Green Waste Program Will Stay and Task Force Recommends More

Posted: Updated:

The City of Tulsa's green waste program has been under scrutiny, since the city began burning green waste, instead of mulching it as planned.  

A task force headed by city councilor, Karen Gilbert, has been meeting for the past four weeks, coming up with recommendations to handle the green waste, in a green manner.

So far the Tulsa Authority for Energy Recovery has accepted one recommendation, to keep the green waste separate from trash.

But how that will happen will take more planning and more decisions.

The task force may recommend taking the green waste to the current green waste site. That could mean converting that to a compost site. That process could cost more money for citizens, to handle the green waste.

Another recommendation could be going from weekly pickup service for lawn clippings and limbs, to every other week.  One more possibility, is seasonal pick-up, with no service in January or February. 

The task force will finalize it's recommendations on January 7th and present it to the TARE board later that month.
