TULSA, Okla. — Following last week’s severe weather, the City of Tulsa’s Streets and Stormwater Department, along with the Tulsa Area Emergency Management Agency (TAEMA), is assessing storm damage and opening a mulch site for people to drop off tree limbs.

The City of Tulsa Mulch Site at 2100 North 145th East Avenue opened for tree limb drop-off, but a fire in the mulch piles around 1 p.m. on Friday temporarily closed the facility as firefighters worked to put it out.

The site will reopen Wednesday, Nov. 17.

People need to bundle limbs and branches by tying them into bundles no more than 2-feet across and 4-feet long, weighing less than 40 lbs., and put them alongside their trash can on their regular trash day and crews will pick them up.

Mulch and firewood will need to wait until storm debris is taken care of.

Mulch Site hours are:

  • Mondays through Fridays from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
  • Sundays from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m.
