Find Your Collection Days

Waste Management collects trash and recycling once per week. Some residents might have trash and recycling pick up on the same day, but most do not. Use the links below to find your collection days.

Collections Bins

Boerne residents use a 96-gallon green wheeled bin with a green lid for items considered trash and a 64-gallon green wheeled bin with a yellow lid for recyclables.

Bins must be at the curb no later than 7 a.m. on collection days to ensure pickup and may be set out after 5 p.m. the evening before collection days.

  • Trash goes in the green bin with the green lid. All trash must be inside the bin. Waste Management will not collect trash outside the bin.
  • Recyclables go in the green bin with yellow lid. All recyclables must be LOOSE inside the bin. Waste Management will not collect recyclables outside the bin.
  • Do not overfill bins. Lids must close securely.
  • Avoid placing rocks, dirt, and other heavy items in the bins. Bins that cannot be lifted will be left so the customer can redistribute the contents for the following week’s pickup or for the bulky item collection.
  • Place bins five feet from obstructions, such as vehicles or mailboxes, and within one foot from the curb or fence. Place bins four feet apart with the handles facing your home or fence.
  • Do not obstruct the collection of bins or bulk items by parking vehicles in the vicinity.
