The City owns and uses 4 trucks with plows and a skid steer and rubber tire loader with snow pushers.
The City budgeted $10,000 in 2021 to obtain salt, sand, and brine. When additional equipment is needed for snow removal efforts, the Public Works Department pulls money from the General Street fund as necessary.
The City treats the roads with a 50/50 mixture of sand and salt. The City will pre-treat the roads when ice or sleet is expected. Sometimes Douglas County will provide a brine (calcium chloride mixture) that the City uses as a pre-treatment on the roads. If not, the city uses the sand/salt mixture for pre-treatment.
The City’s approach to snow removal is to clear the main routes first to ensure emergency vehicle access. Once those streets are completed, the local/residential roads are plowed.
The map below demonstrates the main and secondary routes that are prioritized:
Trash bags are not required, but placing household waste in bags will help keep the cart sanitary.
No. Yard waste needs to be placed in compostable craft paper bags specifically designed for yard waste or bundled for collection. Plastic bags are not allowed.
Residents who find one cart is not enough can request additional 95 gallon carts at a charge of $4.00 a month.
No. The carts provided by Honey Creek are designed to withstand the demands of the truck’s equipment placed on them. Please use the supplied cart.
The standard issued cart is 95 gallons measuring approximately 29" wide, 34" deep, and 45" tall. The footprint on the ground is just slightly larger than a standard 30 gallon refuse container.
You can request an additional cart for $4.00 per month or you can buy a bag tag at Eudora City Hall for $1.00 per tag.
Please contact Honey Creek Disposal at 913-369-8999 for replacement or repair. Damage from abuse or modifications to the cart are the responsibility of the customer. Please do not modify the cart.
The cart is to remain at your old address. The carts are assigned to each address, not the customer.
When: Place your cart on the curb by 7:00 AM on the day of collection. The cart must be removed within 24 hours after collection.
Where: Place cart within 3 feet of the curb and at least 3 feet from any obstructions. The arrows should be facing the street and the handle facing your house.
