During the holiday period, City trash receptacles should be reserved for perishable items only.

To avoid an overflowing accumulation of trash and debris in dumpsters, citizens are asked to recycle items at the Odessa Recycle Center, 816 W. 42nd St. Drop off windows for cardboard, plastics, paper, and aluminum cans are open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
