Seasonal Information

Christmas Trees at curbside:
Live Christmas trees are collected from residential curbside by the Waco Solid Waste Services Department during “green weeks”.  Residents should place undecorated trees at the curb in front of their property near their grey trash cart. Christmas trees will be mulched with other green materials.

Keep Waco Beautiful is hosting its annual "Chipping of the Green" Christmas tree recycling event on January 5th at Paul Tyson Field from 10-3pm. Bring your tree & family and watch how we mulch it up and go home with a sapling to replace the one that was cut down for the holidays! #ReduceReuseRecycle

Automated Trash Collection (Grey Carts)

Residents with residential trash service must use a wheeled grey cart provided by the city for household trash. A second cart is available for an additional $4 per month.

  • All of your trash must be inside the cart, with lid closed, and placed at the edge of the street before 8 a.m. on your collection day.
  • Place the cart with arrows on the lid towards the street, with wheels of the container at the edge of street or at curbside.
  • Please keep a 5 foot distance between all carts or items to be serviced and any obstacles, such as parked vehicles, mailboxes, utility meters, overhanging trees or power lines.
  • Return the cart to its storage area (garage, utility room, or the back yard) before the next morning.
  • Bulky waste collection is available at no extra charge on a call-in basis.
  • Please leave all carts at the residence if you move to a different location.
