Inundated by fall leaves? Remember to properly dispose of your leaves by bagging, mulching or composting them. Do not blow or rake leaves into the street or storm sewers. Not only is it a violation of City of Broken Arrow code, but storm sewers clogged with leaves, grass clippings and other debris create flooding hazards.
Section 12-6 of the Code of Ordinances addresses unlawful deposits: “It shall be unlawful for any person to throw, sweep or otherwise deposit, into or upon the streets, alleys, parkings, sidewalks or other public places of the city, any garbage, trash, paper, rubbish, grass, weeds, tree trimmings, dirt, crates, boxes or other refuse of any kind.”
The City’s Sanitation Division will remove up to 10 30-gallon size or smaller bags during regular trash pickup at no additional cost. Each additional bag beyond 10 will be charged $1.25 per bag. (Note: Bags sized over 30 gallons are counted as two bags.) For composting tips, visit metrecycle.com/composting-2.
In order to burn within city limits, residents are required to obtain a burn permit.
The permit can be filled out at the Public Safety Complex, 1101 N. 6th St. The burn site will need to be inspected and a $56 fee will need to be paid before burning is allowed.
For the complete process of obtaining a burn permit, visit BrokenArrowOK.gov/BurnPermit. You may also contact the Broken Arrow Fire Marshal’s office at 918-259-8360.
