Trash Service

Bulk Item pickup is delayed until February 8th, 2019

Weekly Household Trash Pickup: Curbside pickup provided on Friday each week with the exception of holidays. During the holidays, the alternate pickup day will be Saturday.

Yard Waste Removal: Waste Management offers yard waste removal. Yard waste includes grass clippings, leaves, tree limbs and brush. Weekly pickup is scheduled and is included with regular trash service every week. (Weekly pickup is a departure from the former practice of L&K Disposal. We have inquired and have been instructed by Waste Management that weekly pickup is the new schedule. We will see if that actually takes place. Please let us know if this is not the standard practice.)

Recycling: We are proud to participate in the commingled recycle program. All recyclable items are taken to a commingled recycling center where they are sorted by hand.

  • Waste Management has provided a recycling polycart with a yellow lid.
  • Please refer to the list of accepted items on the lid of the provided recycling polycart.
  • Recycling is not accepted in plastic bags.
  • The recycling will be picked up on same day, Friday, as the trash service.

Large Item Pickup: The large pick up is a special arrangement for Shannon Valley Residents. Waste Management allows one large item the first Friday of each month. Many large items can be picked up.  Place you large item at the curb near your trash.  Please note: it will be collected by a different truck than the normal trash truck, so do not be surprised if your trash is taken but the large item remains until later in the day.

Polycart Waste Containers: Waste Management wants to make getting your waste to the curb as easy as possible. That is why provided wheeled polycart waste containers. The container is on wheels so that you can easily roll it to the curb. They also have a hinged lid so that on a windy day, there is no chance of the lid getting blown down the street. The lid also helps to keep animals out of the trash.

Needles & Sharps: For those customers that need to have needles or other sharp objects disposed of, we ask that you keep the following guidelines in mind: Please package all sharps and needles in a heavy plastic container such as a laundry detergent or bleach bottle and seal off with duct tape. We would also ask that it be clearly marked as “Needles”.

Paint and other Hazardous Waste: Waste Management is unable to take any kind of liquefied paint or hazardous waste. However paint cans that are either empty or where the paint is solidified can be picked up. Feel free to contact the following numbers for additional disposal information:

Interruption in Service: Please note that the trash service being provided by Waste Management for the Shannon Valley Neighborhood is funded through your Homeowners’ Association dues. Failure to pay your dues in a timely manner may result in suspension of trash service. If annual dues are paid, then please contact Waste Management about missed services, (913) 631-3300 or kccustomerservice@wm.com.
