Make Your Next Event Green & Litter-Free
Our Green and Litter-Free Events program provides recycling bins, bags and other resources to help you minimize waste at neighborhood events, community festivals, cultural gatherings, races and other outdoor events. Our program helps you educate the public, save money by conserving resources, reduce landfill use and decrease event clean-up.
- Complete our online reservation form (scroll down to complete form)
- After your request has been approved and paid for, we will release the supplies. The supplies can be picked up at one of the two recycling centers listed below. NOTE: We need at least 5 days prior to your event to process your order.
- After your event, we ask that you return the recycling bins and banners to the recycling center you rented them from, and fill out an Evaluation Form so that we can track the success of your event. If the bins are not returned to the correct recycling center, we will charge you a $150 transportation fee.
Materials may be picked up or dropped off between 10 AM and 4 PM Wednesday through Saturday at two community recycling centers:
- Deramus – 4707 Deramus Ave. KCMO 64127
- South – 5200 E. Red Bridge Rd., KCMO 64137
