The City of Okmulgee will offer a Free Trash Day

The City of Okmulgee will be conducting a “Free Trash Day” at the Okmulgee Landfill on Saturday, October 31, 2015. The purpose of this event is to beautify our city by cleaning up trash that is visible along streets and on properties throughout the city.

On “Free Trash Day”, October 31, 2015 from 8:00AM to 12:00PM (noon), City of Okmulgee water and sewer account holders will be entitled to one pickup truck load (or the equivalent) of trash/refuse deposited free of charge at the Okmulgee Landfill. This benefit without charge is for the disposal of trash cleaned up on the account holder’s property and adjacent streets. It is not for the support of commercial entities such as contractors and rental property landlords.

Eligible account holders must present their most recent City of Okmulgee water bill AND a photo I.D. with matching name to that on the water bill (no exceptions) in order to gain access to the Okmulgee Landfill for the free disposal of one load of trash. Water bills listed in the name of a deceased account holder will NOT be accepted.

No trailers will be allowed on vehicles loaded with trash. Vehicles without trash will be permitted to enter with ONE trailer if the material hauled by the trailer does not exceed that which could be hauled in the bed of a standard pickup truck.

No tires will be accepted as part of this event. Hazardous materials, refrigerators, freezers, and air conditioners will not be accepted at the Landfill. Electronic waste, including but not limited to television sets and computer equipment including monitors, will not be accepted at the Landfill. When loading trash for hauling to the Landfill, all participants are encouraged to separate materials (metal, brush, other trash) to speed up the disposal process, and all are encouraged to cover their loads with tarps to prevent littering of streets and highways. This will be the only Free Trash event held in 2015.

Questions concerning the above information as well as a weather decision on the scheduled day of the event can be answered by calling the Okmulgee Landfill at (918) 733-455
