Yes! You can still reap the benefits of owning a rain barrel without gutters. Walk around your home during a rain event and observe where rain water drips from your roof line. Remember the area where you see the most drainage and place your rain barrel under that spot. Adding a “rain chain” under the roof crease in that location will help to divert the rain directly into your rain barrel.
Roll your container to the curb by 7 a.m. on your collection day. The container is emptied mechanically from inside a Republic Services® vehicle cab. The driver uses a joystick, much like those used in video games, to operate the automated arm that picks up the container and empties the garbage into the truck. The container is set back in place, and the Republic Services truck moves on to the next stop.
Be sure your container is at the curb by 7 a.m. on your collection day to ensure collection. Or, you may set your container out the night before, if you wish.

All residents have the recycle charge included in their Solid Waste Utility; however, the participation is voluntary.
As part of your recycling service, The City of Edmond provides a 96-gallon recycling poly cart. The carts are permanently assigned to each residential address and belong to the city.

It depends, as this requirement comes from a change in shingle manufacturers’ installation instructions. Some, not all, shingle manufacturers now state (in their instructions) that their product cannot be installed on solid lumber sheathing wider than a 1x6. This is due to the possibility for expansion/contraction of the deck boards wider than a 1x6. The code does state that new roof covering material (shingles) must be installed in accordance with the manufacturers’ installation instructions. These instructions may also address the gap between boards and may require an overlay of OSB or plywood if the gaps are too wide.
The 2015 International Residential Code (IRC) does not require you to remove the existing deck material prior to installation of a new sheathing substrate except in very unusual circumstances where the existing roof framing is inadequate. Roof replacements do require the removal of all existing layers of roof covering (shingles).
Yes, per IRC section R905.2.8.5 drip edge is required for asphalt shingle installations. Drip edge must be installed in accordance with the manufacturers’ installation instructions.
If the chimney measures more than 30 inches wide, perpendicular to the slope, then a cricket is required per the IRC section R903.2.2.
All requirements of the code are enforced and in effect even if a specific permit or inspection are not required.
No, currently it is not specifically required by code unless mandated by a shingle manufacturers’ installation instructions for certain applications.
Yes, multiple code approved options are available per IRC section R905 for asphalt installations.
Urban Forestry is stewardship of the local environment through planning for and management of trees growing throughout a city. These trees may include individuals or groups of trees growing in locations such as residential areas, street right-of-ways, park land, around businesses, on undeveloped lots, or really anywhere that trees might grow within an urban area. Another major component of urban forestry is education about and advocacy for the many environmental, economic, health, and social benefits that trees and natural ecosystems provide.
For information about Urban Forestry in Edmond, view the links below:
The Urban Forestry Department offers a tree consultation service for people who live inside Edmond City Limits. To inquire about visiting on site with an Edmond urban forester, call Leigh at 359-4759 or Jesse at 359-4739.
Newly planted trees often experience “transplant shock”, or stress caused by root disturbance at planting and adjustment to the new growing environment. Transplant shock may be avoided by ensuring that resources are readily available during those first few years while the tree is getting established in its new location. Here are a few tips to help your tree make it to establishment:
To learn more maintenance tips for trees, view Tips for Growing Healthy Trees.
Any trees growing outside of the public right-of-way are not eligible for tree work administered by the city, except through the CDBG Neighborwoods program.

To inquire about this program, call Leigh at 359-4759 or Jesse at 359-4739.
