf and brush will not be accepted.
Additionally, the monthly testing of the City’s emergency sirens is being rescheduled to July 11. The test, which is regularly conducted on the first Wednesday of the month, will resume its normal first-Wednesday schedule on Aug 1.
The outdoor warning sirens are tested to make sure they are ready during emergencies. The City owns more than 130 sirens operated and maintained by the Office of Emergency Management.
