In May and June 2018, the city conducted public outreach asking residents what they would like to see in their trash and recycling services. An online and print survey was available and eight public meetings were held throughout the community, including an online town hall.
Over 1,700 surveys were returned, and city staff utilized this input to make the following changes to Burleson’s trash and recycling program.
Starting October 1, 2019, weekly collection of small brush and bulky items will start, monthly collection of large brush and bulky items will continue as is. The city’s Mulch Center’s last day of operation will be September 28, 2019. Also, starting October 1 residents can begin using their own garbage containers, if they would like. Solid waste can still be set on the curb in trash bags.
Recycling carts will be delivered to Burleson homes December 3 through December 20, 2019. Starting January 6, 2020, automated collection of recycling carts will begin, and residents will no longer be able to use the smaller recycling bins they are currently utilizing.
