Recycle center closed after fire at processing facility

April 7, 2021

The City of Bartlesville recycle center is temporarily closed due to a fire last week at the Tulsa Recycle and Transfer center.

The City transfers recycled items collected at the center, located on 10th Street east of Virginia Avenue, to TRT for processing.

“They had a lot of electrical damage to their facility as a result of the fire so they are busy trying to make those repairs,” City Public Works Director Keith Henry said today. “We have not been notified of when those repairs might be complete, but we will reopen our center as soon as they are up and running.”
