Kansas City Trash Pickup Paused Amid Latest Subzero Blast

Over the years, Kansas City has demonstrated an ongoing inability to consistently manage trash pickup. 

Of course we don't want to put workers at risk but we can't help but notice that other cities across the region continue to manage services despite the difficult BUT EXPECTED weather challenges. 


“As subzero temperatures continue in Kansas City, employee safety remains a priority,” reads a statement from City Hall. “The effects of prolonged exposure to dangerously cold temperatures create avoidable health and safety risks.
