City to sponsor spring cleanup
Lansing residents ready to do a little spring cleaning should circle April 1 and 2 on their calendars.
On those days, the city is sponsoring its Spring Clean-Up at the Leavenworth County Solid Waste Transfer Station/Recycling Center. The event is free for Lansing residents.
Residents can dispose of standard waste, tires, yard waste, tree and brush waste, old appliances, metal items, and construction and demolition waste.
They also can dispose of household hazardous waste, including paint, thinner, oil and other automotive products, pesticides, herbicides, insecticides and other yard products, household cleaning products and batteries.
Burn barrels that are nearing the end of their usefulness also can be dropped off. Organizers ask that the residue be placed in a plastic bag with its contents watered down, and all of the contents then placed in a cardboard box.
The transfer station is east of Kansas Highway 7 on Gilman Road.
Residents also can drop off their recyclable goods.
Those who are elderly or physically unable to travel to the transfer station can call City Hall, 727-3233, by Friday to make an appointment to have their items picked up on April 1.
