Spring is calling, which means it's time to start thinking about cleaning up our properties. Merriam offers free curbside tree limb pickup on March 25-29 and large-item pickup on April 15-19.
Tree Limb Pickup // March 25-29
Place your branches and limbs curbside by 7 a.m. on Monday. Public Works crews will collect piles throughout the week.
Any tree limb or brush larger around than a pencil will be collected. Anything smaller should be placed in yard waste bags for disposal by your trash collection service. Limbs must be placed curbside in front of homes, but away from fences, overhanging tree branches, power lines, streetlights, and fire hydrants.
Please don't include any building materials, plastic, metal, cardboard, paper, or any other debris in the pile, as it won’t be picked up.
Large-Item Pickup // April 15-19
Our spring large-item pickup is when you can dispose of items such as furniture, appliances, rugs, and other miscellaneous items. Place your items curbside before 7 a.m. on your scheduled pickup day.
The City provides both of these residential services for free. Call Public Works at 913-322-5570 with any questions.
