County residents get recycling day

CLAREMORE — Claremore residents will have the opportunity to dispose of household pollutants when the MET recycling program hosts a  collection event from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday and Sunday at Expo Square in Tulsa.

Residents can dispose of household chemicals and toxic hazards in a safe manner at the event by delivering items to the fairgrounds from the 15th Street entrance through Gate 7.
The MET will be accepting household cleaners, toxins, yard-care products, pesticides, acids, caustics, thinners, household flammable liquids, all florescent light bulbs, firearm ammunition .50 caliber or smaller, smoke alarms, thermostats, oil, antifreeze, oil-based aerosol and hobby paints.
Staff will be accepting prescription medications for disposal.
The items will be disposed of in a safe, environmentally responsible manner, according to MET representatives.
Citizens are reminded to transport hazardous waste to the event in the trunk of a car or bed of a pickup truck. Those brining chemicals should wear gloves while handling and transporting the materials.
Workers at the event will remove the items from vehicles.
Some items will not be accepted including latex paint, commercial waste, pressurized gas cylinders, water reactive chemicals, explosive, dioxins or radioactive waste.
For a complete list of items accepted, visit or call (918) 584-0584.
The City of Claremore will also be offering a similar event next month once a scheduled date has been finalized. The city also offers year around recycling at 810 Ramm Road in cooperation with the MET and the Rogers County Work Training Center.
More information about the city’s program can be found at
