The Solid Waste Department provides environmentally sound and cost effective waste management services in the form of residential, commercial, industrial, and institutional garbage collection and disposal that are an essential need of the community. These services are provided to approximately 36,000 residential and 4,600 commercial customers. A city owned and operated 237-acre landfill is managed for the end disposal of wastes originating in Waco and surrounding region. The department is a self-supporting entity that is not funded by city tax dollars. Funds for the department come from Solid Waste service fees.
