City Council voted to approve the Award of Contract-Residential Waste Collection to Constable Sanitation, Inc. on June 24.
Constable Sanitation will begin citywide residential trash service in Raymore the week of July 15. Recycling service will begin on the first trash pickup day of August.
Constable Sanitation offers a trash and yard waste rate of $12.95 per month, per residence. Recycling service is available for an additional $5.20 per month, per residence. Residents may opt out of recycling service by contacting City Hall. There will be a monthly charge of $1.50 included in the solid waste fee to pay for the carts purchased by the City.
PRICE BREAKDOWN The fee for solid waste and carts could vary depending on whether residents decide to continue recycling and how many carts a resident requests. The following could be reflected on a resident’s monthly utility bill if a resident chooses:
Trash Only (one or two trash carts) $14.45
Trash & Recycling (one cart for each) $19.65
Additional trash and/or recycling carts can be requested for 75-cents per cart, per month.
SOLID WASTE Constable Sanitation is offering to continue to pickup an unlimited amount of solid waste. Because crews will be primarily using the automatic loading trucks, trash will need to be placed in the trash cart. However, residents can request additional carts as needed from the city. The charge for these carts will be added to the bill for $0.75 per month each cart. Additionally, Constable recognizes that residents may have some weeks where solid waste may not fit in the cart (such as the holidays, for example). Because of this, residents will be allowed to place up to four additional bags outside of their regular carts at any time for pick up.
RECYCLING There is no change from current unlimited recycling service. However, all recycling now needs to be in a cart. Residents can also request additional recycling carts for weekly use from the city for $0.75 per month each cart. Like solid waste there is no additional tipping fee for additional carts.
YARD WASTE Yard waste will continue to be unlimited and can be placed at the curb year-round. The same yard waste rules apply (only grass clippings, leaves, vines, hedges, and shrub trimmings, tree trimmings and tree limbs). Yard waste should either be placed in a biodegradable sack or limbs in bundles not to exceed 3' in length and 18" in diameter.
BULKY ITEMS Residents can place one bulky item at the curb the first trash day of each month for free. Additional bulky items can scheduled for picked up for a fee.
PICKUP DAYS As part of its proposal, Constable Sanitation provided an in-depth analysis of neighborhoods and estimates on possible tonnages and how long it would take for crews to fully run the routes. Constable is proposing five days of pick up through the City. Yard signs will be placed at the entrances of each neighborhood starting July 1 to indicate new pickup days. View a map of trash pickup days here.
HOLIDAYS Constable Sanitation will observe the following holidays: New Years Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas Day. If your trash day falls on one of the holidays or after, it will be delayed by one day that week.

June 18, 2019 update:
City Council voted to approve the Award of Contract-Residential Waste Collection to Constable Sanitation, Inc. at the June 17 special meeting. There will be a second reading and vote on the bill at the June 24 City Council meeting at 7 p.m. at City Hall.

June 11, 2019 update:
The City of Raymore is cancelling its contract with Jim's Disposal, effective July 14. We will be transitioning to a new solid waste provider on that day.
Carts are currently being delivered through town and cart deliveries will continue through the month of June. Each residence is by default getting a 96-gallon trash cart* and a 65-gallon recycling cart. Please continue to use your Jim's Disposal carts until July 14.
*If you previously had a 45-gallon cart with Jim's Disposal, your 96-gallon cart will be replaced with a 65-gallon cart after the initial cart delivery is completed. Anyone wishing to downsize to a 65-gallon trash cart may contact City Hall Utilities at 816-331-5182 starting July 1.
We have seen very slow and unreliable service and communications with Jim's Disposal over the last several months- especially these last few weeks. Please bear with us as we are doing what we can to work with Jim's to get your trash picked up until the new trash contractor takes over.
The City continues to evaluate proposals from four solid waste companies and will be announcing the new solid waste contractor later this week. The City Council will consider staff's recommendations at its meeting on Monday, June 17.
We have asked HOAs and POAs to allow residents to store carts outside temporarily during this transition. We will share information about old cart pickups as it becomes available.
We will update this page with new trash service information as it becomes available.
All trash carts should have an attached bag with cart information and information on what to expect with the new residential trash service. View the PDF online here.
