If you occasionally have an overflow that your trash carts will not hold, you may place the excess in city-coded bags that may be purchased at Edmond retail stores. Up to six (6) city-coded bags may be placed next to the trash cart on your normal collection day for automatic collection. If the number of city-coded bags exceeds six (6), you will need to schedule a bulk pickup by calling 359-4541. Please keep in mind that the collection of excess city-coded bags will occur during the bulk collection schedule for your location, not at the same time as your normal collection. There is no fee for bulk collection of city-coded bags.
Purchasing City-Coded Bags
The 30-gallon,city-coded bags are thicker and stronger than regular trash bags. Packages of 10 bags are available for $1.50 per bag. This cost includes the cost of the bags and the collection and disposal of the contents. Bags can be purchased from the following local grocery, drug, and home improvement stores:
City of Edmond Utility Customer Service - 7 N. Broadway
Crest - 15th Street and Santa Fe Street
Homeland - Danforth Road and Bryant Avenue

Request an Additional Cart
If you find that you are using the city-coded bags frequently, you might consider requesting a second collection cart. An additional cart is $4.15 per month. The carts hold the equivalent of three or four city-coded bags.
