By KWGS News/Mayor Addresses Issue:


Tulsa, OK – Tulsa recycling collector has two weeks. Two weeks to cut the number complaints about its service or have its contract with the city terminated. The Tulsa Authority for the Recovery of Energy, or TARE Board, issued the ultimatum at yesterday's meeting.

The contract with RR Waste Solutions went into effect on June first. Since that time, there have been almost 2,000 complaints about the service from Tulsa 14,000 voluntary recyclers. Most of the complaints have been about missed pick-ups.
