Green Waste/Yard Waste Service

We live in Green Country. It's beautiful and well, green, which means we tend to have a lot of yard waste. Yard waste is organic or garden material such as leaves, grass, plants and branches. Tulsa's trash service makes yard waste removal easy. 

If it Fits, That's it
Along with household refuse, any extra capacity in your primary trash cart can be used for bagged yard waste. If it fits with the lid closed, that's all you need to do. The catch is that the cart lid must close completely. For customers with multiple trash carts, yard waste can only be placed in your primary trash cart. Yard waste placed in additional carts will not be collected.

Bag it and Tag it - NOTE: The sticker requirement for greenwaste has been suspended.

Bundle the Branches
For limbs and branches that don't loosely fit in your cart or a bag, tie them into bundles no more than 2-feet across and 4-feet long.

Curb the Green
Place all of your yard waste outside of the cart, regardless of service level to include backyard or special service. Leave three feet of space between your cart and your bags and bundles. Place all yard waste at the curb by 6 a.m. on your collection day.

More Green in Between?
GreenWasteMapYard Waste may also be disposed of at no cost at the City of Tulsa's Green Waste Facility at 10401 East 56th St. North, located just a half-mile west of Highway 169 on East 56th Street North. The facility is open seven days a week from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. except for city observed holidays. A current driver's license or a recent City of Tulsa utility bill with a Tulsa address is required to use the site. Pick up some free mulch and firewood while you're there.
