Twenty-five years ago, Pat Caskey spotted an opportunity to solve a problem for Kansas City residents. The community needed a solution to a new bill that was passed by the Missouri legislature. This bill would prohibit yard waste from entering Missouri landfills. In short, Kansas City would no longer collect yard waste and it would be up to homeowner to decide what to do with it. Knowing it wasn't feasible for most homeowners to start backyard composting, Pat was determined to provide a service that would fill the void left by the city.
In order to pursue this new venture, he first needed to get his family on board with the idea of leaving his job with a route based company. There were risks and uncertainty, but in the end, his knowledge of residential routes gave him the confidence to set forth a plan. His vision was to build a business that focused on service, neighborhood communities and the environment.
Today, Lawn-Corps has accomplished these goals and operates from a 37 acre pastoral recycling facility in Belton, Missouri. We continue to provide customers with residential yard waste pick up and we're the only green waste hauler in the Kansas City area to process yard waste into quality compost and mulch.
There has been a lot of trial and error over the past 25 years, but great pride is taken knowing Lawn-Corps started from a simple idea ... service.
