LAWTON, OK (KSWO)- The City of Lawton Stormwater Management Division wants you to T.R.A.S.H. your trash!

  • Tie your bags to prevent blowing litter.
  • Recycle paper, glass and plastic.
  • Alert the City about illegal dumping.
  • Share excess paint, fertilizer and pesticides with neighbors and friends. 
  • Hold large items and hazardous waste like oil, batteries and appliance until annual Trash Off event.

Remember, waste on the ground is more than just a smelly problem.  When it rains, the pollution clogs storm drains, increases neighborhood flooding and spreads disease-causing bacteria. 

Report illicit discharges, leaks and spills to the Stormwater Hotline, 580-581-3565.   Learn more at Cityof.Lawton.OK.US or call 580-581-DIRT.
