Trash / Recycling

Republic Services

Republic Services will provide trash collection and recycling services to Flower Mound residents and businesses beginning October 1, 2016. The town's five-year contract with Republic Services includes the services you are currently receiving as well as enhanced services. These services include:

  • Free landfill access once per month with proof of residency up to 10 cubic yards at the Camelot Landfill
  • Household hazardous waste and electronic waste collection from your home
  • Weekly semi-automated waste collection
  • Weekly single-stream, semi-automated recycling collection utilizing 96-gallon carts
  • Weekly bulk/brush pickup up to 4 cubic yards
  • Senior discount of $1.50 per month off your bill for residents 65 and older

The Collection Process

Semi-automated service ensures a collection specialist will follow each truck on foot to assist the automated service, minimizing spillage and missed trash. Here are some tips to ensure a smooth collection process:

  • All trash items must be inside the cart and weigh no more than 100 lbs to ensure collection.
  • Contents should be bagged in your trash container and lids closed to avoid littering. Your recyclables should be loose (not bagged) in your recycling container.
  • Have your trash (blue container) and recycling (green container) carts curbside by 7 a.m. on your collection day, and, according to Town Ordinance, no earlier than 8 a.m. the day before and no later than 8 a.m. on the day after your collection day.
  • Proper placement of your cart is within two feet of the edge of the street and handles should face your house, where the lid opens to the street
  • The Postmaster requires carts to be placed far enough away from the mailbox so the carrier can access the mailbox without interference.
  • Please place only normal household trash inside your container. Non-compactible items such as bricks, concrete, and tiles should not be placed inside your container. Please see "Bulk and Brush Pick Up" for special instructions. 

If your trash or recycling cart is in need of repair or replacement, please contact the Town of Flower Mound Customer Relations Division at 972.539.7378 or complete the online request form. Please view the trash and recycling map to determine your designated collection day.
