Tulsa’s HPCF is open every Wednesday (by appointment) and Saturday from 8:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.

Unlike previous collection events, customers can expect quick service at the permanent facility.

Licensed staff with over 25 years of experience will properly dispose of the pollutants, which keeps hazardous materials from entering water sources, storm drains and the refuse and recycling systems. 

Tulsa’s new HPCF has collected 18,929 pounds of household pollutants for proper disposal from 323 customers.

Since its opening, Tulsa has added a fluorescent bulb crusher and paint can crusher, which helps reduce the volume of material and disposal costs.
