Residential Solid Waste & Recycling

As of October 1st, 2016, the City of Owensville and Swinger Sanitation have entered into a partnership to provide residential solid waste and recycling collection for residents of the City. Per Ordinance No. 1224, Swinger Sanitation is the only hauling company residents may use for solid waste and recycling collection; commercial users can continue to use any hauler they choose.

For the low price of $14.00/month, residents can receive once-weekly trash collection, a 96-gallon roller cart to use for trash, once-weekly recycling collection, and an 18-gallon tub for recyclables. Senior citizen residents can get the same services for $13.00/month and can get a smaller, 35-gallon cart by calling the Swinger office at 573-885-7596 requesting such services.

Swinger Sanitation offers special accommodations for seniors or disabled residents who have difficulty moving the roller cart. If you are interested in these accommodations, please call the Swinger office using one of the phone numbers listed above.

Section 215.195 of the Owensville Municipal Code prohibits residents from burning their household trash and Section 230.070 prohibits residents from illegally dumping their trash in someone else's dumpster or container. If you see someone doing either of these activities, please call City Hall at 573-437-2812 or the Gasconade County E-911 Communication Center (dispatch) at 573-437-7770 to notify police personnel.

Using appropriate ways to dispose of our trash and recyclables keeps Owensville clean. Piles of accumulated trash and pieces of blowing litter are not only bad for our health and the environment, but they are also bad for the image of our community. Please help keep Owensville clean and safe by signing up for trash and recycling collection.
