Household Hazardous Waste

PROGRAM UPDATE:

Our program has changed! Beginning January 2, 2018, vouchers are only issued through an online platform. No longer will you have to drive to a city-facility nor manage paperwork. Simply visit the voucher website: recycle.georgetown.org. Fill in the necessary information and you will receive your voucher via email if you qualify. No printing necessary.

Household hazardous waste (HHW) products should never be poured out on the ground, down the drain, or thrown out with regular household garbage. Improper disposal can cause injury from contact or contaminate groundwater and drinking water. The City of Georgetown offers a voucher program for the safe and proper disposal of Household Hazardous Waste materials.

These materials cannot be received from a commercial business nor a personal home business. Only residential materials can be accepted through our voucher program.

Vouchers allow residents who have an active City of Georgetown utility account and Texas Disposal Systems solid waste services to dispose of household hazards at the Williamson County Recycle Center at 495 CR 156, which is northeast of Georgetown on FM 971. These materials cannot be from a personal home business nor from a commercial account.

  • Vouchers cover 100 percent disposal costs for in-City customers and 50 percent of disposal costs for out-of-City.
  • One voucher per household may be requested every three months.
  • Once received, the voucher is redeemable for 30 days.

If there is adverse weather present please call (512) 864-3240 before taking your HHW to inquire about any weather-related closures. Heat, cold and storms can prevent the acceptance of HHW, so please call first to ensure they are accepting HHW that day. Thank you.
