The City of Tulsa's Neighborhood Dumpster Program is a service available to registered neighborhood associations to perform neighborhood clean-up activities. Participating groups can make use of 30-yard containers to dispose of eligible household items twice a year. Please note: During inclement weather, employees assigned to the Neighborhood Dumpster Program will be reassigned to work the weather event. In this case, your drop-off/pick-up dates may be adjusted.
Dumpsters are for use at residential sites and CANNOT be used for commercial purposes (for example, to clean out rental properties),
Certain items that CANNOT be placed in the dumpsters (such as limbs and other tree debris, grass clippings, Freon bearing appliances, car parts or tires, air conditioners, roofing materials, and whole buildings, sheds or garages). For further disposal options see information below.
DO NOT OVERFILL DUMPSTER! Dumpsters should be no more than three-fourth (3/4) full, so that they are easily transported to the landfill. Items CANNOT be placed on the ground around the dumpster.
