Trash and Recycling
Printable Trash SchedulePickup for normal household trash and recyclables is provided by the City of Mission Hills and paid for by your tax dollars. Service is provided by Waste Management. Please keep all containers out of sight, except on your scheduled pick-up day when containers should be placed for pick up by 7 am. When placing items in your recycling container, please remember that plastic bags cannot be recycled. Lastly, all carboard boxes must be broken down in order to be picked up with recycling.
Yard waste is picked up every Monday and must be placed in paper bags or a rigid container no larger than 35 gallons with no plastic bags. Tree trimmings and small limbs must be bundled with twine or another biodegradable tie and cannot be longer than 3 feet. There is no limit to the amount of yard waste that can be put at the curb side as long as it adheres to these requirements.
Household hazardous materials including paint, yard chemicals, cleaners, and much more must be taken to the Johnson County Department of Health and Environment Household Hazardous Waste facility for disposal. Drop-offs are by appointment only and can be made through the Johnson County website or by calling 913-715-6907.
