Residential Curbside Recycling

The City of Lee's Summit does NOT offer curbside recycling to our residents.  However, residents of Lee’s Summit may hire the curbside recycling hauler of their choice – monthly rates vary depending on the hauler chosen.  All licensed residential trash haulers are required to offer curbside recycling to residents if they request the service.  Additional fees generally apply for curbside recycling services, which vary depending on the hauler chosen.

Current licensed residential trash and recycling haulers are identified on the residential trash webpage.

Acceptable Curbside Recycling Items

Metal cans (aluminum and tin), food-grade types 1 and 2 plastics, and newspaper are required to be offered for curbside collection by residential haulers.  In addition, residential haulers are required to offer recycling of at least one of the following materials:  magazines, office paper, food-grade types 3-7 plastics, cardboard/paperboard, or glass containers.  However, each hauler is unique and offers to collect their own combination of recyclables at their discretionary rates.  Please contact the licensed haulers for a list of items accepted and associated rates.

Downtown Recycling

Ten recycle bins are strategically placed near existing trash receptacles throughout the downtown area.  Patrons have the ability to recycle their plastic and aluminum drink containers while shopping, dining, and playing downtown. 

These recycle bins were funded in part by a grant from the Mid America Regional Council - Solid Waste Management District and the Missouri Department of Natural Resources.

Feel free to shop, dine, play and RECYCLE the next time you visit downtown!
