The City of Hesston is excited to announce we have contracted with a new company to handle our
residential trash and recycling needs. Nisly Brothers, Inc. is a locally owned, family run business that has
been in operation in South Central Kansas for close to 60 years. The purpose of this letter is to highlight
some of the benefits you will see with Nisly Brothers, Inc., to address the changes you will see in the 2016
Trash and Recycling Schedule, and to outline the transition from our current provider that will occur at
the end of the year.
Nisly Brothers, Inc. is a customer service oriented company that provides competitive rates that will allow
the City to keep rates flat for the foreseeable future. In addition to the continuation of single stream
recycling, Nisly will also pick up additional normal residential trash that won’t fit in the trash cart and bulk
items like furniture and appliances left at the curb. Check out our website for detailed information on
this topic. We will also keep our popular annual City-Wide Cleanup day that occurs each summer.
2016 Trash and Recycling Schedule:
In your December utility bill, you will receive the 2016 Trash and Recycling Schedule. This will let you
know when your trash and recycling will be picked up next year and which holidays will alter your pick-up
day. Trash pick-up will not change - it will be picked up every Wednesday. Recycling will be picked up
every other Wednesday, with one change. Residents living north of Old Highway 81 will have their
recycling picked up starting January 6th and every other Wednesday after that. Residents living south of
Old Highway 81 will have their recycling picked up starting January 13th and every other Wednesday
The holiday schedule for trash and recycling pickup will be different. The calendar you will receive will
have all 2016 holidays clearly marked. If a holiday occurs on M-T-W, the trash and recycling service will
be picked up on Thursday of that week.
In mid-December Nisly will send out a separate mailing that will introduce their company and further
outline the details of the transition to their service. Nisly will begin dropping off trash and recycling carts
on December 28th, 29th, and 30th. Trash carts will be green and recycle carts will be tan, both will be
marked with the Nisly Brothers, Inc. name. Please, do not use the Nisly Brothers, Inc. carts until the first
pick-up in January.
On Wednesday, December 30th Waste Connections will make their last pick up of both trash and recycling.
We ask that you leave your Waste Connections trash and recycle carts out Wednesday, December 30th. Waste Connection crews will be in town during this time and will pick up their carts.
This information, any updates, and a complete listing of benefits will be posted here on the City website. If you have questions please contact Jason at 620-327-4412.
