The City will hold its next free residential yard debris collection the week of Dec. 5-9. The event is typically held twice each year, in the spring and fall, to help Bartlesville solid waste utility customers dispose of dead leaves and other yard debris for no extra cost.
“Bartlesville residents can put their bagged yard debris or bundled tree limbs at their normal trash collection point on their normal trash day for collection,” said Public Works Director Keith Henry. “Our crews will come by and pick them up that day. It might not be the same truck that picks up the trash but rather another truck that will come by later in the day.”
The collection is for the following items only:
- Lawn clippings
- Limbs and branches if cut in lengths no longer than four feet and bundled (may not exceed 50 pounds)
During this week only, yard debris bags will not require yard waste stickers, and clear or colored bags are allowed. The collection is for private residences only; no commercial collections will be made. There is no limit on the number of bags a resident can put out for the collection. Extra bags or items of household refuse outside the cart must have the red refuse sticker attached.
