trash pickup days, or contact Neighborhood Services at 913-676-8360.
The City has a contract with Deffenbaugh
Disposal for weekly curbside pick-up of trash, recycling, and yard waste from
single-family residences. You will not receive a bill, but a portion of your
annual tax bill is dedicated to paying for this service under our Solid Waste
Utility fee. Please remember that three separate trucks will visit your residence
on trash days: one for recycling, another for trash, and a third for any yard
waste you put out.
No, the city’s street sweeper is not designed to pick up large piles of leaves. Burning leaves is not allowed in the city limits.
Deffenbaugh will pick up leaves with your regularly scheduled trash pick-up when properly bagged. You must purchase large paper yard waste bags (available at most area hardware and department stores) and use these to bag yard waste such as grass clippings and leaves. You may place up to 6 of these paper bags on the curb each week. In November and December, the limit expands to 12 bags to accommodate falling leaves.
If you have yard waste in excess of the bag limit, you must buy a yard waste sticker for each extra bag to show Deffenbaugh that you've paid to have additional waste taken away. These stickers are $1.50 each and can be purchased during regular business hours at City Hall or the Sylvester Powell, Jr. Community Center.

To claim a vehicle that has been towed, you must first receive a written release from the Mission Police Department.
To obtain a release:
- We may only release a vehicle to its registered owner. If the registered owner is unable to come to the police station, a witnessed or notarized statement from the owner giving permission for someone else to claim the vehicle must be brought to the station.
- We must see a valid drivers license. If the registered owner does not have a valid drivers license, s/he will need to bring someone who does. If you were arrested for a DUI (Driving Under the Influence), you would have received a pink slip of paper called a DC-27. That replaces your license and must be shown when you are claiming your vehicle.
- We must see current proof of insurance.
- The vehicle registration must be current. The Police Department administrative staff has access to registration information online.
The administrative offices are open Monday-Friday, 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. If you wish to receive a vehicle release outside of regular business hours, please call 913-782-0720. The Johnson County Sheriff's Office will dispatch an officer to the station to release your vehicle.
