This year, the city of Lansing is sponsoring its Annual Clean Up at the Leavenworth County Transfer Station (136 E.

Lansing residents can bring their trash between 8 a.m. and 3:45 p.m. Tues. – Fri., and from 8 a.m. and 1:45 p.m. on Sat. Leavenworth County residents must show a valid driver’s license to receive this free service. One free load per household will be permitted. All items in truck beds or trailers must be covered with a tarp to secure the items.

The city of Lansing and Leavenworth County Transfer Station will also have the Household Hazardous Waste Trailer available at City Hall, 800 1st Terr., on Sat., April 22, 2017 from 8 a.m. until noon for residents to drop off household hazardous waste at no charge.

Residents may bring standard waste, old tires (maximum of five (5) tires), and household hazardous waste products including paint, thinner, anti-freeze and other automotive products. Please note: motor oil will NOT be accepted. Vehicles and watercraft will NOT be accepted. Pesticides, herbicides, insecticides and other yard products can be disposed of as well. Also being accepted are household cleaning products, batteries, yard waste (including grass, leaves, tree limbs and brush). Construction and demolition waste, appliances and metal items may also be disposed of during the cleanup. Please note: concrete waste will NOT be accepted.

Burn barrels can also be dropped off, provided all residue is placed in plastic bags, watered down and put in a cardboard box. Electronics may be dropped off and will be recycled through an e-waste program; however, electronics waste cannot contain hazardous chemicals such as refrigerants.
