PUBLIC WORKS - SOLID WASTE & RECYCLING SERVICES

Bulky Waste

Bulky Waste Collection

(Consists of larger items that do not fit in your cart.)

Residential Solid Waste Service includes the collection of one 5'x 4'x 4' (maximum) bulky waste pile.
(That is about the size of a pick-up truck load.)

*Additional fees may apply to larger piles. To request bulky waste collection, please call (254) 299-2612.
Waste generated by residents is serviced by Waco Solid Waste.  Residents are those who occupy a home and pay for solid waste services via a Waco water bill.

Commercial Bulky Waste

Waste that is generated by commercial sources (i.e., contractors and businesses) from tenant evictions, or are on vacant lots, will be subject to additional fees. For more information or to arrange for collection, please call (254) 299-2612.

Appliances with refrigerant (Freon), such as refrigerators and air conditioners, left at the curb must have the refrigerant removed by a certified technician and be tagged as such before being placed curbside for pickup. Appliances without certified removal tags will not be picked up.
