Northeast Johnson County morning roundup



Mission reminds residents that Deffenbaugh pickup schedule won’t be delayed by New Year’s holiday. Christmas and New Year’s Day falling on the weekend this year has thrown a minor wrinkle in the way Deffenbaugh is handling waste pickup in some northeast Johnson County neighborhoods. Typically when there’s a holiday, Deffenbaugh will bump its normal pickup schedule back a day. But with Christmas and New Year’s Days on the weekend, the company is keeping its standard pickup schedule in Mission. “Regular service schedules will be maintained, so residents should not wait to set out their items an extra day,” said Mission Public Information Officer Emily Randel.
