Solid Waste

Overview​

The Solid Waste Division provides garbage and recycling collection service to over 24,000 residential and 2,100 commercial and industrial customers. We operate seven residential garbage trucks, five residential recycling trucks, six commercial front-load trucks and seven roll-off trucks. 

We also provide brush/bulk item pickup to all residential customers using 6 brush trucks. Brush is diverted from the landfill to the Temple-Belton Wastewater Treatment Plant to be recycled and used for compost and mulch.
