The City of Tulsa’s Mulch Site will be closed until further notice to address a fire in the mulch piles. The Tulsa Fire Department is on scene assisting.
Mulch piles can catch on fire because heat can build up under the surface. Though Tulsa has received recent rains, dry and windy conditions throughout the last several months are thought to have contributed to this fire.
The City will provide updates on when the Mulch Site can reopen, as the need for tree limb drop-off following this week’s storms has created an increased need to use the site.
During this time, residents can bundle limbs and branches and tie them into bundles no more than 2-feet across and 4-feet long, weighing less than 40 lbs., and put them alongside their refuse cart on their regular trash day and crews will pick them up. There is a limit of 15 bags and/or bundles that will be picked up at the curb on a resident’s primary collection day.
