You can choose your trash cart size
After citizen complaints and pressure from city councilors, the Tulsa trash board decides to allow you to choose your refuse cart size after all. The original plan was for everyone to start with the largest size and wait three months before making a change. Not a popular plan with residents or councilors like Phil Lakin, who doesn’t understand why small trash generators would have to use the large carts, even for a short amount of time. At a special meeting this week, members of the Trash Board made an about face, and instead of being forced to use the large 96-gallon carts the first three months, you will be allowed to choose your cart size before the new trash collection system begins October 1st.
