Cleburne Solid Waste Service provides an integrated solid waste management system for collection and disposal or residential trash, household hazardous waste, brush, yard waste, and recyclables in a format that is timely, safe, efficient and environmentally responsible. Specific residential services include:
  • Weekly Automated Trash Pickup - You have a choice of 64- or 96-gallon cart, and the first cart is furnished at no charge. The second cart is furnished for a one-time non-refundable fee of $60. The third (and any additional) care will incur a $60 non-refundable fee per cart and an additional $5 per month fee per cart.
  • Monthly Bulk / Brush Pickup - Please check the bulk/brush map for your zone and pickup dates. No eviction or remodel / construction debris will be collected. As is written in the ordinance, bulk pick-up is limited to residential and non-profit customers.
    • Zone 1 is picked up during the week of the first Monday of the month.
    • Zone 2 is picked up during the week of the second Monday of the month.
    • Zone 3 is picked up during the week of the third Monday of the month.
    • Zone 4 is picked up during the week of the fourth Monday of the month.


  • Out-of-Cycle Bulk/Brush Pickup (as needed) - Effective Aug. 14, 2018, the Sanitation Department will now proactively collect out-of-cycle bulk/brush trash it discovers and will apply a $30 collection fee to the resident's utility bill. Those that wish to avoid the charge must remove the bulk trash from the public right-of-way and place it out during the assigned week.
  • Residents can also schedule an out-of-cycle bulk/brush pickup by purchasing an out-of-cycle tag from the utility office. Out-of-cycle tags are $30.
  • Porch Pickup for the Disabled - Please have a physician fill out a Cart Assistance Form, and a site visit will be required.
  • Free Dump - One free dump is allowed per month (limited to 800 pounds) at the Transfer Station with a current City of Cleburne water bill that shows residential trash pick up service. Additional waste will be charged at the rate of $42 a ton for Cleburne residents who have City trash service.
Below are two programs that are centered around providing free television and computer recycling opportunities for consumers:
