Warrensburg Solid Waste Study

The City is developing a Solid Waste Management Plan.  The purpose of the Plan is to establish a clear vision for the recycling and composting goals, strategies, facility needs and priorities. Between March 15 and April 15, 2023, Warrensburg residents and business owners were invited to complete a survey and provide input to help inform decisions about trash and recycling for our community.  The public was also invited to attend an Open House held on April 11.  

The Burns & McDonnell consultant team will present the final draft of the Warrensburg Solid Waste Management Plan to the City Council at a work session on August 14, 2023 at 6:00 p.m. in the Council Chambers of the Municipal Center at 200 S. Holden Street.  The public is welcome to attend.  A copy of the draft plan is available at the link below.
