Trash & Recycling
Curb / One-Cart Recycling Program
ln partnership with American Waste Control, the One Cart Recycling program was implemented as an easy and convenient option for residents to recycle at no additional cost. The single cart program allows Jenks' residents to put loose recyclables into city trash carts with bags of trash. Trash is to be bagged so that recyclables are not contaminated.
Recyclables such as paper, plastic, cardboard, and aluminum can be placed loosely at the bottom of the same cart with regular bags of trash. Trash and recyclables are transported together in the same container on the same pickup day. "Mr. Murph," American Waste Control's recyclable sorting machine, separates the different materials when it reaches their facility.
In addition to the one cart program, residents may recycle at Mr. Murph dumpsters around town at no cost. All Mr. Murph locations, including old Abitibi dumpsters, accept the following:
- Aluminum Cans
- Paper (including phone books)
- Steel Cans
