Don't Let Your Recycling Become a Monster!

Recycling doesn’t have to be scary, even though some items may present a real horror at our sorting facility. To make sure you’re recycling right, here are a few tricks to follow:

Always recycle plain office paper, junk mail, newspaper, dry cardboard, and clean and empty plastic or glass bottles, cans and jars. Aluminum cans are also great to recycle so long as they are clean and free from food and sticky debris.

Halloween decor such as spider webbing, pumpkins, string lights, plastic Jack-O-Lanterns, skeletons and other frightful finds should be discarded in your Big Blue trash cart. They are not recyclable.

Upcycle or re-sell costumes at a local charity shop, or find another use for them. Costumes, ropes, belts, cords, plastic bags and event fabric re-usable bags make a terrifying sight at our recycling facilities. We call them “tanglers” and they get caught up in our sorting equipment, requiring skilled workers to come in and cut them all loose.

Those paper cups and plates look great on your Halloween table, but don’t put them in the recycling cart. Most paper items used for food handling – including decorative or plain plates, cups, napkins and even paper towels – contain chemicals that keep them from breaking down when wet, so our paper mills can’t extract fibers from them to use in recycling. Toss them in your Big Blue trash cart, instead.

That Halloween candy sure is sweet, but the individual wrappers are too small for our recycling system to handle. Toss them instead.

Other items to trash? Greasy pizza boxes, and household containers that held toxic materials such as paint, paint thinners, acids, pesticides or herbicides, automotive fluids, pool chemicals, and/or drain cleaner. If the container is empty, put it in your Big Blue trash cart.

If a container still contains a liquid toxin, take it to the City's Household Hazardous Waste Facility at 1621 South Portland Ave.

If you're not sure whether an item can be recycled, remember our motto "When in doubt, throw it out." And if you want to verify what you can or can't recycle, check the lid of your Big Green cart or visit our website at www.okc.gov/recycle.

Happy Haunting!

UPDATE:

Crews with the City's Solid Waste Management division have begun clean-up in the areas impacted by the storms that struck the OKC metro on October 13.

Visit our collection progress map here: https://www.okc.gov/home/showpublisheddocument/25305/637702298803583726

Customers whose sustained tree and limb damage during the October 15 storm will need to put their debris to the curb in time for crews to begin working those areas on Monday, October 25.

For a detailed map of that area, click here: https://www.okc.gov/home/showpublisheddocument/25299

As always, customers are reminded to:

* Cut trees and limbs into sections of no longer than 10 feet each.

* Do not MIX trees and limbs in with regular bulky trash. Keep the piles separate and do not co-mingle them.

* Do not cover sidewalks or your water meter.

* Make sure trees and limbs are not near mailboxes, fire hydrants, vehicles or other obstructions. Crews need to be able to pick up the debris from their boom trucks.

* Leaves should be bagged and placed in your Big Blue cart for weekly collection. Do not set any bags out separately from your trash carts, or set them out with your Bulky Trash. The City is no longer picking up bagged trash that is not contained in carts.

The City of Oklahoma City - Government City Council on Tuesday voted to approve the MAPS 4 Implementation Plan, which is the guiding document for the program scope, project scheduling and budgets.

MAPS 4 program consultant ADG developed the plan based on the 2019 MAPS 4 resolution, Finance Department sales tax projections, information from City staff and project advocates/operators, publicly available plans and data, as well as previous MAPS experience.

MAPS 4 includes 16 projects:

Parks ($140 million)
Youth Centers ($110 million)
Senior Wellness Center ($30 million)
Mental Health and Addiction ($40 million)
Family Justice Center operated by Palomar ($38 million)
Transit ($87 million)
Sidewalks, bike lanes, trails and streetlights ($87 million)
Homelessness ($50 million)
Paycom Center and related facilities ($115 million)
Animal Shelter ($38 million)
Fairgrounds Coliseum ($63 million)
Diversion Hub ($17 million)
Innovation District ($71 million)
Freedom Center and Clara Luper Civil Rights Center ($25 million)
Beautification ($30 million)
Multipurpose Stadium ($37 million)

“The development of this MAPS 4 implementation plan has taken about the same amount of time as the MAPS 3 plan, and so above all I am grateful to everyone involved for keeping us on pace, even in the face of the challenging year and a half that we’ve experienced,” said Mayor David Holt. “I want to especially thank the MAPS 4 Citizens Advisory Board for its role in this process and its recommendation.

The program schedule is aggressive with almost all 16 projects moving forward within 15 months of plan adoption.

