Trash and recycling removal services are provided to residents by private companies licensed with the City. Haulers licensed in Shawnee must provide their customers with a trash container and collect trash at least once a week.
Residents can put as much trash into the provided container as they can fit with the lid closed securely. Under the City code, yard waste is not included in the trash limit. Any trash that is outside the container must be paid for through the purchase of stickers that residents should place on each additional bag of trash outside the container.
Stickers can be purchased at City Hall, 11110 Johnson Dr., Monday - Friday 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the Clerks counter. You can also call your hauler directly to purchase stickers. Waste Management/Deffenbaugh customers can also purchase stickers at a variety of locations.
Residents experiencing problems with trash collection should notify the trash hauler directly of the problem.
In addition to trash, all residential haulers must also provide and collect recycling weekly or every two weeks. Residents will be charged by their selected hauler for trash and recycling services in a single fee.
Recycling is unlimited. You can put out additional recycling that exceeds your recycling container for no extra charge. Make sure to clearly mark on any additional recycling container that the contents are meant for recycling.
