ENID, OK – The Solid Waste Department will resume its yard waste collection service on Wednesday, March 7, 2018. Residents are encouraged to place all green poly-carts curbside by 7:30am on Wednesdays.
Officials said access hours to the landfill will change beginning Monday, March 12. The landfill will be open from 7:00 am to 6:00 pm Monday thru Friday and on Saturday from 8:00am to 4:00pm.
The yard waste containers are normally emptied on Wednesdays, beginning in mid-March, and continue through September. Residents must place the green poly carts on the curb, the same day as the household trash, during holiday weeks.
The City of Enid issues green poly-carts for yard waste such as leaves, twigs, and grass. The green poly-carts may be purchased for a one time fee of $60. The $60 fee will be charged to your water bill after you receive the container. You can contact Customer Service at 580-616-7300 if you would like to obtain a yard waste container.
The City of Enid collects the yard waste from these poly-carts using automated trucks that are equipped with a specially designed arm that grasps and empties the carts. There are no additional monthly fees for the collection of these containers.
