The Metropolitan Environmental Trust temporarily suspended collection of electronic waste materials.

Officials said the e-waste collection trailer was stolen from the Central Tulsa M.e.t. Recycling Center at 3495 S. Sheridan Road on Tuesday.

Without the trailer they cannot accept materials such as cameras, computer batteries, computer monitors, computer towers, copiers/scanners, fax machines, keyboards/mouse, laptops, microwaves, phones, printers, power cords, small appliances, UPS systems, and VCRs/DVD players.

The M.e.t. said they will work diligently to replace the trailer within the new few weeks.

“Our hope is to spread the word of this theft,” said the M.e.t.’s Executive Director, Michael Patton. “It would be great if our customers could keep an eye out for this trailer.”

The M.e.t. has been collecting e-waste for almost a year. It has been a successful program with hauls to Natural Evolution, Inc. about twice a month. This service is extremely important for the citizens of Tulsa because electronic waste is a becoming an environmental issue.

For more information, or if you see anything please contact the Police, Annie Brady at 918-584-0584, or Michael Patton at 918-830-2233.
