Important Information Regarding Trash Service Communication

The City of Lee’s Summit received numerous telephone calls and emails today regarding information received about trash services in our community:

  • There is no ordinance related to trash service on the July 23 City Council agenda. The City Council’s consideration of the proposed flow control ordinance may be set in the future. If and when a date is set for consideration of this proposed ordinance, the public will be notified.
  • The proposed flow control ordinance does NOT impact taxes.
  • The City does NOT set rates for residential and business trash services. The City DOES set rates for disposal of trash at its Resource Recovery Park or landfill.
  • The City Council has voted not to take final action on the proposed flow control ordinance or a contract for a transfer station until a week after the request for proposal (RFP) records become open to the public.

For FAQs regarding the proposed flow control ordinance, visit LSlandfill.net.

City Council Discussion of Flow Control Tentatively Set for an August Meeting

As the result of a July 6, 2015 vote of the members of the Environment and Natural Resources (E&NR) Committee, the Lee’s Summit City Council will consider a proposed ordinance providing flow control within the City. Flow control means all municipal waste material collected by commercial haulers in Lee’s Summit would have to be disposed of at the City’s Resource Recovery Park (RRP), also known as the landfill. The Lee’s Summit City Council’s consideration of flow control is tentatively set for an August 2015 meeting.

Flow control means all municipal waste material collected by commercial haulers in Lee’s Summit would have to be disposed of at the City’s Resource Recovery Park (RRP).
