Get that unwanted junk from your garage or basement, and be prepared for Overland Park's annual large item spring clean up.
Each year the large item program serves one-half of the city, using Antioch as the dividing line. Each year it alternates east and west of Antioch. In 2012, residences west of Antioch were in the target area.
This year it is for residents living east of Antioch.
Dates for 2013 are:
- Saturday, June 29, is for residents living east of Antioch, south of College Boulevard to the city limits.
You can set all items at the curb no later than 7 a.m. the day of pick up. Do not place items at the curb prior to the Friday before your collection date. Appliances may be collected separately from other items.
You can place up to two pickup loads of items in an orderly pile at the curb. Any excess will not be collected. Put out only those items not regularly collected by your trash service.
All loose items must be bundled. This includes wood scrap or drywall. Any loose items will not be picked up.
Special Note: No tree limbs, brush or yard waste will be collected as part of this program.
If you put out an appliance, make absolutely certain to secure the door to prevent any accidents.
Items that will be collected include:
- Car parts (no engines or fuel tanks)
- Railroad ties (four feet or less in length)
- Remodeling debris
If you have debris or trash that is not normally collected as part of your weekly curbside service, contact your trash hauler and arrange a special collection. If you plan to haul it yourself, there are several disposal sites in the area.
