Smaller Recycle Carts for Tulsa?
Smaller recycling carts could soon be in Tulsa’s future. The Tulsa Trash Board had ordered huge recycling carts, but is now looking to use, much smaller, 48-gallon carts.
Board member and City Councilor David Patrick likes the idea.
Patrick: "This is a really good compromise to the size of the recycling cart and making that available to the public."
It is not a done deal. The city legal department needs to review any contract change as well as the NewSolutions Trash Service. However, the city's Eric Lee says the board can move forward.
Lee: "I would always listen to counsel first before proceeding. However , if the intent is to 'let's put our order into queue' to give you enough time to, maybe, wait until legal responds and/or hear from NewSolutions."
Tulsa's new trash service begins on Monday.
