PRESS RELEASE OKC free landfill day postponed


The Utilities Department is postponing Oklahoma City’s free landfill day scheduled for Saturday, May 2, because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Utilities will consider a new date once restrictions have eased.

Since the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, solid waste facilities across the U.S. have changed operations for resident and employee safety. Earlier in April, the City suspended its pick-up program for bagged trash, including bagged trash set out on bulky waste pick-up days. All bagged trash must now be put into Big Blue trash carts.

The City generally hosts two free landfill days for solid waste customers each year at four participating landfills. The Utilities Department will notify customers of the makeup date.
