Temporary Closure of Recycling Drop-Off Center at Norman Transfer Station

Effective September 2, the recycling drop-off center at the City of Norman Transfer Station will be temporarily closed due to construction until September 24, 2021. Work is necessary to reconstruct the concrete drive access to the recycling area from the newly completed main drive access for the Transfer Station. 

Recycling is still available at the other three recycling drop-off centers located at:

  • Hollywood Recycle Center - McGee and Lindsey
  • Westwood Recycle Center - 2430 Westport Drive 
  • Fire Station #9 Recycle Center – 3001 E. Alameda

The City of Norman/Norman Municipal Authority awarded Contract K-2021-10 to the Landmark Construction Group for the construction of a new Household Hazardous Waste Facility and a new Container Maintenance Facility. The new Household Hazardous Waste Facility along with improvements to the Transfer Station site at 3900 Chautauqua Avenue has a construction cost of $1,396,000 and will provide a year-round location for residents to dispose of household items and chemicals that are not able to be disposed through normal trash service or the sewer. The Container Maintenance Facility, to be constructed at 3440 S Jenkins, has a construction cost of $931,000 and will provide a safer, more efficient workspace for the rehabilitation of dumpsters used for solid waste which will extend the life of solid waste dumpsters ultimately resulting in reduced operating costs for the Sanitation Division of the Utilities Department.
