Phase 6 Recycling Cart Delivery Schedule:

Blue Week: Jan. 23 – 26

Yellow Week: Jan. 30 – Feb. 2

 

WHAT DO I DO WITH MY OLD BIN?
You can recycle your red bin by placing it in the blue container, or you can drop it off at the Garland’s Recycling         

Center, located at 1426 Commerce St., in the designated area. All returned bins will be recycled.

DO I HAVE TO PUT MY RECYCLABLES IN MY CART?
Yes. Crews will only collect recyclables placed in the cart. Do not place material loose on the ground or in a red bin.

HOW DO I SET MY CART OUT PROPERLY ON COLLECTION DAY?
Please place your cart curbside before 7:00 am on your collection day. Make sure the cart is accessible to the                               

collection crew. Do not place it behind trees, mailboxes, lamp posts, or other obstructions. If many people in your

neighborhood park on the street, be sure to put your cart near a curb cut so the crew can reach it efficiently.

CAN I TAKE MY CART WITH ME IF I MOVE?
No. Carts are registered to an address and are the property of the City of Garland. Please leave the cart if you move.

WHAT IF MY CART IS STOLEN OR DAMAGED?
If your cart is stolen or damaged, contact Environmental Waste Services customer service at 972-205-3500

or email EWS@garlandtx.gov

 

 

Don't Go Tarpless!

The operator of any vehicle arriving at the Hinton Landfill, wood recycling center, or Garland's transfer
station which does not have a suitable cover placed over the vehicle's load, shall pay a surcharge of
$20 per City of Garland Code of Ordinances, Chapter 52, Article II, Sec. 52.47(F). The transfer station
and landfill sell tarps for $10 each, but covering and securing your load from the beginning of your trip
will be more effective at preventing litter.
