The Spring 2023 neighborhood dumpster will arrive on Scottie Drive on Friday, April 28th, and will stay until Monday, May 8th, unless it fills before then.

Each year (and sometimes twice a year), the neighborhood gets a large dumpster to help residents out with their house cleaning. It is typically available for a week, or until it’s filled up, whichever comes first.

Please be respectful of your neighbors and condense your trash as much as possible when loading it into the dumpster, so that there is enough room for all the homeowners to discard their items. In addition, please avoid recyclable items such as cardboard, paper, cans, and plastic bottles. They take up space and can be easily recycled at multiple facilities in Kearney.

Please do not overfill the dumpster (no higher than top edge). Instead, please notify a TLHA board member who can then determine if another dumpster can be ordered.

Please note the following items may NOT be placed into the dumpster.

  • Yard waste, branches, or firewood
  • Dirt, brick, or large pieces of concrete
  • Paint, stain, thinners or mineral spirits
  • Lawn chemicals, household or shop chemicals, fluorescent bulbs, or other hazardous materials
  • Tires, batteries, old oil, or any old automotive fluids

Other instructions:

  • Lawn equipment or machinery should have all oil, gas, and other fluids removed
  • Large appliances should be drained of freon or any other hazardous chemicals.
  • Remove any food from refrigerators or freezers.
  • Dumpster should be filled only to the point where it is level with the sides. We are charged an extra service fee if we overfill it.

PLEASE NOTE: All scrap metal, large or small, as well as large appliances can go inside the dumpster. It is no longer necessary to place it in a pile next to the dumpster for special pickup. 

For ridding yourself of paint, batteries, old automotive fluids, and other household chemical products, you may take them to the Kansas City Water Dept. Hazardous Waste facility at 4707 Deramus Avenue, Kansas City, MO 64120. Click here for more info.
