The city of Lansing will have its annual clean up at the Leavenworth County Transfer Station (on East Gilman Road near the Crossroads Church) on Friday and Saturday, April 15 and 16.

Lansing residents can bring their trash on Friday between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. On Saturday, residents can bring their trash between 8 a.m. and 2 p.m. Residents must show a valid driver’s license and use the city trash service to receive this free service.

Residents may bring standard waste, old tires, household hazardous waste products including paint, thinner, anti-freeze and 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, although 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.

Electronics may be dropped off and will be recycled through an e-waste program.
