Electronics recycling coincides with dumpster program

Lenexa residents have the opportunity to drop off unwanted items, including electronics for recycling, at the city service center during the annual dumpster weekends. The first dumpster weekend this year will be held Saturday, April 4 and Sunday, April 5.

Fees per load, ranging between $15 and $40, will be collected at the entrance gate. A $10 recycling fee will apply for each CRT monitor and TV that is dropped off. Additional fees also apply for tires and appliances containing Freon.

Items may be dropped off between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. each day during dumpster weekend. The service center is located at 7700 Cottonwood Drive (enter from 79th Street by the soccer fields across from Mill Creek Elementary School). Proof of residency will be required at the entrance.
