Okmulgee Landfill is the only landfill I know of in our area. They offer the basic services one would expect, such as a place to dispose of unwanted household trash and other items. One plus is that they accept things like used motor oil, paint, and other household chemicals and dispose of them in an environmentally responsible manner. When you drive in with a load, they'll weigh and measure it, direct you where to dump it, and then weigh you on the way back out (empty) to calculate the price, which is figured by weight and volume.
PROS: staff will come out to your vehicle for weighing/measuring
We've done business with the Nick Agency for several years. We went through them when purchasing auto insurance policies for our 3 vehicles. They offer many different companies to choose from and will always do their best to find the best coverage at the most affordable rates. The staff is very friendly and they're quick to return phone calls. Besides being insurance brokers, they are a real estate agency. They do a lot of business in and around Okmulgee county and are very experienced in buying and selling land, commercial, and residential property.
PROS: small office with a friendly, personal atmosphere
City Glass offers commercial and residential glass repair and installation. They were very helpful when we had to replace a plate glass window we'd accidentally broken in a rental house. While in the store I found out that they can help you with glass topped tables, storefronts, and shower doors too. Everyone there was really nice, and I didn't have to wait very long to be helped. My window was repaired that same afternoon which made me very happy!
PROS: quick service, wide variety of glass services available
I've used the services of The Copy Depot numerous times. They're a full service copy shop with services similar to Kinko's, plus they make vinyl signs and offer a notary service too. It's a very convenient place to go to get everything taken care of at once. They're also a licensed payment center for different local utilities. Their friendly and very helpful staff and great parking make it easy to get in and out quickly when you've got a busy schedule.
PROS: great parking, friendly employees, variety of services in one location
B & B Small Engine offers repairs, parts, and service for mowers, chainsaws, weedeaters, etc. We consult them every year when lawn care season rolls around. They keep a lot of parts on hand for those who like to perform their own repairs and maintenance and they can usually order what they don't already offer. Their work is always satisfactory and the turnaround time from drop off to pick up is good, although there can sometimes be a delay in their busy season, which is spring and summer. Their pricing is competitve, and much lower than paying for service from a manufacturer.
PROS: able to fix almost any small engine that needs repair
CONS: sometimes have to wait longer than usual
Southern Cross Music & Sound is the best place to shop in Okmulgee if you're planning to buy a musical instrument.

If they don't have what you need, they can help you find it. They're located "on the square" in historic downtown Okmulgee, which makes them a convenient place to shop too.
Martin Monument Company is conveniently located across the street from Okmulgee Cemetery. They are Okmulgee's only full service monument shop, offering custom designs and after hours appointments as needed.
