Al Clawson Disposal provides garbage pick-up for the residents on Tuesday mornings. By contract, they are only required to empty the blue canister provided to you. If you have extra garbage, there are options available to you!
1. The city has a dumpster located at the water tower yard on Water Works Road that can be utilized during the work week. You must contact the Maintenance Department at (512) 269-7335 to arrange a time. Items not allowed in the dumpster: brush or limbs, paint, chemicals, batteries, appliances containing freon, television sets, tires.
2. You can purchase extra garbage tags at city hall. This is good for larger items such as furniture. After purchasing tags, set the items out on regular garbage days with the tags attached. Please see fee chart for tag pricing.
3. If you consistently have extra garbage, you may want to consider a second canister at an additional $16.66 monthly fee. Contact city hall at (512) 898-5306 to discuss adding another canister.
The city no longer picks up limbs and brush. This was a service that was provided when the city had access to a chipper. The city recommends breaking apart smaller limbs and putting them in your garbage canister. You can haul larger limbs to the city wastewater pond during work hours. Please contact the Maintenance Department at (512) 269-7335 to arrange a time.
