Weekly curb side pickup of trash, recycling and yard waste are included in your annual Milburn Fields HOA dues ($204 of the $216 collected for 2022). Overland Park also operates a drop-off Recycling Center at 11921 Hardy.
Our neighborhood currently contracts with GFL (previously named WCA) for our weekly trash and recycling needs. The contract is reviewed and renewed annually by the HOA board to ensure residents receive the best value at the best price.
If you have questions or have issues with your service, please contact GFL directly:
- GFL Customer Support Phone: 816-380-5595
- GFL website to submit a webform request: https://gflenv.com/support/
- Please inform the HOA about your issues at firstname.lastname@example.org
Pickup is on Friday of each week. Items must be placed on the curb by 7am of your designated pickup day. Do not place trash cans and items on the sidewalk or or within 4 feet from another bin, car, etc. There may be times due to Holidays or inclement weather where trash pickup is delayed, but always good practice to have it out on Friday early just in case! GFL observed Holidays are listed as Independence Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas Day, New Year’s Day.
Household waste should be bagged before being placed in approved cans provided by GFL. Do not put yard waste in bins. If you place yard waste in your bins, you trash will not be picked up. See the Yard Waste section below for more instructions.
Recycling service is unlimited for Overland Park residents. If you fill up your recycling cart, you may place excess in another container labeled with the word “recycling” or the universal recycling symbol. Be aware of the items that are not accepted as Recycling.
Yard Waste Pickup
Due to a citywide mandate (Overland Park Trash & Recycling), yard waste removal is included with your base service. Yard waste is picked up weekly, year-round on the same day as your trash service.
Yard waste includes grass clippings, leaves and small tree trimming debris. Yard waste must placed in a rigid container no larger than 32 gallons clearly marked yard waste, placed in biodegradable/compostable paper bags, or be bundled. Each bag or container must weigh no more than 40 pounds per bag or rigid container. Plastic bags will not be picked up.
Each home can put out a combination of 10 paper bags or yard waste approved containers per week. If you need more than 10 bags picked up any single week, each bag over 10 needs a special tag which can purchased at Price Chopper, Hen House, or Ace Hardware.
Bulky Item Pickup Information
The city requires Trash Service providers to offer a bulky item pickup. No longer is it coordinated by the City of Overland Park. If you are interested, call GFL directly to coordinate special pickups, which may be subject to an additional charge payable by the resident.
