TULSA, Oklahoma -- With city services disrupted by the record-breaking snowfalls, the City of Tulsa issued an update on trash collection progress. Trash collection is going slowly, not just because of the road conditions but also "due to the number of customers asking collectors to wait as they bring all their refuse to the curb," according to the news release.
Some routes will be incomplete at the end of the day, but the City assures customers that collectors will come back and continue servicing the routes the following day.
