Trash Services (Sanitation Division)
The Sanitation Division is responsible for providing refuse pickup services to more than 33,000 residential solid waste customers. Residents receive twice weekly refuse service, either Monday/Thursday or Tuesday/Friday.
Some interesting stats: Sanitation collects approximately 3,100 tons of refuse monthly. This varies throughout the year based on yard waste. The average Broken Arrow household generates about 203 pounds of solid waste per month.

It will reduce the volume of waste to be disposed by 90 percent and generates valuable renewable energy, resulting in a net reduction of greenhouse gas emissions when compared to conventional landfill practices.
