Across our community residents are reporting downed tree limbs and brush after the storm that swept through the metropolitan area overnight on Mon., March 6.
The City does not pick up tree limbs or brush unless it rises to the level of a community-wide disaster, such as with the 1984 and 2002 ice storms. While this storm did not reach that level for Lee’s Summit, residents are reminded of private resources for disposing of tree limbs and brush:
· Tree limbs and brush can be taken to the Resource Recovery Park (RRP), also known as the landfill, now operated by Summit Waste Systems at 2101 SE Hamblen Road. More information about their services can be found at http://summitwastesystemsrrp.com/.
· Check with your trash hauler regarding the service they provide. Many haulers will pick up brush and limbs if they are bundled, no longer than 4 feet or bigger than 4 inches in diameter. Check with the hauler regarding any weight restrictions.
