Beginning with the start of the new school year on Aug. 17, 2016, the recycling bins located in the Lee’s Summit R-7 School District parking lots will now be designated for school and student use only.
The City of Lee’s Summit has recently been made aware of changes in the Lee’s Summit R-7 School District’s recycling program. In July, the district’s recycling vendor provided notification that they will no longer offer a districtwide rebate program. This was a successful program previously offered to the district. The district has requested residents discontinue utilization of the outdoor drop-off recycle bins located at the Lee’s Summit R-7 parking lots Following the closure of the City of Lee’s Summit’s recycling centers in Feb. 2016, many Lee’s Summit residents had been utilizing the drop-off recycle bins located at Lee’s Summit R-7 School District parking lots located throughout the community.
Residents can find alternate drop-off recycling locations by visiting RecycleSpot.org.
