Trash, Recycling, and Composting Collection Services for Your Home
Residential Curbside Solutions
We are a rapidly growing provider of solid waste collection services in Central Texas. Our fully integrated facility – the first of its kind permitted in the state of Texas – is able to process recycling, composting and landfilling all at the same location, meaning that TDS can provide the exact waste solution you need for your home.
Trash Collection Cart
Our residential trash cart is perfect for your household trash. This cart is available in all areas of our residential service, and in various sizes to best suit your needs. Residential trash services with TDS include trash container delivery to your home, where trash is picked up on a weekly basis. Find your trash collection schedule here.
Recycling Collection Cart
Our residential recycling cart is perfect for your recyclable materials. This cart is available in most residential areas that we service. For your convenience, TDS utilizes single-stream recycling, meaning that you and your family don’t need to separate recyclable materials. Recycling carts are typically picked up every other week, but schedules may vary by location. Find the recycling schedule for your home here.
Green Waste Collection Cart
Our residential green waste cart includes collection service for green waste, including tree trimmings, yard clippings, branches, brush and more. TDS transfers this green waste to our facility in Austin for composting, which is typically used as a soil amendment or as a component of potting mixes. This cart is available in select residential areas.
Residential Waste Wizard App
Texas Disposal Systems offers our residential customers access to our Waste Wizard, a free app and online widget where you can sign up for collection reminders, service alerts and sync pick-up days straight into your digital schedule. This app is available on both the Apple Store and Google Play.
The Waste Wizard also provides a “What Goes Where” feature, providing answers to residents about where to sort their waste. We also integrated an educational game to test your waste sorting knowledge!
Bulky Item Collection Services
We offer bulky item collections for materials that don’t fit into normal containers, like furniture, appliances, doors, carpet, and other bulky items.
While contracts vary from city to city, TDS will generally collect three (3) cubic yards per bulky pickup. This is roughly about the size of three (3) washers side-by-side. (Please see our TDS Bulky Assistance Flyer for a visual aid on how to measure the items for your bulky pick up.) These items should be placed on the curb for collection no later than 6 a.m. on the day of service. TDS will not enter a residence to collect items.
TDS will not accept hazardous materials, such as paints, chemicals, dead animals, sheet glass or fiberglass insulation. TDS will also not collect items like dirt, concrete, or construction material. Other limitations may exist. Please contact Customer Care at (800) 375-8375 to schedule a pickup and verify your local ordinances.

Video: Residential Single-Stream Recycling
Texas Disposal Systems accepts recycling through single stream processing. This process is faster and more convenient for residents, while we handle the sorting at our on-site Materials Recovery Facility (MRF). At the MRF recyclables are manually and mechanically separated, processed, bailed, and then sent to market for second-life applications.

Texas Disposal Systems collects residential yard waste, food scraps, and other compostables for processing at our on-site composting facilities in Central Texas. Your compostable waste processed in large outdoor windrows. Over time, the materials are churned and shifted until they are fully decomposed into usable organic products for resale.
