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.
