Kansas City’s Public Works Department wants residents to know: If your garbage bags have a biohazard logo on them, the city won’t take your trash.
Some residents have recently bought red biohazard trash bags from a door-to-door salesman.
Public Works spokesman Sean Demory says that during the past month, garbage crews have spotted a few hundred of the bio-waste bags mostly on the east side between 47th and 63rd streets.
The Kansas City metropolitan area started gearing up yesterday for the season's first winter storm. One to three inches of snow was forecast for the area overnight.
Drivers may have noticed some changes on the roadways. At 37 intersections across the metro traffic lights are flashing red or yellow, and they’re not broken.
A year ago this month, Johnson County, Kan. officials broke ground on an environmentally friendly $11.5 million public works complex in west Olathe. The new buildings were dedicated on Wednesday at a ceremonial ribbon cutting.
