Trash & Recycling

ln partnership with American Waste Control, the One Cart Recycling program was implemented as an easy and convenient option for residents to recycle at no additional cost.  The single cart program allows Jenks' residents to put loose recyclables into city trash carts with bags of  trash.  Trash is to be bagged so that recyclables are not contaminated.  

Recyclables such as paper, plastic, cardboard and aluminum can be placed loose at the bottom of the same cart with regular bags of trash.  Trash and recyclables are transported together in the same container on the same pickup day.  "Mr. Murph", American Waste Control's recyclable sorting machine, separates the different materials when it reaches their facility.

In addition to the one cart program, residents may recycle at Mr. Murph dumpsters around town at no cost.  All Mr. Murph locations, including old Abitibi dumpsters, accept the following:

  • Paper (including phone books)
  • Plastics
  • Cardboard
  • Steel Cans
  • Aluminum Cans
