Newsflash: Northeast Kansas City Still A Dump

Actually, this historic part of town is a bright shining light of the KCMO urban core but continues to confront illegal dumpers from across the metro who use neglected parts of the community as their trash can. Checkit:

Illegal dumping becoming a nuisance in NE Kansas City

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - In Kansas City's Northeast, there's a vacant lot near 24 Highway and Booth Avenue that is being used as an illegal dumping site. There's old food containers, parts of stripped cars, pieces of furniture and bags of garbage thrown all over the ground.

What a shame to let Northeast get this way, but instead Mayor Antifa and Congressman Cleaver Antifa, want to pour thousands of dollars into 18th and Vine. Other cities know the value of their historical areas like Northeast, except maybe Detroit.

Detroit makes KC look like shit. Booming riverfront and corrupt Mayor in federal prison.

Old news. The NE has been a dump for 70+ years.

It's been too cold and icy for the Northeast Residents to drive their trash across the River to dump it.

Northeast is not only a dump, it’s a shithole. Look at the people who live there.

Any neighborhood can become a dump if trash is allowed to collect on lots and sidewalks. People see trash already there and know that they can also dump whatever they want. The problem grows because the city doesn't deal with it right away. Our neighborhood has so many rental houses and vacant properties, the trash piles up for months even after the city is called multiple times. The lack of action by the city is the cause of this problem.
