Trim Your Trees This Winter!
Posted on Jan 13th, 2021 Comments (0)
 
Did you know that late winter is the best time to prune trees? Pruning live tree branches during the dormant winter months encourages vigorous new growth in the spring.
 
Trees on your property located in the public right of way (approximately 12–15 feet from the back of the curb) are your responsibility to maintain. Note that the City of Lenexa has the right to trim or remove right-of-way trees for safety reasons, which we proactively address during winter months.

Christmas Tree Disposal Sites
Posted on Dec 26th, 2020 Comments (0)
 
 
 
City of Shawnee
 
Shawnee residents have relatively easy access to the Johnson County tree recycling drop off spot just north of the main Shawnee Mission Park entrance at Theatre in the Park. Any Johnson County resident can drop trees off there free of charge through Jan. 31 during regular winter park hours. There’s also a drop off spot at the Deffenbaugh Customer Convenience Center, 17955 Holiday Drive, near the landfill.

Johnson County Park System
 
Post-holiday contributions of discarded natural Christmas trees will be accepted at four Johnson County Park and Recreation District park locations from Dec. 26 through Jan. 31, 2021.
 
The tree collection sites are: the Sunflower access point of Big Bull Creek Park at 20245 Sunflower Rd. in Edgerton; the Theatre in the Park parking lot in Shawnee Mission Park with an entrance at 7710 Renner Rd., Shawnee (separate from the park’s main entrance); the Heritage Park Marina parking lot, 16050 Pflumm Rd., Olathe; and the north side of the parking lot at the marina at Kill Creek Park, 11670 Homestead Lane, Olathe.
 
Trees will be collected during regular winter park hours, which are 7:30 a.m. to 8 p.m., except at Shawnee Mission Park, which opens at 6 a.m.
 
In 2018, between 4,000 and 5,000 trees were "recycled." Some of the trees are mulched for use on trails and in landscaping while others are used to improve fish habitat in district lakes.
 
No yard waste will be accepted - only Christmas trees. Wrappers should be removed from the discarded trees, as well as any remaining decorations; particularly "icicles" and decorations made from mylar, shiny plastic or aluminum.
 
There is no charge for the disposal of trees, and these tree disposal sites are open to anyone regardless of residency. For additional information, call Visitor Services at the JCPRD Administration Building in Shawnee Mission Park at 913-888-4713.

We have been in contact with Waste Management regarding the exchange of the 65 gal carts to their 95 gal carts in preparation for the bi-weekly recycling pick up to begin in the new year. 

Bristol Valley: Bi-Weekly Recycling pick up will begin January 1st, 2021. If you haven't received your larger cart, please continue to set out your current cart during pick up days. Waste Management will be exchanging carts on pick up days over the next 3 weeks.
 
Bristol Ridge: Waste Management has delayed their bi-weekly recycling pick up to now begin February 1st, 2021. If you haven't received your larger cart, please continue to set it out during pick up days. Waste Management will be exchanging carts during pick up days over the next 4-6 weeks.
 
*If you do not wish to have your current cart swapped out for a larger cart, please affix the 'No Delivery Sign' attached by the blue hyper link below. Please leave this on your cart through the new year while waste management continues to swap out carts. Please know your recycling service will still be bi-weekly due to Waste Management's new policies.
