City says storm response is complete

The city has ended emergency storm debris curbside collection and debris drop off extended hours, saying its response to storm damage is complete.

“Clearing debris from Kansas City’s recent storm was a collective effort among many city employees who worked overtime and on nights and weekends to help clear storm debris,” said Troy Schulte, City Manager, in a press release. “We are grateful to our dedicated staff and to the residents of Kansas City for collaborating to clean and restore this city.”

The city says employees collected more than 680 tons of debris from residential curbsides as part of the city’s targeted storm debris curbside pick-up. More than 1,280 residents took storm debris to city drop-off centers. The city’s 311 call center, which extended its hours, got more than triple the average number of calls.

Residents who would like to drop-off additional storm debris may visit one of the city’s three brush drop-off locations: 1815 N. Chouteau Trafficway; 11660 N. Main Street; and 10301 Raytown Road. All three of the centers are open and free for residents to use on Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. In addition, residents may also use the North Chouteau Trafficway and North Main Street sites on Mondays through Fridays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. for a small fee. The Raytown site is only open on Saturdays.
