Regular Greenwaste Collection Update
Tulsa Authority for the Recovery of Energy (TARE) board
members unanimously voted on Aug. 27 to waive the
requirement for residents to apply greenwaste stickers to their
curbside greenwaste until Jan. 31, 2014.
Greenwaste that is clear bagged and
bundled without a sticker will be picked up at the curbside on
regularly scheduled service days. Greenwaste should be placed at
the curb by 6 a.m. on customers' primary collection day.
As TARE members continue to evaluate the curbside greenwaste
program and collection options, residents should keep their
greenwaste stickers, which could be used at a later date.
