No, the barrels are composed of high-quality, food-grade HDPE and were previously used to ship food to the US from trade partners. The barrels may have scuff marks from shipping and handling, but each barrel is inspected to ensure the structural integrity of the barrel is not compromised. The barrels are then cleaned and outfitted with brand new fittings and screens. Although the barrel interior is cleaned with a pH-neutral soap, there may still be residual odors of the commodities originally shipped in the barrels, such as olives and pickles. The odors will dissipate over time, but until then, you may crave pizza when you're around your new rain barrel! The barrel shapes will also vary depending on what barrels are available during the ordering period.
Yes, the rain barrels come with a 1-year warranty on the material and workmanship. The warranty is voided if the rain barrel is not properly winterized prior to a freeze event.

Yes! You can still reap the benefits of owning a rain barrel without gutters. Walk around your home during a rain event and observe where rain water drips from your roof line. Remember the area where you see the most drainage and place your rain barrel under that spot.

No, each homeowner will be responsible for installing their new rain barrel.
Roll your container to the curb by 7 a.m. on your collection day. The container is emptied mechanically from inside a Republic Services® vehicle cab.

The container is set back in place, and the Republic Services truck moves on to the next stop.
Be sure your container is at the curb by 7 a.m. on your collection day to ensure collection. Or, you may set your container out the night before, if you wish.

Smart Choice will be a group of programs and services, implemented over time, that use data provided by our upgraded smart meters. Smart Choice will help you better track and manage your utility usage as well as allow The City of Edmond to provide enhanced services and programs to you.
Smart meters record your water and energy usage the same as our previous meters do. However, unlike our previous meters that require manual monthly readings, your smart meter will now transmit your utility usage to the City daily. This will make your usage data more accessible to both you and the utility.
The meters use a low-powered radio to send your usage readings to the City of Edmond electric and water offices through a secure mesh network. This data is then processed and validated so you can see your previous days’ hourly usage, as well as long-term historical data. The meters will also notify us if there is an issue so we can better serve you.
In conjunction with a new web portal, launching in the fall of 2022, this enhanced technology will allow you to access the previous days’ hourly usage for your water and electric service. Additionally, historical hourly usage will be available to view and graph. Various tools will help you track, compare, and monitor your usage so you can better control your utilities. In time, we will be offering additional programs and services under the Smart Choice program.
The upgrade to smart meters will help the City of Edmond’s electric and water systems make better use of the current infrastructure serving you and will better predict new infrastructure needs, reducing upfront costs while also meeting long-term service needs. Additionally, through the various alerts and alarms generated by the meters, we can serve you better by reacting to service issues more quickly.
Starting in June 2022, the installation of smart meters will be done in segments over 18 months to 2 years. Approximately 2 to 4 weeks prior to your scheduled installation date, you will be sent a notification letter with detailed information about the installation process.
Your utility bill will still look the same. Through the web portal, launching in the fall of 2022, you will be able to access your previous day’s usage readings and other detailed information about your bill.
The City of Edmond has always worked diligently to ensure the safety of customer data. First, the meters do not collect, store, or transmit personally identifiable information. Second, the mesh network used to transmit the data is a secure and encrypted network. Next, once received by the City, the data is processed and stored on secure servers. Finally, the City does not release any water or electric data without the customer’s written permission.
While smart meters will inform the customer and the City of Edmond utilities of hourly consumption data, they cannot and do not identify which specific device in your property that using water or energy. The detailed consumption history is to help you monitor the devices you may be using and their impact on your bill. It also provides a way for the City of Edmond to better manage our electric and water systems, as well as engineer and plan for future system improvements.
Please call our Utility Customer Service Department at (405) 359-4541 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Edmond customers receive a 96-gallon refuse (trash) cart, a 96-gallon recycling collection cart and unlimited household hazardous waste (HHW) collections.
It depends, as this requirement comes from a change in shingle manufacturers’ installation instructions. Some, not all, shingle manufacturers now state (in their instructions) that their product cannot be installed on solid lumber sheathing wider than a 1x6. This is due to the possibility for expansion/contraction of the deck boards wider than a 1x6. The code does state that new roof covering material (shingles) must be installed in accordance with the manufacturers’ installation instructions. These instructions may also address the gap between boards and may require an overlay of OSB or plywood if the gaps are too wide.
The 2015 International Residential Code (IRC) does not require you to remove the existing deck material prior to installation of a new sheathing substrate except in very unusual circumstances where the existing roof framing is inadequate. Roof replacements do require the removal of all existing layers of roof covering (shingles).
Yes, per IRC section R905.2.8.5 drip edge is required for asphalt shingle installations. Drip edge must be installed in accordance with the manufacturers’ installation instructions.
If the chimney measures more than 30 inches wide, perpendicular to the slope, then a cricket is required per the IRC section R903.2.2.
All requirements of the code are enforced and in effect even if a specific permit or inspection are not required.
No, currently it is not specifically required by code unless mandated by a shingle manufacturers’ installation instructions for certain applications.
Yes, multiple code approved options are available per IRC section R905 for asphalt installations.
Urban Forestry is stewardship of the local environment through planning for and management of trees growing throughout a city. These trees may include individuals or groups of trees growing in locations such as residential areas, street right-of-ways, park land, around businesses, on undeveloped lots, or really anywhere that trees might grow within an urban area. Another major component of urban forestry is education about and advocacy for the many environmental, economic, health, and social benefits that trees and natural ecosystems provide.
For information about Urban Forestry in Edmond, view the links below:
The Urban Forestry Department offers a tree consultation service for people who live inside Edmond City Limits. To inquire about visiting on site with an Edmond urban forester, call Leigh at 359-4759 or Jesse at 359-4739.
Newly planted trees often experience “transplant shock”, or stress caused by root disturbance at planting and adjustment to the new growing environment. Transplant shock may be avoided by ensuring that resources are readily available during those first few years while the tree is getting established in its new location. Here are a few tips to help your tree make it to establishment:
To learn more maintenance tips for trees, view Tips for Growing Healthy Trees.
Any trees growing outside of the public right-of-way are not eligible for tree work administered by the city, except through the CDBG Neighborwoods program. However, the Urban Forestry Department has a program for assisting with high risk tree issues on street trees, or trees with the trunk originating within the public right-of-way. To inquire about this program, call Leigh at 359-4759 or Jesse at 359-4739.

However, property owners are responsible for trees on their property, as well as in the right-of-way adjacent to their property. Provisions about maintenance responsibility for trees within the City may be found in Title 2, Chapter 92.
While the City cannot recommend specific vendors, the Urban Forestry Department recommends hiring only trained tree care professionals for tree issues. When choosing a tree care professional, the following are recommended:
The City of Edmond offers multiple opportunities for free trees throughout the year. See below for more information:
