RURAL JO CO KS

If you reside in rural Gardner, Edgerton, Olathe, Spring Hill and Stilwell, KS, you have 2 service packages to choose from that include both curbside trash and recycle pick-up.

Please be sure to place all items out by 7:00 a.m. on your pick-up day.

There are separate trucks for each service that will arrive at different times.

We make accommodations for elderly and disabled households.

Windy days make for a big mess.  Help us help you get rid of your disposables.  Bag it up!  This greatly diminishes fly-away items during collection whether it's done by manual labor or automation.  Thanks so much for your help!
