City of Lenexa residents are asked to place any storm-generated vegetative debris from this event on the public right-of-way alongside the curb.  Please have your items on the curb and ready for pickup by 7:30 a.m. on your scheduled day.  

  • Crews will only pick up storm-damaged limbs and branches.  Lumber, fencing materials, construction materials and yard waste such as leaves will not be picked up. 
  • Storm-damaged limbs and branches should be stacked in piles along the right-of-way. Do not place limbs and branches in boxes or other types of containers. Do not use rope or twine to tie the limbs together – only stack branches in a pile parallel to the curb.  
  • Do not place debris near water meter valves, fire hydrants or any other above-ground utility.
  • Only debris placed on the public right-of-way will be eligible for collection as City crews will not go on private property to collect debris.

Crews may be ahead of schedule at times and begin to work in the next day’s area.  Please know that crews will start over picking up debris in these areas on that corresponding day.
