Additional Items for Pick-up

Starting April 8th, the city will NOT be picking up any items that are sitting outside of the poly-cart. If you have additional items that will not fit in your poly-cart on your regular trash pick up day, you may place the items in your poly-cart and call the City Office at 620-795-4433 for an extra pick up on Wednesday or you may make arrangements to place the items in one of the city's dumpsters.
If an item is too big to be placed in the poly-cart you may still make arrangements by calling the City Office to take the item to the city brush dump.
We would also like to remind you all household trash needs to be bagged when placed inside the poly-cart.
This is all to help limit the exposure of COVID 19.
Thank you and please everyone stay safe!


Notice From Oswego Police Department

As a proactive measure against the spread of the COVID-19, the coronavirus, the Oswego Police Department will be limiting some public services. Department officials are keeping up to date with current information about our area and will be making adjustments as needed.

We are encouraging those who need to file a report should do so by calling 620-795-2565. Officers will continue their normal patrol duties, but whenever possible, they will be responding to non-emergency reports via phone calls. This does not apply to emergency calls, where crime is in progress, violent in nature, or when suspects may still be on scene.

Oswego, the Labette County seat, is located at the intersection of Highways 59/160, on a bluff overlooking the Neosho River Valley.  Oswego was fortunate that a group of pioneer ladies had a vision, and purchased acreage along the bluff that is now Historical Riverside Park, our hidden gem.  Over 80 acres of beautifully landscaped park includes a large public swimming pool, playground equipment, shelter houses, 10,000 s.f. community center, tennis courts, basketball court, RV park, ball fields, and home of the Labette County Fairgrounds. It is the perfect location for family reunions, weddings, company events and picnics, and other organized events.
