Residential Trash & Bulk Waste

***UPDATE: A message from Waste Connections: "We are receiving new guidance about the amount of time that the Covid-19 virus will last on solid surfaces, waste paper, and cardboard being 72 hours. In an effort to reduce the risk of exposure to our TEAM Members and to insure that we focus on putrescible waste we will need to discontinue picking up items that are outside of the collection cart to include bulk items. Effective Monday, March 23, 2020 we will only service material that is contained inside of the collection carts. Bulk, compost, brush and extra items outside of carts will not be serviced in an effort to protect our TEAM Members from exposure.  Hilmar Bobadilla | Site Manager"***


Landfill Items

Residents are now able to dispose of trash that previously would have been taken to the Denton Landfill.  Waste Connections will have a dumpster available at their location on the 3rd Saturday of the month from 7:00 AM-12:00 PM.  Waste Connections is located at 410 S. Union St. Whitesboro, TX 76273.  Residents will be required to provide an ID and proof of residence at time of drop off.

Residential Trash Cart Service

All of your household trash and yard waste can be placed in your green trash cart. All of your trash must fit inside your cart with the lid completely closed. Since the driver never leaves the vehicle, no trash will be collected if it is on top of, or beside the carts, the most important thing to remember: you must have your cart on the curb by 7 a.m.

Pickup Information

Pickup occurs on the Monday and Tuesday of each week.

Residents on Main Street and north are collected on Mondays and residents south of Main Street are collected on Tuesdays

Carts

The cart should be placed at the edge of the driveway at the road with the lid completely closed with the handle facing the residence. Parked vehicles and other obstacles (i.e. gas meters, fences, electrical boxes, cable boxes, etc.) should be at least 3 feet from the cart.
