Residential Yard Waste Update - January 2015


Beginning Jan. 1, 2015, NeWSolutions, the City's refuse and recycling contractor, will be handling the following three solid waste streams: Refuse, recycling and yard waste.

City crews will continue to haul residential yard waste for residents until the first of the year. Tulsans will see little change in how their yard waste is handled beginning Jan. 1.

Residents will be able to set a total of 15 bags and/or bundles of yard waste at the curb per week. Solid waste from the gray carts and yard waste will then be taken by NeWSolutions to Covanta's waste-to-energy plant, where it is cleanly burned and converted into energy.

Residents can continue to place yard waste in their primary gray trash cart if the lid will completely close. For limbs or branches that will not fit loosely in the gray trash cart, residents may tie them into bundles no more than 2-feet across and 4-feet long. Yard waste bags should be clear or transparent to denote the content is yard waste.

Residents who have more than 15 bags or bundles may hold them for the next week's collection, or tag them with "additional refuse" stickers that are available for purchase at any QuikTrip location. The trash rate on residential utility bills will not change.

Tulsa residents may also take their yard waste to the City of Tulsa's Mulch Site, located at 2100 N. 145th E. Avenue. Mulch and firewood are available for pick up by Tulsa residents free of charge.
