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:

Open burning ban in effect for Johnson County

On April 1st an erroneous press release announced that all open burning in a 16 county region of Eastern Kansas is banned.  This mistakenly included residential burn pits and chimeneas.  This burning ban does not include either of these sources, so long as they are not banned by your local jurisdiction.  Residential burn pits and chimeneas are allowed to be used in April under the regulations set forth by the Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE).  For specific information on the KDHE burn ban, please visit www.ksfire.org.

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.
