- Mayor Dewey Bartlett, Mr. Murph, Tulsa Recycle and Transfer
Tulsa Recycle and Transfer (TRT) is making history…introducing, Mr Murph! It’s a cute name that came with a price tag of a little over 5 million dollars to build, but oh boy has it been worth it. So far it’s been a valuable investment for TRT and Tulsa as a whole. Through the facility, we’re able to reclaim recyclables by sorting through the entire waste stream (both automatically and manually) and reduce the impact of trash on Tulsa and the overall environment.
The process is simple. First we use a magnetic separator to remove tins and cans and other metal objects. We then process the material even further to draw out glass, plastic, paper, and other reusables. What we can’t process moves on as residual material that gets taken to the landfill.
The efficiency we gain by having the ability to pull recyclables further reduces the impact on the environment and diminishes the footprint of landfills.
Like I said, cute name…but serious recycling.
If you’ve never seen a MRF up close and personal, I invite you stop by for a visit.
We’re located at 1150 N Peoria, Tulsa, OK 74106 in a recently renovated facility with easy access for people to drop off recyclables and do their part in making the environment cleaner.
You won’t believe your eyes…we’re even building a new viewing platform inside the MRF for people to view the whole operation.
Come by for a visit and see what we’re doing for Tulsa.
PS If you have recyclables to drop off, come to our location and drop them off at the entrance of our MRF transfer station area. We accept newspapers, cardboard, aluminum, tin/steel, plastic and brown, clear and green glass at our recycling center.
