Yard Waste Carts (Green)
Yard waste (green) carts are serviced the same day as your trash pick-up (but by a different truck). The blue (recycling) and green (yard waste) carts are collected every other week, on alternating weeks.
- Residents will be provided, at their request, one 95 gallon blue (recycling) and/or green (yard waste) cart at no extra charge.
- You can trade in your smaller blue or green cart for a larger cart at the Cobbs Recycling Center or the administrative offices at 501 Schroeder Drive.
A calendar with the blue (recycling) and green (yard waste) weeks as well as collection schedule changes due to holidays can be found here. A guide to using your yard waste cart can be found here. When using your green yard waste cart, please remember to place only loose (unbagged) yard materials within it, put it out at the curb by 7 a.m., and place it at least 3 feet away from obstructions such as mailboxes and parked cars. Bulky and brush pick-up is available on request. Please call Customer Service at (254) 299-2612 with questions or requests. Para informacion en Espanol – (254) 299-2612.
