Curbside Recycling services are also offered thru Ottawa Sanitation with sign up at Baldwin City Hall. Cost is $4.50 added to the monthly Utility Bill. Ottawa Sanitation provides an 18 gallon bin for plastics, paper, aluminum, tin cans, and chipboard. Glass Recycle Dumpster is located at Baldwin City Market. Regardless of your regular trash day, curbside recycling is picked up on Wednesday.
In November, City staff will be inserting the inaugural newsletter along with your utility bill. We hope to provide patrons with current and upcoming events and information relating to the City.
Baldwin City Volunteer Fire Department in cooperation with the Kansas State Fire Marshall’s Office is proud to offer Free Smoke Alarms to area residents. We require a member of the fire department install the smoke alarm. These alarms are available to private residences that do not currently have working smoke alarms. You may request an alarm by calling the fire department at 785-594-3678 and leaving a message with your contact information. We will get back with you as soon as possible to schedule an installation time. Please note that smoke alarms should be tested monthly and replaced after 10 years. Statistically most fire related injuries occur in homes without a working smoke alarm.
