This spring weather has been absolutely fantastic. It’s
great seeing so many friends and neighbors out enjoying the weather, running, riding
bikes or taking their dogs for a walk and enjoying the fresh air.
As the number of people walking their dogs has increased, so has the reported incident of dogs off leash, or owners not properly disposing of their animal’s solid waste while out on walks. Please be respectful of not only the homeowner, but everyone who is walking through the neighborhood and ensure to dispose of your pets waste.
It also does not go unnoticed to the many pet owners who consistently dispose of their pets solid waste, and we thank you!
Let’s all come together, neighbor helping neighbor and continue making Glenhurst a great community.
Thank You So Much
OKC Suspends bagged trash service - effective april 6
As a public utility, we are committed to the safety of our customers and our employees. To safeguard our employees safety, beginning on Monday, April 6, OKC Utilities Department will stop collecting bagged trash and grass clippings set out at the curb.
All regular trash, recycling and bulky waste service will remain the same.
Here's what you need to know: Beginning April 6, all trash - including grass clippings - must be bagged and put inside your Big Blue trash carts. Any trash that is bagged and set out for collection outside your Big Blue trash carts will not be picked up. Crews will leave a tag on the cart reminding customers of this new guideline. Please do NOT use your recycling cart for trash, and do NOT put grass or other trash loose in your Big Blue trash cart. The change is being made to help keep employees who handle bagged trash safe from contamination during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Each customer is allowed up to four total Big Blue carts, plus a single recycling cart. This includes the two carts that come with your regular trash service, plus two additional Big Blue carts, which you can order upon request. If you need an additional cart, please call Utilities Customer Service at (405) 297-2833 and order one. For the duration of the COVID-19 emergency, the Utilities Department will waive its excess cart fees. Once the emergency is declared over, customers may return the additional carts, or keep them at a monthly fee of $2.25 per cart.
Other considerations: If you use a commercial contractor for your landscaping service, please ask your contractor to take away any bagged landscape waste with them. One alternative to bagging grass is to mulch it and use it for compost or allow it to sit on top of the grass as a moisture barrier. Grass is not to be swept or blown down the City’s storm drains. For more information, or to order a cart, call Utilities Customer Service at (405) 297-2833.
