New Oklahoma City trash pickup days start Monday

Post Date:02/01/2018 12:48 PM

Some Oklahoma City trash pickup customers are preparing themselves for a big change – trash day change, that is.

As of Monday, more than 90,000 of the City’s solid waste customers will have a new trash day or monthly bulky trash pick-up day.

Customers may look at their current City of Oklahoma City water bill or visit to see if they have a new pickup day.

The Utilities Department is making the changes to improve trash and bulk waste collection services.

The City mailed two sets of postcards to customers alerting them of the change, and has posted the information to Twitter, Facebook and Nextdoor.
