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.

Winter Weather Preparation Time is Now
Winter weather will be here before we know it and it presents many safety challenges. Although staying indoors as much as possible can help reduce the risk of falls on the ice or traffic crashes, you may also face potential indoor hazards.

Being prepared and following safety precautions can help you stay safe and warm through the winter season. These simple, low-cost steps that individuals and families can take to be ready include setting aside emergency supplies, making a family emergency plan and staying informed about local conditions.

Additional winter safety tips include:

- Keep space heaters at least three feet from other objects and never leave space heaters unattended.
- Test all smoke and carbon monoxide alarms to make certain they are working properly.
- During a power outage, use flashlights as lighting sources.
- Avoid exertion as cold weather puts extra strain on your heart. Remember to stay hydrated as well.
- Make sure your home address is visible and take a few minutes to clear snow away from fire hydrants.
- When utilizing alternate heating sources, such as your fireplace, woodstove or space heater, take the necessary safety precautions.
- Keep a fire extinguisher handy; ensuring everyone knows how to use it properly.
- Use portable generators cautiously. Make sure they are operated only out-of-doors in a well ventilated area. Refuel a generator only after it has cooled. Do not connect your generator to your home’s electrical system except through an approved transfer switch installed in compliance with the local electrical code.

Be smart, get a head start!
