About Automated Trash Collection (Grey Carts)

Residents with residential curbside 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 bagged, bags tied and inside the grey cart. Carts should be at the edge of the street before 7 a.m. on your collection day.
  • NO bags on the ground or personal trash cans.
  • Place the cart with arrows on the lid towards the street, with wheels of the container at the edge of street or at curbside. The cart handle should be closest to the curb.
  • Please keep a 6 foot distance between all carts or items to be collected. 
  • Carts and brush or bulky should be 6 feet away from parked vehicles, mailboxes, utility meters, overhanging trees or power lines.
  • Return the cart to its storage area before the next morning.
  • Bulky waste collection is available at no extra charge on a call-in basis with limitations. You must complete an on-line form or call (254) 299-2612 to request service.
  • Carts are City of Waco property. Please leave them when you move.
