City of Tulsa – Free Landfill Days This Weekend and November Pollutant Collection
City of Tulsa – Free Landfill Days
The City of Tulsa will host its semi-annual Free Landfill Days event on Saturday, October 27, and Sunday, October 28, from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Quarry Landfill located on 46th Street North approximately 1-1/2 miles east of U.S. 169.
This event provides an opportunity for City of Tulsa utility customers to dispose of unwanted items, with the exception of objects containing Freon refrigerant, such as air conditioners and refrigerators.
A $2.50 fee will be applied to each discarded tire with rim sizes up to 19.5 inches. For larger tires, the fee is $3.50 per tire. A $1.00 fee will be applied to motorcycle and smaller tires. The tire disposal charges cover state disposal and recycling fees.
To be admitted to the landfill without paying a fee, participants must present a City of Tulsa utility bill or a valid driver’s license with an address located within the Tulsa city limits.
Loads in trucks and trailers should be secured and covered to prevent contents from blowing out onto roadways and creating traffic hazards.
