ALTUS, OK (KSWO)- The City of Altus encourage residents to refrain from placing bulk trash items in the alley until further notice as the city currently does not have a contractor for bulk trash pick-up. City staff and leadership have been developing a plan for better bulk trash and debris disposal.
In the meantime, City of Altus is waiving the 1,500 pound limit that can be discarded for free at the landfill with a Altus utility bill and personal identification. Until further notice, Altus residents will be allowed to dispose an unlimited amount at the landfill approximately 8 miles west of Altus off of Highway 62. Landfill hours are Monday thru Friday from 7:30 am to 4 pm and on Saturdays from 8 am to 11:30 am.
Alleys must remain passable at all times to sanitation, utility service, and emergency vehicles.
