Need a way of diverting re-usable resources from the waste stream, Tulsa? We thought so and decided to do something about it!
Our new and improved Material Recovery Facility or Mr. Murph as we call him uses state of the art processing equipment to separate two and three dimensional recyclables by size, allowing residents to mix recyclables placed in our Mr. Murph recycling container.
We’re now able to process and reclaim almost 400,000 pounds or 200 tons of recyclables a day including cardboard, paper, plastics, aluminum, steel and glass.
With this new technology, American Waste Control has reached out into communities across Tulsa, partnering with local municipalities, civic organizations, schools and churches to bring a convenient and easy approach to recycling with full service Mr. Murph mini drop-off sites.
American Waste Control now has over a 100 Mr. Murph bins throughout the Tulsa metro market, providing no cost recycling options to Tulsa residents who can now place their recyclables into one container with no sorting needed.
Our recovery rate is as high as 95% and anything that doesn’t get recycled goes to our newly installed waste to energy plant at our landfill, American Environmental Landfill, where trash is being harnessed for nearly 5000 homes in Oklahoma.
