Free Weekend Dump
By KWGS News
Tulsa, OK – Free Landfill Days for Tulsans are scheduled for October 23 and 24, at Quarry Landfill, 13740 E. 46th St. North. The City of Tulsa and the Tulsa Authority for the Recovery of Energy host this event and offer it as a service to City of Tulsa utility customers.
This is not the North Tulsa Sanitation Landfill that the Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality has cited as a threat to public health and welfare. The City of Tulsa takes residential solid waste to the Covanta Walter B. Hall Resource Recovery Facility at 2122 S. Yukon Ave. If residential solid waste is to be diverted from or is unacceptable at that facility, it goes to Waste Management's Quarry Landfill, 13740 E. 46th St. North. This is the landfill where the Free Landfill Days will be held.
Free Landfill Days participants must show a City of Tulsa utility bill or a driver's license with an address within the Tulsa city limits in order to be admitted to the landfill. The entrance is on 46th Street North, approximately 1- miles east of U.S. 169. (Note: there are two landfills on East 46th Street North. Look for the Quarry Waste Management Inc. signs.)
Free Landfill Days hours will be 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. The landfill closes promptly at 3 p.m. Loads should be secured and covered in vehicles and trailers traveling to the landfill.
No items containing Freon refrigerant will be accepted (air conditioners and refrigerators). There will be a $2 fee for each discarded tire. This covers state fees for disposal and recycling of tires.
