Trash & Recycling

Solid Waste Disposal

Solid waste collection is currently the responsility of the homeowner or renter. The City of Leeton does not manage solid waste collection. Two common companies used by residents in the community are Heartland Waste (660-429-1040) and Vic's Disposal (660-747-2088).

Recycling

Recycling is provided in large bins in the parking lot of the Leeton School. Here, residents may drop off their paper, cardboard, plastic and tin (aluminum) recycling for collection. This program is provided via a grant of the Region F Solid Waste District of the Missouri Department of Natural Resources.
