UPDATE FOR 1/31/2019: PW staff continues to pick up limbs in the orange section of the map. Out tree contractor will return next Monday, February 4 to resume the large limb pickup. Staff have been taking down address of those piles that are too large and these will be picked up by the contractor. Please remember to stack limbs parallel to the curb, and as close to the curb as possible. As a reminder, WCA will pick up small piles that are no longer than 4 feet long and are bundled together. These must weigh less than 50 pounds. We thank you for your patience during this cleanup effort.
ORIGINAL POST: In response to the storm damage on 1/12-13/19, the City of Roeland Park will provide City-wide curbside tree debris pickup at no extra cost to residents. Public Works staff will begin collections on Wednesday, January 23rd, 2019 on the West side of Roe Blvd in the light blue area of the map below and work their way to the Orange section. Once the westside of Roe Blvd is complete, public works will begin in the Green section east of Roe Blvd, then move to the Yellow section, and finally the Purple section. Public works staff will be picking up tree limbs that are no bigger than 10” in diameter. Staff will note the addresses of the limbs that are larger than 10” in diameter, and we will have our tree contractor pick up those larger limbs the following week. The contractor will begin their efforts on January 28th, 2019 on the West side of Roe Blvd in the light blue area of the map and work their way to the Orange section. Once the westside of Roe Blvd is complete, the contractor will begin in the Green section east of Roe Blvd, then move to the Yellow section, and finally the Purple section. We will make one pass down each street and we ask all residents to take advantage of this assistance in the following way:
- Residents are responsible for cutting and neatly stacking limbs curbside including limbs from trees located in the street right of way.
- Brush should be placed parallel to the curb, so it does not block the sidewalk or stick out into the street.
- Branches should be no longer than 8 feet in length. This ensures the branches will fit into the trucks being used for collection, making our pickup process more efficient.
- Avoid placing limbs next to fire hydrants and light or power poles.
- We encourage residents to bundle smaller limbs in 4 feet lengths, weighing not more than 50 lbs. Place bundles at the curb to be picked up as part of your weekly yard waste collection service. This will speed up collection for all residents. The weekly yard waste service provided will be adding additional trucks to the weekly routes to aid in this clean up effort.
Please contact City Hall (913-722-2600) with any questions or concerns. We encourage our residents to share this information with neighbors. Updates on progress of the storm debris pickup will also be posted on the City's NextDoor and Facebook pages.
