Tulsa greenwaste site open today and tomorrow for residents affected by tornadoes.

The City of Tulsa Greenwaste Facility located at 2100 North 145th E. Ave., is a free greenwaste removal option for Tulsa and Broken Arrow residents and available year-round.

Customers outside of Tulsa and Broken Arrow can pay $0.55 per cubic yard at the gate to drop-off greenwaste.

The Greenwaste site will be open until 8 p.m. this evening and will open tomorrow from 7 a.m. – 8 p.m. A current driver's license or a recent City of Tulsa or Broken Arrow utility bill with a Tulsa or Broken Arrow address is required to use the site.

In the past week, two tornadoes have impacted the Tulsa community. Following the May 21 tornado, City crews have been in north Tulsa removing trees and debris out of roadways and placed six dumpsters in the neighborhoods for residents to remove storm debris.

The same option will be offered to south Tulsa residents that were impacted by the tornado this morning. The locations of the dumpsters for the May 26 tornado are:

  • 5707 E. 109th Pl.
  • 93rd S. Lakewood Ave.
  • 9711 S. Darlington
  • 99th & S. Irvington
  • 9737 S. Joplin Pl.
  • 5700 E. 98th St.

Tulsa Citywide Refuse and Recycling
Trash will be collected as roads are passable for Tulsa residents. From May 28 through June 1, the City will not collect recyclables due to the potential shortage of CNG due to operational challenges during the flooding event.

Beginning June 3, extra recycling that does not fit in the blue recycling cart can be placed next to the cart in a cardboard box or paper sack (extra recyclables cannot be placed is plastic bags).

We ask residents to please be patient as the safety of residents and workers are the first priority.

If residents have questions about normal trash and recycling pickup, please call 311.
