New Automated Sanitation Truck Coming Soon


The City of Sallisaw will be purchasing an auto-loading residential trash truck within the next few months. In order to ensure that we are able to empty your container, there are certain guidelines that must be followed.

When we begin using the new truck it will gradually be implemented throughout the community. In an effort to have a smooth transition, we are taking this opportunity to familiarize residents ahead of time with procedures.  

  • Polycarts must be placed within 2 to 3 feet of the street with the lid opening facing the street.
  • All trash must be bagged and must be contained in the polycart so that the lid can close properly.  No additional trash on top of, or next to the polycart. 
  • If there are two (2) or more polycarts, they must be placed at least two (2) feet apart.
  • If you find that you need an additional polycart(s), the charge for each additional is $5.50 per month.
  • Do not place polycarts next to fire hydrants or gas meters, or next to any obstructions such as parked cars or mailboxes.  If you have a question about placement of your polycart, please contact the Sanitation Superintendent and he will schedule a time to come and visit with you on site.
  • Polycarts must be placed curbside by 6:00 a.m. on the scheduled day of collection.
  • All polycarts must be removed from the curb within 24 hours.

We appreciate your cooperation as we make this transition.
