Winter Weather - Refuse and Recycling Update
Starting Dec. 11, refuse and recycling services will return to
normal operations. Most all refuse customers that did not receive
trash service due to winter weather on Friday and Monday, received
trash service Tuesday.
There are some neighborhoods that still could not receive refuse
service because of icy roads, but service will be attempted again
Wednesday. For specific customers that still have yet to receive
trash service due to winter weather, customers may place excess
bagged trash without a refuse sticker at the curb.
For recycling customers that did not receive recycling service
due to the winter weather on Friday, Monday and Tuesday, customers
can place their excess recycling in a paper bag or
cardboard box next to their recycle cart and all
recyclables will be taken.
For more weather information, visit the National Weather Service in
Or, the City
of Tulsa's Severe Weather website.

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.
