In addition to this website, we have two Facebook pages, one on composting and one on living sustainably in Oklahoma. Please “Like” both and learn about what’s going on in the state and around the country related to recycling,
composting, reusing food and yard waste, and other current topics. Here are the links:
https://www.facebook.com/OkstateSolidWasteManagement. There is information about grants, fun projects, contests, as well as information you send us that would be of interest to others in the state. You may note that both sites have information particularly pertinent to Native Americans and to rural areas.
Those are groups we are especially here to serve. Please send relevant information that you would like to see posted to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Solid Waste Management Resource Trunks are funded by a grant provided
to Oklahoma Cooperative Extension Service by U. S. Department of Agriculture, Rural Development, and co-sponsored by the Oklahoma Recycling Association

Oklahoma is now a
member of the Resource Exchange for Eliminating Waste (RENEW).
This tool is designed to allow business, industrial or
manufacturing facilities to exchange materials that would
otherwise be discarded. Facilities that post materials can
avoid disposal costs, and possibly reduce their regulatory
burden. Searching available materials helps you find items for
your facility at a reduced cost, often free. Clickhere
