Help for Overflowing Carts

Holiday Trash

Americans throw away about 25% more trash in the five weeks between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day. That’s an estimated extra 25 million tons of waste!

If you expect your cart to overflow with wrapping paper, boxes, and holiday leftovers, Solid Waste Services has a solution. Residential customers can schedule a bulk pickup of City-Coded Bags by calling (405) 359-4541. There is no fee for bulk collection of city-coded bags.


Here’s what you need to know:
  • City-Coded bags can be purchased at many Edmond area grocery, discount and home improvement stores. See a full list of locations on the City-Coded Bags webpage.
  • Please keep in mind that the collection of excess city-coded bags will occur during the bulk collection schedule for your location, not at the same time as your normal collection.
  • The cost of these bags covers the pick-up and disposal fee - so, we can’t collect other bags or boxes. Thank you for your cooperation.
