This weekend is City of Tulsa Free Landfill Days. (from CityofTulsa.org)

The City of Tulsa will host its semi-annual free landfill day's event on Saturday, Oct. 19 and Sunday, Oct. 20 from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Quarry Landfill located at 46th Street North approximately 1-1/2 miles east of U.S. 169.

This event provides an opportunity for City of Tulsa utility customers to dispose of unwanted items, with the exception of objects containing Freon refrigerant, such as air conditioners and refrigerators.

A $2.50 fee will be applied to each discarded tire with rim sizes up to 19.5 inches.  For larger tires, the fee is $3.50 per tire. A $1.00 will be applied to motorcycle and smaller tires. The tire disposal charges cover state disposal and recycling fees.

To be admitted to the landfill without paying a fee, participants must present a City of Tulsa utility bill or a valid driver's license with an address located within the Tulsa city limits.

Loads in trucks and trailers should be secured and covered to prevent contents from blowing out onto roadways and creating traffic hazards.
