Georgetown Recycle & Solid Waste

Bulk Waste Disposal

NOTICE: Effective Feb. 6, 2023, curbside bulky-waste pickups will occur on your scheduled collection day. Pickups must be scheduled in advance by calling 512-930-1715.

Bulky Waste Disposal at Curbside

City of Georgetown residents with bulky-waste materials (furniture, mattresses, toilets, refrigerators, washers, dryers, etc.) can request a special bulky waste collection four times per year by calling Texas Disposal Systems at 512-930-1715.

Do not place items for collection on the curb more than 24 hours before your scheduled pick up. Extra charges may apply to certain items (a refrigerator for example) due to special handling requirements.

Total acceptable volume can be no more than 3 cubic yards. Volumes exceeding 3 cyd are $30.67/cyd.

To determine how many cubic yards you have, multiply length x width x height (in feet) and divide by 27. For example, 4’ x 3’ x 5’ = 60 cubic feet/27 = 2.22 cubic yards. Also, a 96 gallon cart is approximately one-half cubic yard.

Unacceptable items include:

    • tires
    • vehicle batteries
    • hazardous materials
    • construction waste (bathtubs, cabinetry, sheet rock)

Construction materials in good condition may be donated to the Habitat Re-store. Call 512-869-2070 for more information.

Clothing, housewares, and furniture can be reused by charitable organizations such as the Caring Place (512-869-4735) or Goodwill Industries at (512-868-9547). Computer components can be taken to Goodwill in Georgetown, where they are resold or recycled.
