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.

Kicking off the “Season” - Are YOU Ready?
Everyone ready for the “Season”? No? Well we, being the City and the Emergency Management group, aren’t enthused about it but we ARE ready for it. Of course we are talking about “Tornado Season”, that wonder time… err, TIMES of the year when Oklahoma weather can be a little over bearing. With some bad weather possible soon you should review your “Oklahoma Weather Kit” and get ready for the Spring time.
So first up let’s talk about that kit, your “Family Disaster Supply Kit” is the official name.

After a disaster, local officials and relief workers will be on the scene, but they cannot reach everyone immediately. You could get help in hours or it may take days. Your family will cope best by preparing for disaster before it happens. One thing to do in preparedness is assemble a 72-hour disaster supplies kit. Once disaster hits, you won’t have time to shop or search for supplies. But if you’ve gathered supplies in advance, your family can endure an evacuation or home confinement.

There are six basics you should stock in your home: water (one gallon per person per day) , food, first aid supplies, clothing and bedding, tools and emergency supplies, and special items.
Keep the items that you would most likely need during an evacuation in an easy to carry container such as a large covered trash container, a camping backpack, or a duffle bag.
Store your kit in a convenient place known to all family members. Keep a smaller version of the disaster supplies kit in your car.

Changed your stored water supply every six months so it stays fresh.

Rotate your stored food every six months.

Re-think your kit and family needs at least once a year. Replace batteries, update your clothes, etc.
Ask your physician or pharmacist about storing prescription medicines.

Next time we’ll talk about taking shelter, but until then, be safe and be aware!
