President’s Day and an unprecedented winter storm have delayed Muskogee trash pickup by two days, according to Stephen Morton, Muskogee’s assistant director of public works.
“We ask that citizens be patient,” he said just now. “Our guys are working a couple of extra hours every day to try to catch us up.”
Citizens should put their trash containers on the curb at the scheduled time anyway, because it’s impossible to predict when workers will make it to a given location, he said.
“If your trash pickup day was today, under normal delay circumstances, you could safely wait until Friday to put your trash out,” he said. “But because we’re working extra to catch up, they should put it out today.”
If you can’t get your container to the curb, or if you’re missed, you should call the Public Works Department at 918-684-6333.
