Free bulk trash collection for Fall ‘Killeen’ Up next week

Fall Killeen Up 2021 Flyer

Annual fall cleanup event scheduled for Oct. 11-15

KILLEEN, Texas (Oct. 7, 2021) – The City of Killeen will be conducting a fall cleanup event (“Fall Killeen-Up”) during the week of Oct. 11 – Oct. 15. The City was unable to provide the Spring Cleanups in 2020 and 2021 due to COVID-19, so we have made this an annual Fall Cleanup event going forward. During this pickup, residents are permitted bulk collection on their regularly scheduled trash collection day only.

Items such as furniture, mattresses, appliances and boxes will be picked up at curbside on the same day as the regularly-scheduled weekly pick up day. There is no charge for the first three (3) cubic yards (3’X3’X9’); a charge of $7.50 will be incurred for each additional cubic yard. Refrigerators containing freon will incur a $42 charge for the CFC evacuation.

No tires will be collected during the event. Tires can be disposed of at the Killeen Recycling Center (downtown) or Transfer Station (Hwy. 195); fees do apply.

No brush collection will be offered during this cleanup event. Brush collection service will resume on the following week, beginning Monday, Oct. 18.

Items should be placed at curbside no earlier than 6p.m. the day prior to your regularly scheduled collection day and must be curbside no later than 7a.m. on the morning of your regularly scheduled collection day.

Collection Schedule:

Regular day                            Collection Date
Monday                                      October 11th
Tuesday                                      October 12th
Thursday                                    October 14th
Friday                                          October 15th 

This collection does not include rock, dirt, deceased animals, or liquid waste. Household hazardous waste materials such as pesticides, paint, oil, chemicals or batteries are also prohibited and will not be collected. A full list of household hazardous waste is available at www.killeentexas.gov/recyle.

For more information about the upcoming Fall Killeen-Up collections, please call (254) 501-7785 or email sw-info@killeentexas.gov.
