Trash Service Reminders

Coweta Trash Truck



In order to provide efficient and timely pickup we ask that the following regulations be observed:


BAGS ARE REQUIRED:  All solid waste must be placed in trash bags with a capacity of 33 gallons or less and tied shut, even if it is placed in a trash can.  If the waste is not in plastic trash bags, sanitation personnel are not required to pick it up.


COLLECTION TIME:  All items to be picked up must be placed at the curb by 7:00 a.m. on the regular collection day.  Do not place trash out more than 24 hours prior to your scheduled collection date.  The exact time of collection depends on the volume of trash placed out and the number of crews picking up trash that day, so pick up times can vary on any given day.  There is no solid waste pick up service on holidays observed by the City of Coweta.


HOUSEHOLD WASTE:   Limit of fourteen (14) 33 gallon bags of waste, per household, per pickup day.  Loose items in a trash can, or on the ground, will not be picked up.  All tree limbs, brush, and lumber must be cut in four foot lengths and tied into one (1) foot diameter bundles.  Limbs larger than two (2) feet in diameter will require a bulk pick up for an additional fee.  Large items that do not meet the criteria above must be scheduled for a bulk pickup for an additional fee.


BULK WASTE COLLECTION:   Bulk trash is picked up on Wednesdays.  To schedule a bulk trash pickup you must call (918) 486-2189 by 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday.  Items must be placed at the curb by 7:00 a.m.  Items that will be picked up include general household furniture and appliances (refrigerators must have Freon removed from a certified vendor) and water heaters.  Fees for bulk pick up are $5.00 per item, $15.00 per pick up load, and/or $50.00 per dump truck load.  Please contact (918) 486-2189 if there are questions about items needing to be picked up.


ITEMS NOT COLLECTED:   Hazardous waste of any kind which can include but is not limited to: oil, gas or diesel fuels, car batteries, tires, medical waste, paint, roofing material, remodeling materials, bags of dirt, rocks and/or concrete, or any other substance or item deemed hazardous by the City of Coweta.


If you have problems with dogs or cats bothering your garbage, please contact Animal Control Officer at (918) 486-2121.  Residents are responsible to clean up any messes made by animals which occur near your property.


We appreciate your cooperation.  If you have any questions or comments, please contact the Coweta Public Works Authority at (918) 486-8073.
