We would like to thank all of customers for their assistance and patience during the transition of sanitation services. We are looking forward to the long-term benefits of the partnership between the City and Oklahoma Environmental Management Authority.
• City crews will complete the last round of residential waste collection on Friday, March 1st.
• There will be no trash collection on Monday March 4th or Tuesday March 5th.
• Beginning Wednesday, March 6th, OEMA will begin to service residential collections. All residential sanitation will be collected every Wednesday. Residents are asked to have their poly-carts out by 7:00am for collection. Residential collections will be picked up once a week on Wednesday, beginning March 6th.
•There is no change in collection location. After lengthy research, assessment, and review, in consultation with OEMA, there will be no change in points of collection. We are asking residents to place the polycart for collection where they have currently been placing their solid waste. The City and OEMA agree that this will facilitate a smooth transition. Customers who have been placing their waste curbside shall continue to do so. Customers who have had alley service will continue to have alley service. In the event that change is needed, we will address those by specific area as the need arises. We apologize for conflicting information that might have been given earlier in the week. Due to the weather, this decision was not reached until late Wednesday afternoon.
• The location where the cart set crew placed your polycart may not be the designated collection spot. The crews delivered the carts to each residential customer in manner convenient to the crew and conducive to the resident.
• Residents with a permanent or short-term injury, ailment, or disability that are unable to maneuver their cart to collection point are asked to verify their address and contact information with City hall by phone call, email, or personal visit. OEMA representatives will come and get the cart from house side, empty the cart, and return it.
• We are encouraging residents to try the single cart out for a few weeks before requesting an additional cart. The capacity of the cart is more than meets the eye. In the event that your waste exceeds cart capacity, please put bags near the cart on collection day. Additional carts will be an additional fee, for increased volume of collection.
• If we failed to deliver a cart to your residence, please contact City Hall.
• If we accidentally miss your residence for collection, please call City Hall and we will get it resolved. Although we do not foresee intentional missed stops, as we transition, we do anticipate some wrinkles to iron out.
• If you have a large item, brush or limbs that will not fit in your cart, please contact City Hall so that we can schedule a collection for it.
• Downtown businesses will share containers located in the alleys behind Main Street.
• Commercial entities who have any questions on the size of container or frequency of collections, please contact City Hall.
• Smaller commercial entities may choose polycarts instead of a small dumpster.
• A dumpster locking mechanism is available for commercial containers for a fee of $2.50 per month to prevent unwanted access to your container. Businesses can put their own lock on the mechanism. The lifting hydraulics of the collection truck will empty the dumpster without interfering with your lock. Commercial customers desiring a locking mechanism on their container are asked to please contact City Hall.
• The City Convenience Center will remain open for customers to bring solid wastes to, located north of town, east of Airport Road.

We are looking at updating the site to promote, market and showcase the community of Kingfisher in conjunction with the Chamber of Commerce. We realize that our site has gotten outdated and we are looking to have a website that reflects the modern and progressive community that we have while promoting our rich history and culture.
Thank you to all of the event coordinators, volunteers, and area residents who made the KOCO Helping Hands Tour such a wonderful success for the community. Although the list of individual names to thank would exceed the space allowed, all efforts were greatly appreciated. Channel 5 personell were quite complimentary of the community and genuinely impressed with Kingfisher.
The City of Kingfisher is proud to announce the newest addition to our fleet, a CNG powered service truck for the Water Department. We are excited to use CNG fuel to provide quality services to our valued customers. We anticipate using more CNG vehicles as we replace our vehicle fleet.
The northeastern skyline in the City of Kingfisher has changed a little lately with the addition of our new 250,000 gallon water tower. We’ve watched it go up piece by piece and the last couple of weeks have been busy with cleaning, flushing and testing. As of last week the new tower is full and in use.
