During the month of June, a pair of events will give Harrisonville residents the opportunity to safely and responsibly dispose of unwanted items, like appliances, furniture and construction debris, and hazardous household materials, like paint, oil and batteries.
The first event on the schedule is the annual Household Hazardous Waste Disposal, from 8 a.m. until noon on June 13. The event will be held at the Harrisonville Streets Department facility, located at 1403 S Independence Street. The event will only be open to the first 200 vehicles, or until the removal trucks are full.
HHW includes products such as paint, automotive fluids, cleaners, lawn and garden products, bug sprays, fluorescent light bulbs, batteries and nail polish.
When dropping off items, please remain in your vehicle and turn your motor off.
The City of Harrisonville is a member of the Regional Household Hazardous Waste Collection Program, a service coordinated by the Mid-America Regional Council Solid Waste Management District. The June 13, event will only be available to residents of communities who also are members of MARC’s Regional Household Hazardous Waste Collection Program.
As you prepare for the event, please follow these tips for gathering your HHW for safe disposal:
• Seal containers tightly.
• Bring items in their original containers inside a sturdy box.
• If original container is leaking or damaged, transfer product to a safe container and re-label.
• Don’t mix products together.
• Be prepared to leave your containers. Containers such as gasoline cans will not be returned at mobile events.
Be prepared to provide information for COVID-19 contact tracing. Our partnership with Kansas City for this event requires that we collect this information, should it be necessary to notify patrons of a potential exposure.
Only residential waste will be collected. No business waste will be accepted.
The second event on the schedule is the bi-annual City-Wide Clean Up, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on June 19-20. The event will also be held at the Streets Department facility on Independence Street. The event, which was originally scheduled for May 15-16, but was rescheduled, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
