Get Rid of Unwanted Tires and Electronics

The Metropolitan Environmental Trust in cooperation with RTR Environmental and Tulsa Community College will host, “Tireless Tulsa”, a FREE tire recycling event along with E-Waste Collection on Saturday, March 12th from 9:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m.  The event takes place at the North East Campus of TCC located at 3727 East Apache Street.

“Unattended tires are consistently a problem in Oklahoma for many reasons. They are a breeding ground for mosquitoes and with the recent outbreak of the Zika Virus, it is critical that we are proactive and remove the opportunity for this disease to spread in and around Tulsa,” says Graham Brannin, Executive Director for the M.e.t. 

Residents of Bixby, Broken Arrow, Coweta, Claremore, Collinsville, Glenpool, Jenks, Tulsa County, Owasso, Sand Springs and Tulsa can bring their tires to this event to be recycled.  Tires must not have rims and no commercial tires are allowed. Drop-offs are limited to ten tires per person
