Fairgrounds Pollutant Collection
The next pollutant collection is November 2-3, 2013 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
We’re not “anti-chemical”, we’re “anti-storing-chemicals-in-your-home”. Storing even a half-bottle of drain cleaner makes your home, neighborhood, and planet a little less safe. If you have to use chemicals, buy what you need and use them up. If you have some left over, take them to our semi-annual Household Pollutant Collection. The collection is for residents of Bixby, Broken Arrow, Claremore, Collinsville, Coweta, Glenpool, Jenks, Owasso, Sand Springs, Tulsa and Tulsa County only, not businesses.

Items accepted include: household cleaners, pesticides, fertilizers, automotive fluids, cooking oil, batteries, all fluorescent light bulbs, small ammunition, smoke alarms, aerosol paint, hobby paint, pool chemicals, items containing mercury, and unused or out-of-date prescription medications.
Items NOT accepted at the event: latex paint, tires, computers, radioactive waste and commercial waste. Latex paint is not accepted because it is not hazardous. It is water-based and can safely disposed of by being dried out. Remove the lid and let the paint completely dry. Tulsa residents can place 2 cans of dry paint next to regular residential trash for pick up.
Transport pollutants to the event in the trunk of a car or the bed of a pick up truck. Trained volunteers will remove pollutants from your vehicle for you.
Batteries? Oil? Antifreeze? Don’t wait!
While you can take batteries, oil, and antifreeze to the Fairgrounds Pollutant Collection, there’s no need to wait in line if this is all you have. These products, along with recyclables such as paper, plastic, glass and aluminum, can be taken seven days a week to one of the area M.e.t. recycling centers.
