City of Tulsa offering special free greenwaste curbside debris removal operation beginning Monday

TULSA - The city of Tulsa will begin a special curbside debris removal operation next week after last night's storms.

Beginning Monday, July 29 at 8 a.m. and continuing to 5 p.m. weekdays, crews will make one pass through the city to gather residential tree debris that is placed at the curb.

If able, residents should cut tree debris into 4-foot or smaller sections and place the bundles at the curb for crews to collect.

If unable to cut the debris, residents should drag limbs to the curb for pickup.

The regular schedule for the collection of bagged greenwaste will be interrupted during the special operation and will resume once crews have made a full sweep through Tulsa.

Both City of Tulsa greenwaste trucks and grappler trucks will be used to pick up debris.

Tree debris should not be mixed with other kinds of debris.  No housing, roofing or structural debris will be picked up.

Crews will only pick up easily accessible debris set at the curb or near the street.

The special curbside pickup will begin on the outer perimeters of the city, working into the center where storm damage is heaviest.  After crews begin removal they will assess the situation and announce an anticipated timeline for pickup.

Household refuse and recycling collection will continue as normal.

Tulsans can also take tree and limb debris to the city's greenwaste processing site at 10401 E. 56th St. North from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily at no charge.
