FLOOD/TORNADO Update: Refuse and Recycling Services - May 26
Refuse, recycling, yard waste and bulky waste will not be collected on Monday. Many customers will experience a change in their collection day(s), according to the following schedule:
Trash will be collected as roads are passable for Tulsa residents. From May 28 through June 1, the City will not collect recyclables due to the potential shortage of CNG due to operational challenges during the flooding event.
Beginning June 3, extra recycling that does not fit in the blue recycling cart can be placed next to the cart in a cardboard box or paper sack (extra recyclables cannot be placed is plastic bags).
We ask residents to please be patient, for the safety of our residents and workers are our first priority.
For those customers who opted to receive twice-a-week collection service, please see the graphic below for your primary and secondary collection days.
