Tree dump

Autumn leaves and branches may be taken to the city tree dump, located southeast of town on 165th Street. Stop by City Hall and pick up a key as the tree dump is kept locked. All leaves must be loose and may not be left in plastic bags. Please do not leave large logs. The city tree dump is not for commercial use. Thank you for your patience as we work to make the gates easier to open.

Recycling bins

Please remember that the blue recycling bin is for recycling only. Do not put trash in it as Osage Waste & Disposal will not pick it up.
