TULSA - Spring cleaning or just needing to get rid of a lot of debris or trash?

Tulsans, this weekend is your chance to rid yourself of all that junk, free of charge. Well not ALL of it. There are some exceptions.

Free Landfill Days for City of Tulsa utility customers are scheduled April 9-10 at the Quarry Landfill on East 46th Street North, approximately a mile and a half east of U.S. 169. This event is sponsored by the City of Tulsa and Tulsa Authority for Recovery of Energy (TARE).

The Quarry Landfill address is 13740 E. 46th St. North. The open hours will be 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day. The landfill closes promptly at 3 p.m.

Participants must show a current City of Tulsa utility bill or a driver’s license with an address within the Tulsa city limits in order to be admitted to the landfill.

On Free Landfill Days, Tulsa utility customers can dispose of unwanted items at the landfill, with some exceptions as noted below.

No items containing Freon refrigerant will be accepted (air conditioners and refrigerators). This includes items where the compressor has been removed.

Tree and yard trimmings can be disposed of at the landfill, but to avoid long-wait lines, Tulsans can specifically dispose of green waste free of charge at the City’s Mulch Site, 2100 N. 145th East Ave., from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. seven days a week, excluding city holidays.

There are state-imposed fees for discarding tires. The fee is $2 per tire for City of Tulsa customers during Free Landfill Days.

Loads in trucks and trailers should be secured and covered to prevent contents from blowing out onto roadways and creating traffic hazards.

NOTE: There are two landfills on East 46th Street North. Look for the Quarry Waste Management Inc. signs.
