DT)--Enid SPCA, American Humane and a network of local animal foster homes teamed up Tuesday to send 23 dogs in need of forever homes to Colorado, where adoptive families are awaiting their arrival. Vickie Grantz, executive director of Enid SPCA, told Enid News and Eagle the opportunity for the interstate transfer came available in the wake of Hurricane Laura, when Enid SPCA agreed to accept a shipment of cats to free up room in Louisiana shelters for animals displaced by the storm. In return, American Humane offered to bring its specially-equipped animal trailer back to Enid to move the 23 unadopted dogs to Colorado, where there is not a surplus of adoptable animals.

YW)--City of Enid Solid Waste Services officials announced the transition of green yard waste polycarts to its Fall and Winter schedule. Beginning Monday, 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.

WC)--The City of Enid will move “Operation Cleanup” to ward three beginning Monday. Grapple trucks will run each Monday throughout the month of October to pick up bulk trash, brush, and debris as part of the neighborhood beautification campaign within Ward 3. This cleanup project will be a free service to all residents within Ward 3.

 

Guidelines for “Operation Cleanup”

 

  1. Bulk trash and brush/debris must be placed 10 feet within the curb in the front of the residence.
  2. Keep trash and brush/debris piles 10 feet away from objects (e.g. mailboxes, water meters, sprinklers, cars, basketball goals).
  3. Keep trash and brush/debris in separate piles, as well as 10 feet away from each other.
  4. Do not place trash under any low hanging trees or power lines.

 

The City currently plans to continue “Operation Cleanup” into Ward 4 later this year and Ward 5 in February, weather permitting. Upcoming ward cleanup projects will be announced in the future. As a reminder, residents can continue to call for bulk trash pickup in other wards during this time with a normal charge. For questions, concerns, or additional information, contact Solid Waste Services at (580)-616-7300.
