Recycling

Pickup Details

  • Curbside Recycling is offered by Waste Connections in conjunction with your curbside trash pickup.
  • Recycling is picked up every other week on your regular scheduled trash day.
  • Just like your regular trash, it needs to be at the curb by 6 a.m. the day of your scheduled trash pick-up.
  • Recycling is picked up by a separate truck, so don't be alarmed if one is picked up earlier in the day than the other.
  • If you do not have a recycling cart and need a recycling cart, please email the Utility Clerk at Choctaw City Hall at 405-390-8198.
  • There is no charge for Recycling Carts.
