Sanitation Services

The Board of Aldermen takes pride in the fact that the City pays for all residential refuse, recycling and yard waste pick up for our residents. Effective January 1, 2009, the Board of Aldermen approved a contract for these sanitation services through Waste Management. Refuse, recycling and yard waste are picked up on TUESDAYS in Oakland.  An explanation of the new service is included here for your reference.

All three services will be provided on Tuesday of each week. The first pickup day will be January 6. Your trash can be placed in resident-owned containers or a 96 gallon toter supplied by Waste Management at a cost of $3.00 per month, which would be billed directly to your home.

Recycling can be co-mingled in an 18 gallon bin, which will be delivered to you the last week of December. The City has applied for a grant to furnish 65 gallon toters for recycling. When they arrive, Waste Management has agreed to assemble and deliver them. You will be notified when they arrive. Until that time, you may place any extra recycling items that do not fit in the 18 gallon bins into other containers labeled "recycling" or in cardboard boxes or bags next to the recycling bins. A list of accepted recycling materials is attached.

Yard waste can be placed in resident owned containers, paper bags or a 96 gallon toter, which can be supplied by Waste Management at a cost of $3.00 per month directly billed to the resident.

A bulky trash item can be placed at the curb on the last trash pickup day of the month and will be taken away at no charge. There is a limit of one item per household. Additional items or items that need special handling can be scheduled for a cost of $45.

Appliances (White Goods) can be picked up by appointment only and the cost for this service is $25 per item. Please call 314-506-4700.

Please have all trash at the curb by 8 AM on your pickup day.

IESI should pick up their recycling bins on the last service day in December.

Christmas trees will be picked up with regular service on January 6 and January 13. Please call our Customer Service Center at 314-506-4700 for missed pickups, rental of toters, appliances and additional bulky pickups. Waste Management thanks you!
