March is a big month here at Lawn-Corps. It marks the beginning of spring, which is when our wheels start rolling. Appropriately, we start off green, beginning our weekly curbside collection on St Patricks Day, March 17.
It’s been 22 years since we celebrated St Patrick’s Day by introducing a very “green” Lawn-Corps at the Brookside St Patricks Day Parade. “Reduce, reuse, recycle” was taking root in Missouri and when the law changed in January of 1992, Lawn-Corps took a leap into the new industry of green.
A lot has changed since then. Within 6 months from when this picture was taken we had gone from a homemade side board trailer to trash trucks. Today, Lawn-Corps owns and operates a 37 acre yard-waste processing facility in Belton, Missouri. We have become the only green waste hauler in South Kansas City that collects and processes yard waste into high end products such as compost and organic mulches. The most profound change however is that Kansas City residents have become educated in the importance of recycling through the services we've provided. Their decisions regarding recycling and a greener city have become second nature and what's more important, are now being passed on to their children.
Today, we’re happy to be on the other side of “green”, no longer a novice but after 22 years of serving you and our community, we’re proud to be a proven leader in Kansas City’s yard waste recycling, committed to providing you with a quality service based on trust and performance.
