Sanitation Service FAQ

The City provides one 96 gallon polycart to every residential property or commercial property not using a commercial container.  Occupants can acquire a cart of a different capacity, or acquire additional carts for $5 per month fee per additional cart by calling 918-338-4224. 

Every owner and occupant of a residential property, or commercial property with cart service, will have refuse collected and disposed of once a week on a scheduled collection day as set on this map. When a holiday falls on a scheduled collection day, the affected route  will be serviced on Wednesday of the same week.  City Holidays can be found on the City of Bartlesville homepage. 

All residential customers must have their carts placed at the collection point no later than 6:00 a.m. the morning of collection.  All residential carts must be removed from the collection point no later than 10:00 p.m. the day of collection.  All commercial customers must have carts placed at the collection point no later than 5:00 a.m. the morning of collection.

All waste is to be bagged and placed inside the cart. Carts should be loosely packed so that contents will discharge freely when the cart is inverted. 

Any residential waste that is outside the cart must be bagged or bundled, and must have the appropriate refuse disposal sticker affixed to each bag or bundle outside the cart (green sticker for yard waste, red for household).   Stickers are available for purchase at both local Quik Trip locations and City Hall.  STICKERS ARE NOT ALLOWED FOR COMMERCIAL CUSTOMERS. 

Residential cart rates for regulation curbside collection are as follows:

96 Gallon Cart $15.50  
64 Gallon Cart $13.50
32 Gallon Cart $11.50

The monthly fee for each additional cart shall be $5.00 per cart per month.
The fee for each "red" refuse sticker shall be $2.50 per sticker.
The fee for each "green" yard waste sticker shall be $1.00 per sticker.

Commercial customers using a two or three yard container have a minimum collection of once a week with a maximum of six times. Monthly fees are determined by container size and frequency of service. These containers are for commerical use only.  Charges are as follows:

Container Size                                                           Collections Per Week
