Yard waste and bulky item collection changes due to COVID-19
March 27, 2020

Due to feedback from trash haulers and amid concerns surrounding COVID-19, Johnson County Department of Health and Environment is temporarily allowing trash haulers to make the decision not to pick up anything by hand that is outside of regular trash or recycle bins. Materials this may affect will include curbside yard waste collection, bulky item pickup and recycling that isn't in a curbside bin. Trash and recycling will still be collected as usual at this time. If you have questions about your service, please contact your trash collection company.

For any other information about this, email Brandon Hearn.

As the weather improves and residents' interest in getting outdoors increases, JCPRD wants you to know that parks and trails are open. All indoor facilities are closed at this time, but there are plenty of opportunities to get exercise.

JCPRD Director Jeff Stewart asks residents to be mindful of increasing space between yourself and others to six feet or more and not gathering. Playgrounds and courts have also been closed to discourage this activity. Frequent disinfecting of these spaces is not possible.

Outdoor options include trail walking, running and biking, along with fishing and boating. Golf courses are also open beginning Monday, March 30, with "touchless golf". Only one person per cart will be permitted, and steps are being taken to clean carts after each use and ensure golf holes are not touched.

Child care hotline available, state regulation reminder
March 26, 2020

It is essential that children are placed in licensed child care facilities rather than “pop-up” child care during the COVID-19 pandemic. The purpose of regulating child care facilities is to reduce the risk of predictable harm to children while in out of home settings. Public regulation represents a basic level of protection for all children in our county. Licensed child care providers receive state mandated health & safety training, regular facility inspections, and knowledge of KDHE child care regulations.

Any individual providing childcare out of their own home for more than two unrelated children for more than a combined 20 hours a week is required to be licensed. Individuals caring for children in the child’s home do not require a license as long as only children of that household are cared for.

More information about state child care regulations.

Call the Child Care Licensing COVID-19 Hotline at 913-477-8361 during business hours.
