Minimum charge:                                     $6.05 (1/2 yd3)

**For vehicles smaller than 1 ton, price is estimated by the cubic yard.  Trucks, load sizes, and materials within loads vary from trip to trip.  Therefore, because the size of a load is estimated by the scalehouse attendant (for vehicles smaller than 1 ton), the cost may vary from one load to the next.

The formula for calculating a cubic yard is:  Length (feet) x Width (feet) x Height (feet) / 27

Long-Term Solid Waste Planning

In 2006, the Lee's Summit City Council created a Solid Waste Management Task Force to analyze issues associated with the impending closure of the landfill, currently estimated to occur in 2017 / 2018. The task force, comprised of citizens, business representatives and industry leaders, met monthly to research the issue and develop a recommendation for the City Council. With the help of SCS Engineers, a Solid Waste Management Plan was developed.

In September 2006, the Solid Waste Task Force presented the plan to the City Council, who referred the matter to the Public Works Committee for additional discussion and action. If you have any questions about the report, please call the Public Works Department at 969-1800.
