JUNCTION CITY, Kan. - The City of Junction City is pleased to announce the City's Annual Fall Leaf Collection/Drop-off Program. Starting Monday, Nov. 4, and continuing as weather permits through the end of November, Junction City residents may bring bags of leaves, grass clippings and bulk leaves to be dropped off at the following locations.
West 5th Street (near the City Pool area)
Public Works Center
2324 North Jackson St. (near the City/County Animal Shelter)
Residents are asked to only drop off leaves or grass clippings; NO TRASH OR TREE LIMBS ALLOWED. The drop-off centers will be on the honor system relying on the public to not place trash in the collection bin areas.
The drop-off center bins will be constructed of concrete barriers and signed accordingly at the locations.
If trash and other non bio-degradable materials become an issue, the drop-off collection system will stop and the program will be restructured.
The intent of the program is to become environmental stewards of our community; allow residences an opportunity to drop and remove leaves and other bio-degradable materials; minimize the amount of materials going into our landfills; and further help in maintaining affordable sanitation rates within our community.
