Curbside Trash Services

The City of Basehor has a contract with Waste Management to provide solid waste disposal services using automated poly-carts which allow for more efficient service and a clean look for our city. 


Trash and recycling service has a combined monthly rate of $17.72. 

Trash & Recycling Carts
