TULSA, OK -- Two Tulsa companies are celebrating a win-win project.  Waste Management and Lafarge Cement cut the ribbon on Friday on a new multi-million dollar pipeline.

The 8,000 foot line will carry landfill or methane gas from Waste Management to Lafarge which will use it as an alternative fuel.

The landfill will no longer have to burn off the methane gas and Lafarge will save about 9% on their fuel costs.
