YW)--Green yard waste collection in Enid will transition to the spring and summer schedule beginning April 5. Residents are reminded to place the green polycart container containing yard waste at the curb, and at least four feet away from other containers, parked vehicles, street lampposts, trees, mailboxes and other obstructions, no later than 7:30 a.m. on Mondays. The city-issued green polycarts are used for yard waste such as leaves, twigs and grass. Because yard waste is placed in a different field for composting, the green polycarts will not be emptied if they contain household trash. Green polycarts may be purchased for a one-time fee of $60, which will be charged to the 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 guidelines, go to www.Enid.org/yardwaste.
