Disposing of Extra Refuse

To dispose of trash that does not fit inside the refuse cart:

  • Bag extra trash and apply a refuse sticker to the bag so that it is visible to the hauler.
  • Extra trash must be bagged and contents sealed.
  • Set bagged trash three feet from your refuse cart by 6 a.m. on your collection day.
  • Additional refuse stickers may be purchased at area QuikTrip® locations anytimes, or at City Hall, 175 E. 2nd Street, Payment Center, Monday - Friday, 7:30 a.m. - 5 p.m.
  • For large items that do not fit inside of the trash cart, such as an appliance, mattress or piece of furniture, call the City of Tulsa at (918) 596-9777 to arrange for a Bulky Waste pickup. Learn more...
