Bulk Trash


For items that do not fit in the cart, a secondary truck will service these items. The second truck may arrive before or after the automated truck to service extra trash.

  1. Bulk Items
  2. Trees / Limbs
  3. Special & Disabled Services

Residents may set up to 7 items outside of their cart on a weekly basis. "Bulk items" includes bags and/or large items such as brush, appliances, etc. Put these out on your normal service day. Items too big to fit in your trash bin should be placed on the curb next to the trash cart.

Note: Certain CFC-containing appliances, such as refrigerators, freezers and air conditioning units, require a $25 disposal fee. Contact Central Texas Refuse (CTR) directly at 512-243-2833 to make arrangements.
