Mosquito Season Starts Soon
Residents sometimes ask why we need a mosquito control program. Without that, these little beasties would flourish bringing the potential for serious health risks as well as nuisance and discomfort! Mosquitoes are the principle carriers of Zika Fever, West Nile Virus, Encephalitis, Malaria, Yellow Fever and Dengue Virus. These and other mosquito-borne diseases cause more than a million deaths around the world each year.
You can help keep mosquito bite risk low in our neighborhood by eliminating areas in your yard where mosquitoes breed:
Hasty Mosquito Control will begin treatments when temperatures reach the critical point and will continue through the summer. These occur in the middle of the night to avoid any inconvenience to residents. If you have specific questions about the treatments or need additional services in your yard you can contact Larry Patterson directly at 816-454-8115.
KCMO Pet Regulations
Neighborhood residents with pets need to be aware that Kansas City has a number of regulations regarding pet ownership. Key points follow:
Most of us enjoy our companion animals immensely, so it is important to give them wholesome food, clean water, and adequate attention. Proper supervision of our pets when out in public helps ensure that our friends and neighbors will enjoy and appreciate them as much as we do!
As you know, Kansas City picks up recyclable materials other than glass on our regular trash collection day. If you don't have one of those lovely blue bins for your recyclables or need a new or additional bin, you can pick one up at Price Chopper or Westlake's Ace Hardware for a nominal fee. Pitch in!
Remember that yard waste cannot be disposed of in your regular trash. However, KCMO residents can use the free Leaves & Brush Drop-Off site at 11660 N. Main Street, Saturdays from 8AM to 5PM.
KC Yard Waste Disposal Change - UPDATED!!
Clay County has been placed under an Emerald Ash Borer Quarantine due to the presence of these pests in our area. Consequently, we are no longer able to drop off yard waste at the Deramus facility. A new drop-off site has been created for our use at 11660 N. Main Street (NE corner of NE Cookingham Drive and N. Main Street). Usage details follow:
Hazardous Waste Disposal
TIP: For year-round disposal of household hazardous waste, the City’s drop-off facility is open 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. (Thursdays & Fridays) and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. (Saturdays) at the Environmental Campus @ 4707 Deramus. No appointments required.
Bulky Item Pickup
Kansas City residents can dispose of bulky items 6 times per year. Our neighborhood is in Zone 6, so pickup occurs in even months (Feb, Apr, Jun, Aug, Oct & Dec) on the 6th day or within 3 days thereafter. New rules require that you call in advance to request a pickup.
