If you currently have a roll-out garbage cart that you place curbside for Sanitation department to pick up twice a week. You may request a second cart by calling Utility Billing at (325) 646-9700 (deposit and additional rates apply).
Specific times vary, but your garbage must be at the curb at 7:00 a.m. to ensure pick-up. Please leave your cart out until 3:30 p.m. regardless of the time the driver normally picks it up, to allow for back up drivers, vehicle break downs and unforeseen circumstances.
Every cart has a number on it, which is assigned to your address. If your cart goes missing and you have found one that you believe is yours, please call (325) 643-4200 to get the number for your cart to make sure it is the correct one.
