Trash Hauler Permits

Overland Park requires permits for both trash haulers and hauler vehicles to collect solid waste and recyclables.

Permits are good for a calendar year and must be renewed to continue operation in the City.

Haulers operating without permits will receive a notice to appear in Municipal Court.
