Spring Curbside Leaf & Brush Collection Begins April 6th
(Kansas City, Mo.) – KC Water will begin spring leaf and brush curbside collection Monday, April 6th. Customers are asked to collect their lawn debris in paper bags and set them by the curb by 7:00 a.m. on their regularly-scheduled trash day.
Please separate your leaf and brush from your trash and recycling. These are separate collections using different trucks.
Here is the spring 2020 schedule:
- Residents who live in SOUTH Kansas City (from 63rd Street, south to the city limit, as well as all residents who live east of Blue Ridge Cutoff) will receive curbside leaf and brush collection from April 6th – April 10th. Curbside collection will take place on your regularly-scheduled trash day.
- Residents who live in CENTRAL Kansas City (from the Missouri River, south to 63rd Street, but not including residents who live east of Blue Ridge Cutoff) will receive curbside leaf and brush collection from April 13th – April 17th.

- Residents who live in Kansas City NORTH (from the Missouri River, north to the city limit) will receive curbside leaf and brush collection from April 20th – April 24th. Curbside collection will take place on your regularly-scheduled trash day.
