To provide the citizens, industries, and commercial customers of the City of Temple with a solid waste collection, recycling, and disposal service that is safe, reliable, efficient, and environmentally sustainable while valuing the health, safety, and quality of life of every citizen and visitor of our community.
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. The brush is diverted from the landfill to the Temple-Belton Wastewater Treatment Plant to be recycled and used for compost and mulch.
