Broken Arrow Center Now Collecting E-Waste
July 23, 2015


The Metropolitan Environmental Trust (The M.e.t.) is now offering electronic waste (e-waste) collection at their Broken Arrow center located at 302 North Elm in Broken Arrow. This is made possible by a public/private partnership with Natural Evolution, Inc., an electronics recycling company located in Tulsa.

Items which are accepted are: 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 40 pounds, light bulbs, monitors, refrigerators and televisions.

The M.e.t. has over ten centers in Tulsa and surrounding cities offering free drop-off recycling. This is the third center to accept e-waste. Other centers accepting e-waste are located at the 11th and Cincinnati center in downtown Tulsa and the central center at 34th and Sheridan.

Meg Sutherland, Public Relations Coordinator for The M.e.t. explains that, “Laptops and other electronics are usually expensive purchases that lose value very quickly. There is always a newer/better version just around the corner. So when the older items aren’t re-sold or re-purposed, they likely head to landfills. The opportunity to recycle electronics not only benefits the environment, but it’s free to our customers and ensures job security for our employees.”

Traci Phillips, with Natural Evolution, Inc says “We are very pleased to be able to help create the opportunity for the citizens of Broken Arrow to recycle their e-waste. It makes recycling responsibly that much easier if there is a convient local opportunity versus having to pay to have it picked up or having to drive a long way to recycle.”

For more information, please contact Meg Sutherland at or at 918.584.0584.
