The city of Lansing will conduct its annual Spring Clean Up at the Leavenworth County Transfer Station (on Gilman Road near the former McIntyre Mann Carpet building) on Friday and Saturday, April 23 and 24.

Lansing residents can bring their trash between 7 a.m. and 4 p.m. Friday and 8 a.m. and 2 p.m. Saturday. Residents must show a valid drivers license to receive this free service.

Residents may bring standard waste, old tires, household hazardous waste products including paint, thinner, anti-freeze and other automotive products. Please note: motor oil will NOT be accepted. Pesticides, herbicides, insecticides and other yard products can be disposed of as well. Also being accepted are household cleaning products, batteries, yard waste (including grass, leaves, tree limbs and brush). Construction and demolition waste, appliances and metal items may also be disposed of during the cleanup. Please note: concrete waste will NOT be accepted.

Burn barrels can also be dropped off, provided all residue is placed in plastic bags, watered down and put in a cardboard box.
