Poly Cart woe's and clean streets
Poly Cart what a waste
Here are a few things you need to know about poly carts:
The City Commission voted to begin using poly carts for trash disposal city wide for all citizens of Shawnee at the meeting on June 4, 2007.
Yard waste will be picked up on Wednesdays
The commission has chosen a plan which also calls for green waste pickup (yard clippings, etc.) on a weekly basis. The commission needs to contact Allied Waste and remind them of this plan.
Be sure and call Allied Waste if your yard waste has not been picked up recently at 275-9061.
The city is supplementing this plan for the first year but will cut that supplement in subsequent years. The $12 monthly fee is expected to go to $13 in July, 2008, $13.75 in 2009, $14.25 in 2010 and $14.55 in 2011.
Remember that Allied Waste representatives are available at 405-275-9061
You can also call the Public Works Service Center at 878-1662
The City of Shawnee runs their own street sweeper on a rotating schedule across the City. Questions related to street sweeping should be directed to the 405-878-1537.
