GARBAGE COLLECTION SCHEDULE


  • NORTH of Loop 410 – Tuesday and Friday
  • SOUTH of Loop 410 – Monday and Thursday

* Note: See Service Collection Schedule at bottom of page*
The City provides solid waste residential collection services twice per week, through the Public Works Sanitation Department. The Sanitation Department collects the garbage containers from each residence by hand and empties them into the sanitation compactors. Each residence is responsible for providing their own garbage containers, as these are not supplied by the City. 

  • Garbage Collection Requirements


    Residential garbage collection is provided twice per week. Household garbage must be bagged and placed in a 32 gallon container with a lidCollection is limited to the equivalent of THREE 32 gallon size garbage containers per household.  There are many styles of containers in 32 gallon size, including those with wheels. (See the images below.) Containers may not be more than 32 gallons in size due to the fact that garbage collection is done manually. On collection day, containers must be set out in the alley, or on the street, so as to be easily accessible to the collector. After collection, garbage containers may be placed or stored in the alley abutting the property in an orderly manner so as to not block the alley.

Garbage Collection Times


Garbage collection occurs between 7:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. All garbage containers must be placed out before 7:00 a.m. on the day of collection, but not earlier than 6:00 p.m. the day before collection day. 
Garbage collection routes may vary from week to week, depending on work load. If garbage is placed out after 7:00 a.m. and the truck has passed, the truck will not return. Place the garbage out on the next scheduled collection day before 7:00 a.m. for pickup. There is no drop-off of household garbage at any time. For Holiday week collection information, see the "Service Collection Schedule" below.

Items NOT Collected

Household garbage may not contain hazardous or combustible materials, or construction and landscaping materials. Do not place hot ashes, coals, dirt, rocks, concrete, tile, shingles, sheet metal or household hazardous waste (paint, oil, corrosives, batteries, etc.) in the garbage containers. For the safety of all workers, do not place hazardous materials in with other items for collection, as serious injury may occur. The City has a FREE Hazardous Materials Drop-Off program for these types of items. See the Hazardous Materials page for more detailed information.

Residents who wish to have over-limit household garbage or small bulky items picked up may contact Public Works at 210-342-2341 x206 to obtain a surcharge estimate for these additional services. See the Surcharge Fees page for more detailed information.
