Live Christmas Tree

O CHRISTMAS TREE! HOW TO DISPOSE OF THEE?

Midwest City residents can dispose of live Christmas trees any time during the month of January at the Christmas tree drop off on Jim White Dr.; on the other side of Fire Station 6, which is at 8750 SE 15th St.

The trees are chipped and used for compost material so it is very important that you remove all lights, metal ornament hangers, and Christmas tree decorations from the tree before dropping it off.

QUARTERLY BULK WASTE COLLECTION SERVICE


The new quarterly, curbside bulk waste collection service kicks off this month!
 
Here are a few important things you need to know:
 
· You need to make sure your bulk waste is at the curb by 7 a.m. on the Monday of your collection week— but not before 5 p.m. on the Friday before your week.
 
· Once you place your bulk waste at the curb for your collection week, leave it out all week. The number of collections we will be making will determine when we can get to your street.
 
· Leave at least five feel of space on both sides of your bulk waste and make sure it is not near you mailbox, trees, electric box, gas meter, power lines or any other obstacle. If there is a parked vehicle in front of your bulk waste, we won’t be able to collect it.
 
· Make sure you don’t place any waste at your curb after the crews have passed by your house. We can only make one pass on each street in order to collect the bulk waste for everyone in your area.

· We will collection up to four cubic yards, which is about two pick-up loads or a large, 10-foot sofa. See example below.

UPDATE ON BOND PROJECTS

In August 2018, MWC voters approved four proposals for quality of life investments in the community. One of the proposals was for repairing and repaving residential streets. There are two phases of the repair projects. This past summer the City Council awarded a contract for $2,825,560 for the first round of residential concrete paving project as well as a contract for $4,488,907.25 for asphalt street paving projects. The photos above show some of the neighborhood street repair projects as well as one of the asphalt projects.
