Tulsans for the most part like the new trash and recycling system that was implemented a month ago, a new poll shows.
An Oklahoma Poll of 311 likely city voters, conducted Oct. 25 to Nov. 1, indicates 29 percent strongly approve of the service, while 26 percent somewhat approve, 14 percent were uncertain, 7 percent somewhat disapprove and 24 percent strongly disapprove.
The margin of error is plus or minus 5.56 percentage points.
Soonerpoll.com’s Bill Shapard said that, since the full system only went into effect Oct 1., the approval level should grow as long as there aren’t any major problems.
“We found that when people got used to changing their behavior, they ended up liking it,” he said.
