Due to the icy conditions, we are not running routes today, January 22nd. We will ALWAYS prioritize the safety of our people. Please keep your carts curbside and we’ll collect missed areas and missed commercial stops throughout the week. Thank you for your understanding. Please share and spread the word.

At American Waste Control, we’re delivering a huge one-two punch in our effort to reuse and recycle our city’s waste. Any waste material that we’re not able to process through our Mr. Murph recycling facility is being sent to our new Waste to Energy processing plant at American Environmental Landfill and turned in to power.

Our system relies on methane-rich gas made by decomposing garbage at our landfill. After capturing the gas, we’re using generators to convert it into electricity. We’re then able to deliver that electricity to a local power plant to power over 4800 homes around our landfill area.

What Does That Mean for Your Business?

As a valued customer, you can rest assured, you’re part of a team that’s helping Tulsa become even more beautiful and eco-friendly. Not only are you helping conserve both natural resources and energy, but you’re sending a clear-cut message to your customers that you’re passionate about protecting our planet. That’s a good thing!

Terms and Conditions

Container placement and usage:

All containers will be placed on a hard or paved surface to prevent property damage. If a customer requests placement on an unpaved surface, this could result in increased costs if inclement weather prevents removal on the date requested. Costs could include: (1) a trip fee based on location and no less than $50, and (2) additional lease fees at current rental rate until ground conditions allow for removal. If the container is placed on an unpaved surface at the customer’s request, the customer assumes all responsibility for any increased costs and any damage to the ground or grass this may cause.

Due to safety concerns, please do not attempt to move a container once placed at your site. If you need a container moved before final pickup, please call customer service at 918-446-0023.
