Refuse Disposal & Recycling

Contact
Contact Refuse Disposal and Recycling at (325) 236-6313. The Drop-Off Center is located at 807 West Broadway and is opened from 10:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. Monday thru Friday and from 10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. on Saturday.

Overview
The Department's drop-off center provides for area residents and businesses to inexpensively place their waste for transit to a certified disposal site. It also allows the public to recycle metal, glass, cardboard, paper, tires, used motor oil and filters, and brush and yard waste at no cost. 

Waste Reduction
The center's availability reduces the potential for illegal dumping and supports the 40% waste reduction goal set by Texas Legislation of 1991. The Federal Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) have set operational requirements in their rules and regulations.

Other Responsibilities
The Department is also responsible for the routine maintenance of the City Type IV portion of the landfill which operates under State Permit 50B. The Type IV landfill is located at 3000 W. Alabama and is opened from 8-12 Monday-Friday and 10:00 a.m. - 2:00  p.m on Saturday.  Routine maintenance includes the repair of erosion and sink holes and the growth of vegetation.
