Trash & Recycling


American Waste Control is our contracted partner for City of Jenks trash collection.


Curbside recycling is now provided by American Waste to Jenks residents.  Beginning in late August/early September 2019, all Jenks residents will receive one Recycling Cart per home.  

To opt out of Recycling, please contact American Waste Control at 918-582-1147 or call the City of Jenks Utility Department at 918-299-5363.

Rate change for Curbside Recycling will be in effect on the October 2019 Jenks Utility Bill.

Recycling information and education can be found at or residents can call 918-582-1147 to speak directly with an American Waste Recycling expert.  Click here to see what is Recyclable and what NOT to put in the Recycle Cart.

Individual Recycling account information can be found at . An individual verification code from the American Waste Control postcard mailer (received in mid-July 2019) is needed to access the site.

Please read a letter from the City of Jenks included in the July 2019 Utility bill introducing the new Curbside Recycling program.
