Resident Tips: Fall

As the seasons change and lawn work in preparation for winter begins, it is important that each resident is doing their best to be a good neighbor by properly removing lawn debris. By working together, we can keep our community a clean, safe and enjoyable place to live, work and play.

Resident Lawns & Brush Piles
Resident lawns should not exceed 8 inches in height. Brush piles must be removed and disposed of properly, and open burning is not permitted within city limits. Avoid blowing or sweeping trash and leaves into streets. Piles of leaves in the curb line not only cause potential flooding concerns, they block a portion of the road and cause slick conditions during rainstorms.

Eastern Jackson County Yard Waste Collection Center allows residents to recycle grass clippings, leaves, brush and limbs for a nominal fee. Located at 37910 E. Pink Hill Road in Oak Grove, they are open on Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Tree Limbs
Limbs that overhang the sidewalk or street must be trimmed. Call Public Works at (816) 220-0121 if you have questions about limbs in the rights-of-way of streets.

Trash Containers
Trash for pick up should be placed no further than 5 feet from the home. Curbside pick up is prohibited. All trash must be contained at all times.
