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 inside the cart, bagged, with lid closed, and placed at the edge of the street before 7 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. The cart handle should be closest to the curb.
  • 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.
  • Brush and Bulky waste collection is available at no extra charge on a call-in basis with some limitations. You must call (254) 299-2612 to request service.
  • Please leave all carts at the residence if you move to a different location. Carts are City of Waco property.
