Ponca City-

Autumn Leaf Collection will begin on November 15, 2021 and end on January 21, 2022.  Residents who want to have their leaves removed are asked to please follow these guidelines:

Bagged leaves placed in the regular refuse collection area will be collected free of charge.  Bags will be picked up at the rate of 10 bags per pickup day.

Bagged leaves may be collected by special pick up anytime of the year by calling Solid Waste at 580.767.0411. Special pickups carry a minimum charge of $39.48.

Loose leaves should be placed within three feet of the front curb, but not in the street gutter.  If leaves are raked or blown into the street gutter they may clog the storm drains.  LEAVES FOUND BLOWN OR RAKED INTO THE STREET MAY RESULT IN A CITATION (PER CITY CODE).  DO NOT place loose leaves or compost enclosures in the alley right-of-way, so alleys are not blocked for utility access.

Mulched leaves or leaves mixed with grass WILL NOT be collected except by special pick up.  Call Solid Waste at 580.767.0411 to schedule a special pick up.  Special pickups carry a minimum charge of $39.48.

The City’s Leaf Collection Crew will be working the City section by section and asks for the public’s patience during this time.  It may take two weeks or more to collect the leaves due to the large volumes expected.
