The City of Tulsa’s Household Pollutant Collection Facility will begin accepting latex paint on July 3. This change has been years in the making and is a disposal option which customers have been requesting since the facility opened in 2016.
Anticipating that this waste stream will be very popular with customers, the facility has increased its staff and disposal capacity accordingly.
As with other new or lightly used products, latex paint may be available in the Swap Shop for customers to pick up for free. Swap Shop customers are limited to taking five items at a time. The Household Pollutant Collection Facility is open for residential customers but not commercial wastes and businesses.
To drop off pollutants, it is necessary to make an appointment by calling (918) 591-4325. The facility is open Wednesday and Saturday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Tulsa residents may dispose of pollutants free at the facility.
The Household Pollutant Collection Facility is located at 4502 S. Galveston Ave., near Interstate 44 and the Arkansas River. Learn more about accepted and non-accepted items online or call (918) 591-4325.
The Household Pollutant Collection Facility also is open to surrounding communities; these residents should contact the Metropolitan Environmental Trust (M.e.t.) for details, (918) 584-0584.
