City Helps With North Tulsa Tornado Cleanup, Offers Free Landfill Days

Posted: Updated:
TULSA, Oklahoma -

Cleanup from the tornado with volunteers, nonprofits and the government all having a hand in it.

There is a cost to picking up and disposing of the debris, and so far, the City of Tulsa has been using its own crews to do the work in the area hit by the tornado.

Volunteers have helped get things gathered up and moved to the curb.

Street maintenance workers have been going through picking up and hauling off limbs and some debris from rooftops and houses that were damaged.

The city plans to ask the trash board to cover the cost of the pickup; that means it wouldn't be so much of a drain on the regular city budget.

Meanwhile, the city councilor for the area says he couldn't be happier with the response, now just one week out from the storm.

"So many people are so concerned they are coming in from all over the city, volunteering, doing what they can, cutting trees, moving debris, bringing food, bringing supplies,” councilor Jack Henderson said.

This weekend there will be more volunteers out helping, and it's a weekend when dumping is free at the city landfill.

On April 9-10, City of Tulsa utility customers can dump items for free at Quarry Landfill on East 46th Street North near U.S. Highway 169.

The open hours will be 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day. The landfill closes promptly at 3 p.m.

You 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.

No 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.
