Carts must be placed on the street surface and backed up to the curb by 7am. The truck drivers note the addresses that do not have their carts out when they go down the street and will NOT go back if you have forgotten.
Do not Over Load your trashcan. Because loose trash will spill into the street, overflowing trashcans will not be picked up.
During the week after a holiday, Allied Waste will collect up to 2 extra items: bags, boxes or bundled, that are outside your trash cart. These can be regular trash or yard waste but may not weigh more than 40 pounds each.
Bulky Waste - Up to 3 cubic yards on the 1st Wednesday of each month. Items that will not normally fit inside the 96 gallon cart such as stoves, hot water tanks, washing machines, bundled brush, yard waste, furniture and other large waste items. There is no need to call Allied Waste to arrange for bulky item collection, simply place the items out on the curb by 6:00am on the first Wednesday of the month. Allied will collect up to the 3 cubic yards or approximately 15 of the 39 gallon bags. (Refrigerators, freezers, and air conditioners must have certification by a licensed technician of CFC (refrigerant) recovery. Please call AWS for more information (512) 247-5647.)
Yard Waste - Yard waste will only be collected with bulky waste on the first Wednesday of the month or during the City of Austin semi-annual Large Brush pickup.
