Every recycling program is different. Here’s how ours works.
The City of Tulsa has an extensive system for recovering resources from regular household waste. At the waste-to-energy plant, even metals are reclaimed from trash after it is processed. The incinerator produces valuable steam energy that helps power a local refinery.
Our trash service is based on a “pay-as-you-throw” model that allows you to control how much you pay each month. The less trash you throw out, the smaller the cart you need. And the smaller the cart you need, the less you pay.
