YW)--City of Enid Solid Waste Services officials announced today the transition of green yard waste polycarts to its Fall and Winter schedule. Beginning the week of October 5th, yard waste will be picked up on the same day as household trash. As a reminder, place the green polycarts container at least ten feet of clearance from other containers, parked vehicles, street lampposts, trees, mailboxes and other obstructions at the curb no later than 7:30 a.m. with your household trash.

 

The City-issued green polycarts are used only for yard waste such as leaves, twigs, and grass. The green containers will not be emptied if they contain household trash, due to yard waste being placed in a different field for composting.

 

The green polycarts may be purchased for a one-time fee of $60.00. The $60.00 fee will be charged to a resident’s water bill after they receive the container. Those who wish to obtain a polycart or an additional polycart, can contact Solid Waste Services at (580) 616-7300. For additional information on the green yard waste polycart guidelines, go to: Enid.org/yardwaste.
