New trash routes smooth so far in Tulsa

 

It’s day one of Tulsa’s new trash-pickup system: so far, so good, according to the City.

“I wish there was something exciting to report,” said the City’s Liz Hunt. “For those residents who have a Monday collection day, those routes are being serviced.”

She says residents should be sure to bag their trash.

Recycling pickup is currently suspended, “until customers receive their new refuse and recycling carts,” Hunt said.

Delivery of those carts will begin the week of July 16, and customers can start to use the carts as soon as they receive them.

Until the carts are delivered, residents can take their recycling to any one of five Tulsa MET locations, which will have extended hours through July, from 3:30 – 7:30 p.m. Those locations are available here.

“We understand that this is going to be a transition for the next few weeks,” Hunt said. “These are going to be new habits for customers in terms of getting used to their new collection days. We ask neighbors to be patient with neighbors.”
