Solid Waste

Burleson Waste & Recycling mobile app

Life can get crazy and the last thing you want to miss is your trash collection. If you want a friendly reminder when to put your trash, curbside recycling and special collection items at the curb, we have an app for that! Go to the app store on your mobile device and search “Burleson Waste & Recycling.” Download it, type in your home address, and you are ready to go! If you don’t want a mobile app, you can find the same information on the ReCollect page on this website.
