The Greenwaste Processing site in north Tulsa has been slammed with area residents dumping off tree debris from the Tuesday evening storm.

Equipment operator with the City of Tulsa Public Works Department Stephen Blevins told FOX23 that crews have been working diligently to keep up with lines of trucks.

"It's been crazy," said Blevins, "The past 48 hours we have been working non-stop from 7 in the morning until 4 in the afternoon and there is always a steady flow of cars."

Blevins said that approximately 1,200 cars dumped off debris on Wednesday and crews anticipate that Thursday will exceed that number.

Drivers told FOX23 that they were grateful for the free service but were surprised to see so many people waiting in line.

"The line was long but I've used this place many times before," said J.D. Washburn, "I just decided to load it all up and drop it off because it's pretty convenient."

Tulsans can also take tree and limb debris to the Greenwaste Processing site, 10401 E. 56th St. North, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily at no charge.
