Slaughterville plans spring recycling event

NORMAN — Slaughterville has set its annual spring recycling event for 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. April 21 at the northeast corner of Highway 77 and Slaughterville Road.

This event provides a convenient way to dispose of unwanted items that usually are difficult to discard. Items such as tires, car batteries, used motor oil, oil filters, anti-freeze and scrap metal in any form including old washers, dryers, refrigerators, bicycles and hot water tanks are some of the things typically collected during recycling day.

Trash, mattresses and non-metal furniture will not be accepted.

During the past 16 years, Slaughterville residents have recycled 7,385 gallons of used motor oil; 81 roll-off containers of scrap metal; 1,189 car batteries; and 8,977 tires.

Area residents also will be able to recycle e-waste, including computers, monitors, printers, laptops, keyboards, computer mice, cell phones, TVs, stereos, fax machines and other electronic devices.

Because there is a substantial cost for recycling e-waste, the town will cover the cost for Slaughterville residents, but people who live outside town limits will have to pay a fee to recycle e-waste. Address verification will be required for e-waste items.

Slaughterville Town Administrator Marsha Blair encourages residents in and around the area to take advantage of the day.

The town is requesting volunteers. For more information, call town hall at 872-3000.
