City Crews Collecting Storm Debris from areas in Tornado’s Path

The Streets and Stormwater Department has begun collecting storm debris in areas of Broken Arrow most impacted by the recent storm. Those neighborhoods include the Morrow Ridge, Carriage Crossing, Fairway Park, Country Lane Estates, Bentree and Battle Creek subdivisions.


Instructions for pickup:

  • Debris must be placed curbside by Sunday morning, August 20
  • Limbs must be cut into lengths of 8 feet or less.
  • Do not place debris next to mailboxes, fire hydrants or over water meters.
  • Separate tree limbs and branches from other debris such as fencing or roofing materials. Crews will not collect debris unless green waste is separated from building materials.


Residents in the Morrow Ridge, Carriage Crossing, Fairway Park, Country Lane Estates, Bentree and Battle Creek subdivisions do not need to call and schedule a pickup. 


If a resident’s debris pile is not collected in the first phase, it will be picked up in the second phase of pickup. 


Cleanup of minor twigs and small branches will be the resident’s responsibility.


Those near the affected area but outside of these subdivisions may call the Action Center at 918-258-3587 before Aug. 20, if they feel they should qualify for the pickup.


After both phases are completed, any further debris pickup will have to be scheduled through the City’s Action Center and will be charged as a normal bulky pickup.

Other Options


Residents who do not want to wait for the free curbside debris pickup have several options:

  • TULSA MULCH SITE - Residents may take their green waste storm debris to the Tulsa Mulch Site, located at 2100 N. 145th E. Ave. Drop-off is free with a driver’s license or utility bill showing a Broken Arrow address.
  • REGULAR TRASH PICKUP - Tree limbs may be set out with the normal, twice-weekly trash pickup; however, limbs and brush must be cut into four to five-foot lengths and tied into one-foot diameter bundles.
  • SPECIAL BULKY WASTE PICKUP - Call the Action Center at 918-258-3587 to schedule a bulky waste pickup. Bulky pickup occurs weekly and costs depend on the size of the load. Paid bulky pickups will be given first priority over the above free storm debris pickup that will occur between Aug. 9-20. Cost is $36 up to 5 cubic yards and $75 for 6-15 cubic yards.
  • LANDFILL - Residents can haul their storm debris to the Waste Management Quarry Landfill, located at 13740 E. 46th St. N. Standard landfill rates will apply.
