Our mission is to collect the citizen’s refuse and debris in the most expedient, safest, and reliable way. Sanitation collaborates with Recycling Center and Landfill Division to collect City’s solid waste, brush, and recycling.
The Recycling Center is located at 202 W. Lee. It is our goal to provide a convenient and efficient method for diversion of renewable resources from the City Landfill and to educate the process of recycling throughout our community.
*Note: In the case of a lost/stolen roll-out, please contact Marsha Narron at firstname.lastname@example.org or 361-595-8094.
Solid Waste Collections Division collects garbage from over 7,500 homes and businesses each month. Occasionally, crews miss a house or business. Sometimes the crews are not able to service a roll-out or dumpster due to a discrepancy with the roll-out or dumpster. If there is a problem that prevents collection, they will call in to the office or turn in a discrepancy list at the end of the day noting the problem they encountered.
Your garbage must be at the curbside by 7 a.m. on your scheduled pick-up collection day. Once your roll-out is serviced, please remove your roll-out from public view as soon as possible or by 8PM. This will also prevent your roll-out from being stolen or damaged by vehicles.
Brush pickup and white goods pickup schedules and zone maps are available below.

Place your brush out next to the curb the weekend BEFORE the START DATE of your zone to insure it is picked up by the City. Brush that is brought out after our crews have gone thru your neighborhood is considered LATE and will not be picked up by the City. Please do not place closer than 5 ft to any meters or up against a fence, make sure brush is not blocked by cars. Brush must be cut in lengths of 5 feet or less. Maximum size of brush pile: 6’ deep, 6’ high, 5’ long (6X6X5). The Brush Crew does not pick up brush at businesses, apartment complexes, churches or vacant lots. TWO PILES PER CUSTOMER ONLY.
