Waste-to-Energy Plant To Remain Open

The Walter B. Hall Resource Recovery Facility will remain open come July 1, said WBH President Thomas Simpson.
The 20-year contract with the City of Tulsa expires June 30. There was speculation the plant would close.
But the facility will operate in the marketplace to provide trash disposal.
“We hope the City of Tulsa will be among those customers who continue to take advantage of this valuable resource to keep the environment clean,” said Simpson. “The citizens of Tulsa have invested $180 million in this facility and now the City of Tulsa has an opportunity to utilize this valuable resource for years to come at a fraction of its historical cost.”
On July 1, the tipping fees at WBH will represent a significant discount from fees currently charged under the Tulsa Authority for the Recovery of Energy Service Agreement, which expires at the end of this month. According to Simpson, the new fees will be the lowest of any waste-to-energy facility in the nation and will also be at least $10 lower than the average national landfill rates.
The announcement is in contrast to earlier reports that the facility will close on July 1.
