Tulsans will get a break on paying for curbside greenwaste collection.
During the Tulsa Authority for the Recovery of Energy meeting Wednesday, board members unanimously voted to waive the requirement for residents to apply greenwaste stickers until January 31, 2014.
Greenwaste that is clear bagged and bundled without a sticker will be picked up at the curbside on regularly scheduled service days. Greenwaste should be placed at the curb by 6 a.m. on customers' primary collection day.
Residents were having to buy a sheet of five stickers for $2.50.
During a meeting in early August, city staff admitted green waste collected from the curb was never delivered to the mulch plant. However, residents were still being charged to have their waste removed from the curb.
As TARE members continue to evaluate the curbside greenwaste program and collection options, residents should keep their greenwaste stickers, which could be used at a later date.
