City Looks to the Future of Solid Waste Services

With the Lee’s Summit Municipal landfill expected to close in 2018 due to it reaching its permitted capacity, the City of Lee’s Summit is taking steps to preserve recycling programs and other solid waste services by pursuing a contract based on a privatization proposal.

By doing so, the City will be in a position to continue providing its locally and regionally recognized environmental programs and solid waste services. Currently, the revenue generated from trash disposal fees at the City’s Resource Recovery Park (RRP) subsidizes the City’s environmental programs at an approximate $900,000 annual cost. Among those City programs are yard waste, household hazardous waste, and recycling, such as white goods (appliances), electronics, carpet, and more.
