Waste Container Services
918-886-7777commercial waste managment Tulsa
Q: What makes your containers better than the big guys?
A: Our dumpsters are on casters, so they can be moved if needed. Also, all our dumpsters have lids and are properly painted as required for city code.
Q: What if I need a larger dumpster than you have available?
A: We can offer multiple dumpsters that can be placed in different areas of your property to cut down on carrying your trash. We can gather up to six days a week. Larger dumpster companies' containers often are too tall to access conveniently without the use of a step stool. This is an added safety concern.
Q: Where does my trash go, once picked up? Is it recycled?
A: Everything we collect is taken to Covanta Energy. Once at Covanta, all metal is mechanically separated and the refuse is converted to clean, renewable energy.
Q: Are you licensed and insured?
A: Yes, we have licensing through the Tulsa County Solid Waste Department, and we carry larger policies than are required.
Q: What if I don’t have a place for a dumpster at my business?
A: Some customers (many in strip malls) leave trash in bags or regular trash cans out over night for us to pick up early in the morning.
Q: How am I billed?
A: We send out a monthly bill statement. We accept credit cards or offer monthly personal collections on the first Tuesday of every month.
Energy-from-Waste (EfW or waste-to-energy) facilities offer a safe, technologically advanced means of waste disposal while also generating clean, renewable energy, reducing greenhouse gas emissions and supporting recycling through the recovery of metals.
How EfW Works
1. Municipal waste is delivered to the facilities and stored in a bunker.
2. The waste is transferred to a combustion chamber where self-sustaining combustion is maintained at extremely high temperatures. The building around the tipping and bunker area is maintained under negative pressure; this air is used in the combustion process to control odor.
3. The heat from the combustion process boils water.
4. & 5. The steam from the boiling water is used directly, or more frequently, the steam drives a turbine that generates electricity.
6. Electricity is distributed to the local grid.
7. Ash from combustion is processed to extract metal for recycling. It is then combined with residue from the air pollution control process (see items 9 and 10).
8. The combined ash is either disposed of in a monofill (where only ash is stored) that receives only that waste, used as cover material at a conventional landfill, or landfilled with other waste.
9. All gases are collected, filtered and cleaned before being emitted into the atmosphere. Gas from the combustion process is managed with state-of-the-art air pollution control technology that operates to state and federal standards.
10. Emissions of particulate matter are controlled primarily through a baghouse (fabric filter).
11. Criteria and other pollutants and operating parameters are monitored to ensure compliance with permit conditions.
