Solid Waste


The Solid Waste Division provides garbage  and recycling collection service to over 18,000 residential and 2,000 commercial and industrial customers. We operate nine automated residential route trucks, one commercial side-load truck, five commercial front-load trucks, and five 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.
