Refuse Collection

image001_thumbResidential & Commercial Services

The City of Winfield provides residential and commercial refuse collection services. All services begin as early as 7:00 a.m. 


Residential refuse is collected weekly.  Most collection is done at the curb/roadside with service provided in a limited number of alleys.  Trash containers should be watertight with handles and tightfitting cover.  If a container over 35 gallons is used, trash must be placed in  large, heavy-duty bags that can be lifted out.


Business District and Commercial refuse will be collected as often as practical.  Volume of trash will be used to determine frequency of collection and size of containers.  Fees will be determined by that frequency and container size.


Area third-party providers collect and dispose of Industrial/Manufacturing waste that exceed the City's equipment or container capabilities.

Changes in Collection Schedule

The City of Winfield observes the following holidays:  New Year's Day, Martin Luther King Jr. Day, President's Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Veteran's Day, Thanksgiving Day, the Friday following Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas Day.  When any of the above holidays fall during the week (Monday-Friday) the residential refuse collection schedule will be affected and your refuse collection may run a day behind normal schedule. Notification of holiday or other changes will be printed in the Cowley CourierTraveler, posted in our Facebook Page and listed on Cox Cable Channel 7.
