OKLAHOMA CITY – While thousands of Oklahoma City residents can expect their trash service dates to change in the new year, city officials are warning that bulk waste pickup service will also be changing in January.
On Thursday, the City of Oklahoma City announced that the bulk waste pickup service will shift by one week for the month of January.
Collections will begin on Jan. 8 instead of earlier in the month.
Officials say that residents who normally have bulk waste pickup on the first week of the month will have pickup scheduled for the week of Jan. 8, with everyone else also shifting back one week.
- Week 1 collection: Begins Jan. 8
- Week 2 collection: Begins Jan. 15
- Week 3 collection: Begins Jan. 22
- Week 4 collection: Begins Jan. 29.
Christmas trees may be included with other bulk waste for curbside pickup.
