Community Meeting: Waste and Recycling in Johnson County

Johnson County invites you to join us for a community discussion about waste and recycling. We are updating our Solid Waste Management Plan and public involvement is necessary for this project’s success. The purpose of the Plan is to establish a clear vision for the waste diversion goals, recycling strategies, infrastructure needs, and priorities for the County over the next 25 years. Please join us to share your input as we look forward to hearing from you!

Two ways to provide input:

Recycle your Holiday

Holiday Lights: You no longer have to throw away your broken and unusable holiday lights, thanks to Southeast Enterprises, who recycled more than 60,000 pounds of holiday lights last year alone. Some locations will accept lights through January 11th; others have an earlier cut-off date. However, Southeast Enterprises’ Kansas City location will accept lights year round. To find a location nearest to you go to www.southeastenterprises.org/kcrecyclelights.
