The Solid Waste Division provides garbage  and recycling collection service to over 18,000 residential and 2,000 commercial and industrial customers. We operate nine automated residential route trucks, one commercial side-load truck, five commercial front-load trucks, and five roll-off trucks.

We also provide brush/bulk item pickup to all residential customers using 6 brush trucks. Brush is diverted from the landfill to the Temple-Belton Wastewater Treatment Plant to be recycled and used for compost and mulch.
