NORMAL TRASH PICK-UP WILL RESUME ON YOUR NEXT SCHEDULED PICK-UP DAY.

Carts can be out as early as 6 P.M. the day before your collection, and no later than 7 A.M. on your collection day to ensure prompt service.

To schedule one of two free bulk collections call (580) 581-3413 and our office staff will gladly walk you through the process. Residents need to schedule at least 2 weeks in advance due to limited amount we can service daily. The day that your bulk collection will be picked up is determined by your address. A bulk collection map can be found here.

Our operators place the orange tags on carts to notify the resident that they are having an issue servicing your cart. Common problems include: Cart overfull, the cart should have all trash inside the cart and lid able to close; Cart in unsafe place, carts should be placed a minimum of 5 feet away from all objects to include vehicles, mailboxes, fences, trees, and other utilities.        

Additional carts are available for $5 per month per additional cart. Signees are required to keep the additional cart fee for minimum 12 months. Please when you receive your 2nd cart allow at least 5ft between them on day of pick up. 

For lost or damaged cart assistance contact our Solid Waste Collection office at (580) 581-3413 or 3428.

Solid Waste Collection offers house side pickup, meaning that those enrolled in this service do not have to place trash cans at the curb. Workers will instead collect a resident's garbage from the side or front of their home, where the trash can is typically kept on off days, and then return it to that same spot after dumping.

Those with disabilities wishing to enroll will incur no additional cost. They are simply requested to fax a doctors note to Solid Waste Collection at 580.354.0196. Notes may also be hand-delivered or sent by mail to the Revenue Services Division: 212 SW 9th Street, Lawton OK, 73501.

Those without disabilities wishing to enroll in this service may do so for $4 a month. Please call 580.581.3413 for additional information.

Carts should be placed in the street, at your curbside and have at least 5 feet clearance of any obstructions on all sides (this still applies if you have two carts). The wheels should be facing the curb.
