OP storm debris collection, drop-off and assistance

The City of Overland Park will provide curbside storm debris pickup to all Overland Park neighborhoods north of I-435, starting today.

The City’s contractor and Parks and Recreation Department crews will collect all tree debris at the curb.

Pickup for residents in the blue pickup area (Zone 1 on the map below) is now complete.

The City previously shared that residents in all other areas of north Overland Park, in the maroon pickup area (Zone 2 on the map below) should place their debris at the curb before Monday, June 3, for curbside pickup.

As of Thursday, June 6, the City’s crews and contractors continue to work on storm debris pickup in Zone 2. This may take another week or more, so please be patient as our crews work to clear debris. Crews typically clear through streets and will return to the area for debris on cul-de-sacs and dead-end streets where large trucks cannot fit.

The map above shows the area with the largest concentration damage from recent storms, where the City provided curbside pickup.

Preparing your debris for pickup

Storm debris left at the curb should be loosely stacked, not bundled with twine as this will jam the grinder.

Please cut branches down to eight feet in length maximum. Stack piles at the curb.

Please do not leave non-vegetative storm debris at the curb. This pickup is for tree limbs and branches and shrubs, not broken play or yard equipment.

Do not bag yard debris for the City’s curbside pickup. Loose yard debris like leaves and the smallest branches will be picked up by trash haulers.

Debris dropoff another option

The City’s debris dropoff site at Parks Headquarters will open Wednesday for those who need to drop off storm debris from recent severe weather.

  • Address: 11921 Hardy St.
  • Dates: Wednesday, May 29-Saturday, June 1 and Wednesday, June 5-Saturday, June 8
  • Hours: 9 a.m.-4 p.m.

Bagged and bundled debris will not be accepted. Please cut branches down to eight feet in length maximum.

Proof of residency will be required.

The dropoff site is for residential debris only. Contractors may not drop debris at Park Headquarters.

Residents who live outside the curbside pickup area should work with their trash haulers to remove tree debris and yard waste, or drop debris off at the dropoff site.
