Single Stream Recycling

Your recycling is collected in a combined or mixed fashion. Paper and containers are collected together. Since there is no need to separate, recycle materials can be placed into your bin without regard to paper or containers. You no longer need to segregate paper in your bin. Add materials to your bin as generated.

 Curbside Recycling 

Curbside recycling services are available to all Liberty residential customers except apartment dwellers. Please use the cart with the yellow lid for recyclables. See below or on the yellow lid of your cart for a list of acceptable recyclables. The 65-gallon cart should be placed at the curb for pick-up the same day as trash collection. If you do not already have a cart, one can be scheduled for delivery by calling Public Works at 816-439-4503.

  • Recycling for Businesses: Business can also contract directly with Republic Services for recycling services as part of the City's contract. For more info, call Republic Services  at 816-254-1470. 

Drop-Off Recycling Center 

The curbside recycling program is supplemented with a drop-off recycling program. Residents can dispose of their recyclables throughout the week from 8 a.m. - 4 p.m. at the City’s Public Works facility at 400 Suddarth. View a directional map.
