Holiday Recycling Begins Day After Christmas

Beginning Dec. 26, American Waste Control and Mr. Murph's annual 12 day Unboxing Christmas Campaign in conjunction with the M.E.T will get underway.

Instead of throwing away Christmas trash and waste, American Waste Control spokesperson Paul Ross is asking people to recycle materials such as cardboard, paper, plastic and aluminum into Mr. Murph recycling bins from Dec. 26 to Jan. 6.

There are over 100 Mr. Murph bins scattered throughout Tulsa.

People can also dropoff their Christmas trash at Mr. Murph's home facility at 1150 North Peoria.

At that location, there are also bins set up for recycling styrofoam, lights, electrical wires, extension cords and even Christmas trees.

Proceeds from the collection will benefit a nonprofit local business called the American Therapeutic Riding Center in Sand Springs.

Last year the American Waste Control recovered over 4,000,000 pounds of recyclables from Green Country. This year, they're expecting to smash the record.

Dropoff locations are open 24 hours a day.
