The City of Tulsa is offering "Free Landfill Days" in an effort to make spring cleaning a little easier.

Free Landfill Days for City of Tulsa utility customers are scheduled April 12-13 at the Quarry Landfill on 46th Street North, approximately 1 1/2 miles east of U.S. Highway 169.

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

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 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 items containing Freon refrigerant will be accepted (air conditioners and refrigerators). This includes items where the compressor has been removed.

There are state-imposed fees for discarding tires. The fee is $2 per tire for City of Tulsa customers during free landfill days.

Customers hauling tree and yard trimmings to the landfill should be aware that those items can be disposed of at the City's green waste processing facility at 10401 E. 56th St. North, from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. seven days a week, excluding city holidays.

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