City schedules fall cleanup
The city will stage its annual fall cleanup from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Oct. 6 and 7, at the Leavenworth County Solid Waste Transfer Station/Recycling Center on Gilman Road.
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 and thinner; oil and other automotive products; pesticides, herbicides, insecticides and other yard products; household cleaning products; and batteries.
Burn barrels nearing the end of their usefulness also can be dropped off. Organizers ask that the barrel 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 visit the transfer station for the cleanup can call City Hall, 727-3233, by Friday, Sept. 29, to make an appointment for city staffers to pick up items for the cleanup.
Those items will be picked up on Friday, Oct. 6.
