Trash Billing and Information

The City is not an exclusive trash hauler city, which means you can set up trash services with the company of your choosing.

While the City of Ozark does not provide trash services directly to its citizens, it has partnered with Republic Services to provide convenience and a lower rate for its citizens. Through this partnership, the City bills your trash service so that you receive only one utility bill. Keep in mind that the city is only responsible for processing payments and not for pickup or services related to trash collection.

Billing Information for Republic Service Customers

If you select Republic Services as your trash collection provider, your trash bill is processed on the same bill as your water and sewer services by the City of Ozark Utility Billing Department. Upon registration with Republic Services, they will inform you of your pickup day and other service details. Visit the Republic Services website for more information. Call 417-865-1717 for customer service.
