Lake Ozark Spring Cleaning Trash Disposal 2020
This week, Lake Ozark residents may bring their unwanted household items to the City’s utility building for proper disposal. They take in the items that your regular curbside pickup won’t accept. Simply bring your junk to the utility building on School Rd anytime between 7 am and 5 pm before Friday.
You must be a Lake Ozark resident to partake in this disposal event. Bring your utility bill with you when you drop off your acceptable trash at the City’s utility building. They observe strict safety precautions in accordance with CDC guidelines for COVID-19 to maintain a secure facility. They’ve seen a very nice turnout so far. Someone will be on-site to help take your items out of your vehicle and drop them off in their appointed bins.
