Bulk Waste Disposal
BULK WASTE DISPOSAL-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. Curbside bulky-waste pickups will occur on your scheduled collection day. Pickups must be scheduled in advance.
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:
- 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 or Goodwill Industries. Computer components can be taken to Goodwill in Georgetown, where they are resold or recycled.
BULK WASTE DISPOSAL AT THE TRANSFER STATION
For a fee, customers may bring bulky wastes to the Transfer Station at 250 W.L. Walden Drive; fees will be assessed at the gatehouse.
BULK WASTE DISPOSAL FOR MULTIFAMILY COMPLEXES & RESIDENTS OUTSIDE CITY LIMITS
City of Georgetown schedules (2) two, Community Collection Events each year, where any resident can dispose of tires, electronics, furniture, mattresses, and have paper shredded.
Otherwise, there are private companies that offer curbside, bulky-waste pickup.
TDS does not offer curbside bulky-waste pickup to multifamily complexes, because they are considered commercial properties. Residents should work with their complex on the best way to dispose of bulky items.
