Brushy waste drop-off, community cleanup Saturday

The city of San Marcos will host its brushy waste drop-off and community cleanup for residential garbage and recycling service customers on Saturday, April 14 from 8 a.m. - 1 p.m.

 A high turnout is expected and the cleanup will close it early if the roll-off containers fill before 1 p.m. However, brush drop-off will be accepted until 1 p.m. even if the Community Cleanup must close early. 

 In addition to brushy waste, the city will accept bulk junk and furniture, recyclables and hazardous waste as part of the community cleanup.

 People wishing to drop off brush and other “green waste,” as well as recyclables, bulk junk and hazardous waste, must provide a copy of a city utility bill and unload their own material at the site. Green waste that will be accepted includes trees or brush trimmings, leaves and grass clippings. Brush containing barbed wire or other metals will not be accepted. 

 The brush drop off can be reached by taking the San Marcos Animal Shelter entrance at 750 River Road and following the signs.

  The service is open only to residential solid waste customers in San Marcos. Residents are invited to load and take ground up mulch at the site as available.

 Residents also have the option of using the new green waste carts to dispose of brushy waste.

 Please check the city website at www.sanmarcostx.gov/brush or call Resource Recovery at 512-393-8407 for additional information.
