The City of Lee’s Summit will host an open house for the proposed transfer station from 5:30-7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, June 22, 2016, at Lee’s Summit City Hall, 220 SE Green St., in the Howard Conference Room on the second floor.
The purpose of the open house is to provide an opportunity for residents to learn more about the proposed transfer station and ask questions prior to the start of the development process. At the open house, there will be various stations set up to address different aspects of the transfer station, including aesthetics, environmental considerations, building design, operation, and more. There will not be a formal presentation, which will enable attendees to stop by multiple stations. Visitors can come and go as their time allows.
City staff, representatives from Summit Waste Systems/HES (the City’s current landfill operator), and the engineering consultant SCS Engineers will be available at the meeting to answer questions.
The proposed transfer station would be located at the City’s Resource Recovery Park, 2101 SE Hamblen Rd., for use after the City’s landfill reaches its permitted capacity and can no longer accept waste. A transfer station is a building in which waste from multiple trash trucks is combined and placed in larger haul trucks for transport to a landfill for disposal.
