City Hosts RecycleFEST on Oct. 22 at Maintenance Facility

City Hosts RecycleFEST on Oct. 22 at Maintenance Facility

The City of Lee’s Summit is hosting its free RecycleFEST on Oct. 22 from 9 a.m. to noon at the City’s Maintenance Facility, 1971 SE Hamblen Road. RecycleFEST offers Lee’s Summit residents an opportunity to dispose of a variety of items in an environmentally friendly manner for free.

According to the Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries (ISRI), 66% of Americans will not recycle a product if it’s not easy or inconvenient to do so. Recycling and composting help save natural resources and creates cleaner land, air, water and better overall health for all. RecycleFEST collects materials that can be recycled and refurbished, reducing harm to the environment and saving landfill space.

The following list of items will be accepted:

  • Usable adult bicycles
  • Athletic shoes
  • Keys
  • Cell phones
  • Rechargeable batteries
  • Crayons
  • Eyeglasses
  • Hearing aids
  • License plates
  • Wine corks
  • Empty pill bottles, labels removed
  • Tennis balls
  • Golf balls

Residents are also encouraged to bring up to four paper grocery bags of sensitive documents per household to be shredded and then recycled. Paper clips and staples do not need to be removed; however, plastic covers and binders will not be accepted. This service will be available until the shred truck reaches capacity.

For more information about RecycleFEST, visit LSlandfill.net or call 969-1800.
