Tulsa's trash program offers several options to meet your refuse and recycling needs:
- A 32, 64, or 96-gallon trash cart
- Once- or twice-a-week pickup
- Curbside, backyard (up to 100 feet from the curb) or extended backyard service (more than 100 feet from the curb).
Households may request a change in cart size at any time for a $10 fee. To change your cart size please call 311 or email Tulsa311@cityoftulsa.org during regular business hours.
Reminder, if you have curbside service, you must place your carts within four feet of the curb.
