Refuse - Dumpsters/ C&D Dumpster
Dumpsters for residents of Oswego may be rented for a major cleaning project, such as after an auction, as part of the closing of an estate, etc. where a large volume of items need to be disposed of. The city will provide a dumpster for up to three months for a cost of $100 plus a fee each time it is emptied, and the customer must call when a pickup is needed. After three months, a $50 fee will be charged for each additional month it is needed.
Items that may be placed in the dumpster include: wood, metal, household or yard furniture, toys, used motor vehicle parts, household appliances, clothes, shoes, etc. NOTE: If you have a large item, such as a refrigerator or freezer that is too large to fit in the dumpster, it should be placed along side the dumpster and the city office should be notified – and a special pick-up will be made.
Items that may NOT be placed in the dumpster include: household garbage, leaves, grass clippings, demolition or remodelling materials. NO concrete, rocks, dirt, tires, motor oil, batteries, paint, paint thinner, or any other household hazardous waste. If your items are leaves, brush or construction or demo materials they may be taken to the brush dump. A brush site and C&D Dumpster is located there for these types of items.
The city has a dumpster located at the city's brush site, at 1321 Chisholm Lane for construction and other items not allowed in an individual dumpster. The site is open the third Saturday of each month from 8:00 a.m. to noon. Also on Thursday's you may call the City Office at 795-4433 between 11am and 4pm to request someone to meet you at the site to open the gate. The dumpster at this site is available for a fee based on the weight of the materials. You must obtain a weigh ticket from Bartlett Co-op of the empty weight for your vehicle or trailer, and then provide a weigh ticket with it loaded. The current rate is $53.50 per ton with a minimum of $7.50.
