Bin Loan & Event Recycling

The MET can help you plan for recycling at your next event.         

As a nonprofit, governmental agency, The M.e.t. promotes recycling throughout the community. The M.e.t. loans recycling bins to schools, non-profit organizations and local events.  We offer a variety of bin types and can offer helpful recycling suggestions for your group or event. We offer a long-term loan program to help organizations start recycling and a short-term loan program to assist with events.

The M.e.t., in conjunction with other organizations like Tulsa Master Recyclers, has assisted with recycling at many local events, including FreeTulsa, DFest, Tulsa State Fair, Route 66 Marathon, Mayfest, Trailblazer, Greek Holiday Festival, Oklahoma Steak Cook-off, school carnivals, the Art of Barbecue, Tulsa Pride, Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure, and Tulsa Tough, among others.

If you are interested in applying for a bin loan or event recycling, call 918-584-0584 or email The M.e.t. at least two weeks prior to the event. To be considered for our Bin Loan Program, please download and fill out the appropriate form(s).

Once you fill out the form, we will review it and contact you if we need further information. We will also notify you whether you have been accepted into the program. Please be aware that there is a limited number of bins available. The bins on loan are your responsibility. Bins must be picked up from The M.e.t.’s warehouse, and all recyclables must be disposed of properly before returning bins to us. There will be a charge for dirty, missing or stolen bins.
