Chief Jimmie Richey with the Collinsville Police Department visited the JANICE K. POLLARD EARLY CHILDHOOD CENTER (ECC) this morning with Perla Boggs, author and illustrator of the "Stop and be a Thinker," safety program. "Perla feels very strongly that children need to know what to do to protect themselves and stay safe. In our busy world we sometimes forget to review and practice what needs to be done." forward by Joyce Jech. We hope you'll take the time to talk with your student about what they learned today.

Collinsville/Owasso Tire and E-Waste Tire Collection Event
The Metropolitan Environmental Trust, The M.e.t., is hosting a tire recycling event along with E-Waste (Electronic) Collection. This event takes place at Destiny Life Church, 14003 E. 116 St. N. (Owasso Hwy 20 & Hwy 169) on Saturday, October 21, 2017 from 9:00AM-12:00PM.

Tires can be brought to this event to be recycled for free. Tires must not have rims, no commercial tires, no tractor tires, and no dealers are allowed.

E-Waste items have a plug-in cord or run on battery and include: cameras, computer batteries, computer towers, copiers/scanners, fax machines, keyboards/mouse, laptops, microwaves, phones, printers, power cords, small appliances, UPS systems and VCR/DVD players. Unaccepted items include: air conditioners, large appliances, items over 50 pounds, light bulbs, and refrigerators. CRT computer monitors, the large box types, and TV’s DO require a processing fee. Computer monitors are $10 and TV’s are $21. Citizens are encouraged to go to the M.e.t.’s website and pre-pay for these items prior to the event ( and click on the green “E-waste” button).

Director Graham Brannin wants citizens to do the responsible thing with these items. “Tires are a mosquito breeding ground and regarding E-waste, we want the public to recognize that their outdated items should never go to the trash. The M.e.t. will properly recycle these items and keep them out of the landfills.” In June of this year, West Nile Virus was found in six areas around Tulsa, according to the Tulsa Health Department. We want to do our part to limit the mosquito population, thus reducing citizens’ risk of West Nile Virus.
The M.e.t. has eleven centers in Tulsa Metro area offering free drop-off recycling. The centers that accept electronic waste are Sand Springs, Claremore, Central Tulsa, Broken Arrow, Downtown Tulsa, and 81st and Lewis.
