Responsible for the curbside collection of garbage and recycling, including twice-a-week garbage pickup, weekly recycling pickup and bulky waste pickup.

Automated Curbside Recycling :: Basics

Launched in June of 2013, automated recycling collection is now available city wide.

New residents should submit a request for a new recycling cart through our Issue with my Cart page.

A 65-gallon cart will be delivered free of charge. Recycling is collected once a week by an automated CNG collection vehicle.

To ensure pick-up, recyclables should be placed at the curb no later than 7 a.m. on your collection day. Carts should be stored out of sight during non-service days.

Residents with additional questions may call 817-459-6778 for assistance.

Our curbside recycling program success depends on our ability to keep contaminants such as food, textiles, hazardous materials and other non-recyclables out of our recycle carts. Please make sure to remove food residue from all containers and rinse out jugs and cartons. Remember, if the item is not pictured, it is not accepted in our curbside program. If you are unsure whether an item is accepted, feel free to email us at recycling@arlingtontx.gov .
