Q:How does the automated polycart system work?
Polycarts are for residential use. If a resident moves they must leave their polycart or they will be charged for it.
There is no charge for the first polycart. If you need a second polycart, the charge will be $4 a month. The charge will be placed on your water bill. Contact Customer Service to order extra polycarts at 405 878-1560.

If you are physically unable to handle the polycart and need help, please contact Central Disposal at 405 275-5854. They will ask you to submit a Doctor's note stating that you are physically unable to take the polycart to the curb, and they will pick it up house-side.

On collection day, the polycart should be placed in the proper location in front of your house by 7am. Place the polycart with the handle away from the curb. You may remove your polycart after the garbage has been collected by 5pm.

Do not put your polycart next to a mailbox or within 12 feet of a parked car. Remember, the idea is that an automated arm will grab the polycart and empty it. No one wants it grabbing something else.

Do not put your polycart in the alley or back of your house. Alleyway's are too narrow and dangerous for the automated trucks.

For any questions please call Central Disposal at 405 275-5854.
