Covid – 19 Trash and Recycling Service Information 
In order to reduce employees’ potential exposure to bacteria, the City is requesting residents bag all landfill trash and keep recyclable items loose. This limits employees’ contact with these materials.

Texas Disposal Systems (TDS) continues to operate normally in Georgetown. The transfer station on Walden Drive remains open to the public. TDS staff are collecting landfill trash, recycling, and yard/green items on normal schedules.

If there are any necessary updates or changes to residential services, the City will work with TDS to notify customers. Updates also will come through the TDS Waste Wizard app, which people can download and sign up for through Google Play and the App Store.
