Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) about the Closing of the Recycling Centers

What are the environmental services and outreach programs?
Environmental services include Household Hazardous Waste, yard waste, and recycling of mattresses, electronics, carpet, white goods (appliances), shingles and more, plus the two drop-off recycling centers.  Outreach programs include RecycleFest (including the free shredding events), Stream Team, Outdoor Classroom,  semi-annual electronics recycling events, tours & presentations, etc.

Why are the recycling centers closing? 
Revenue from trash disposal fees at the landfill has provided the City with a funding source for environmental services and outreach programs, including the two drop-off recycling centers. Under the recently approved contract with Summit Waste Systems*/Heartland Environmental Services (HES), the City will no longer operate the landfill and therefore will no longer receive revenue from trash disposal fees. Without that funding, most of the environmental services and outreach programs, including the drop-off recycling centers, will need to close. 

*Summit Waste Systems is a wholly owned subsidiary of HES, and is the entity named in the contract with the City.

Final Day to Take Items to City’s Drop-Off Recycling Centers is Feb. 6

During its Jan. 14 meeting, the Lee’s Summit City Council approved a contract with Heartland Environmental Services (HES), LLC, to take over landfill operations at the City’s Resource Recovery Park (RRP) on March 1, 2016. The City will continue landfill operations until that date; however, the City’s two drop-off recycling centers will close and the final day to take items to those facilities is Saturday, Feb. 6, 2016.
