Killeen Aids Copperas Cove in Storm Clean Up Efforts
Killeen residents should expect delays in curbside brush collection.
The City of Killeen Solid Waste Division is assisting the City of Copperas Cove in its storm damage recovery efforts. Regular trash collection schedules will not be affected, but regular brush collection will be delayed over the next two weeks as a result of this aid.
Brush may be left curbside without penalty until schedules allow for its removal. Alternately, brush may be taken to the Transfer Station, located at 12200 SH 195. Residents receive disposal of up to 300 pounds of excess waste per household once per month by presenting a current utility bill. A fee of $3.08 applies to each additional 100 pounds.
The City of Killeen apologizes for inconveniences caused by this delay in service and appreciates your patience as we assist our neighbor city.

HOUSEHOLD HAZARDOUS WASTE EVENT GUIDELINES:
These collections are for residential materials only. No materials will be accepted from business, industry or agricultural operations. Residents should carefully load containers into their vehicles. Glass containers should be cushioned to prevent breakage.
Keep chemicals in their original container, with an original label preferred. Place leaking containers in a spill-proof container or bag.
Remain in your car! At the collection site, attendants will remove the unwanted materials from your vehicle. Do not get out of your vehicle at the drop-off site. If you have a car that has a trunk that must be opened with a key, be prepared to give the key to the attendant.