“Determining where in the schedule to place each project largely depends on operational capacity and availability of funds,” said MAPS Program Manager David E. Todd. “Because the sales taxes are collected over an eight-year period, the full $978 million is not available to start construction on every project right away. With careful planning and financial modeling, the program schedule presents a balanced approach with early movement on most projects.”

By March 2023, $110.5 million in operating/maintenance and capital improvement funds included in the program will be transferred to the MAPS 4 Investment and Operating Trust to allow ample time for the investment funds to grow.

“The operation and maintenance of all projects will ultimately become the responsibility of others,” said Todd. “The schedule provides time for some operators to accomplish necessary organizational growth and other preparations prior to the completion of construction. Other project operators will benefit from early phasing to avoid delays and secure events that support Oklahoma City economic activity.”

A Better Way program launches in Oklahoma City, offering beautification work to people who panhandle

A Better Way is launching in Oklahoma City on Sept. 13 – a local version of a groundbreaking employment program in Tulsa and other communities offering beautification work to people who panhandle.

A Better Way OKC uses mobile outreach with a van that visits people at panhandling hotspots, offering jobs beautifying public spaces instead of asking drivers and pedestrians for money.

“There are many ways that people enter homelessness and so there must be many ways out as well,” said Oklahoma City Mayor David Holt. “The answers aren’t simple. We have to offer a lot of different options to meet people where they are. We already have a national model with entities like Curbside, but a lot of people in our city were also intrigued and inspired by this program, and its success in Tulsa and other places. The best programs provide benefits to the community on many levels, and ‘A Better Way’ certainly does that. It provides a path for some of our residents who need it the most, while also beautifying our public spaces. My gratitude to everyone who made this program launch possible.”

“Our program in Tulsa has been a great success helping people gain competitive employment and access to services,” said Terri White, CEO of Mental Health Association Oklahoma. It is exciting to see it now in our city thanks to Mayor Holt, the Oklahoma City Council, the United Way of Central Oklahoma, Inasmuch Foundation and the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma.

The van will visit panhandling hotspots from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday, Wednesday and Thursday and offer people lunch and a $65 daily wage for work like litter removal and beautification in parks and other public areas.

The program also assigns participants to a case manager who will connect them with services they need like mental health services, substance use treatment, healthcare, housing, transportation and most importantly workforce training. The major goal of the program is to help people gain competitive employment and move to self-sufficiency. An employment specialist will network with local employers to find long-term work for successful participants.

Mental Health Association Oklahoma is providing day-to-day program management for A Better Way OKC. United Way of Central Oklahoma provided $120,000 in seed money, and Inasmuch Foundation contributed $10,000. Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma is donating boxed lunches for participants. The City of Oklahoma City is contributing $150,000 in start-up costs plus the van and program oversight.

Mental Health Association Oklahoma launched Tulsa’s program in 2018, modeling it on similar programs elsewhere. In 2020 A Better Way Tulsa served 265 people. Of those,130 were enrolled in mental health and other services; 73 found competitive employment and 4 people experiencing homelessness were permanently housed.

Ongoing community support will be key to the program’s success. Potential employers, service providers or donors can visit abetterwayokc.org for more information and contacts.

Homelessness in OKC

A Better Way is specifically tied to panhandling, but many people who panhandle also experience homelessness. A Better Way is only one of the City of Oklahoma City’s efforts to end homelessness.

Home OKC in the Planning Department manages City programs for people experiencing homelessness, including those tied to federal grants. Visit okc.gov/homeokc for more.

The Mayor’s Task Force on Homelessness recently developed its 2021 Strategies to Address Homelessness, a 24-strategy plan to work on problems locally. Read it here at okc.gov/homeokc.

MAPS 4 also includes $50 million specifically for homelessness, plus $40 million for mental health and addiction, $38 million for a Family Justice Center operated by Palomar, $17 million for a criminal justice Diversion Hub and more. Visit okc.gov/maps4 for details.

Along with Mental Health Association, the Homeless Alliance is also a leading partner among many nonprofits helping people who are homeless in Oklahoma City. Visit MHAOK.org or homelessalliance.org.

Could you please help me. I am being bullied. I live at Danforth Center, an Oklahoma City Housing Authority facility for seniors. Tonite, one of the bullies pepper sprayed me in the face! and yes the police were called. But I am afraid that things are escalating. I asked security if there was an anti-bullying organization I could connect with, he said he didn't know any. I AM OUTRAGED ! The housing authority has received a formal complaint from me about these people, and nothing is done.
