Solid Waste Information

City Solid Waste Services

Garbage is picked up every Wednesday. Please have your 96-gal trash cart at the curb by 7:00 am to insure you are serviced. You are only allowed to put out your 96 gal trash cart each Wednesday. If you have additional trash you can contact the Utility Department at the City to purchase bag tags t 512-295-8845. The cost of a bag tag is $6.92 for each tag that can be affixed to a 30 gal trash bag.

The City allows residential customers to transport and deposit Yard Waste at the TDS landfill facility for no additional fee one day per month during the facility’s normal operating hours. Yard Waste will be limited to 5 cubic yards per customer per month and will exclude commercial generated yard waste. Anything transported must be either tarped or tied down. TDS will verify eligible customers by utility bill or other means acceptable to the City. TDS may refuse to accept any Yard Waste contaminated with other solid waste debris, in which case they will notify the City of reasons for rejection. If special assistance is needed unloading please notify attendant when checking in.

The City holds a clean up twice a year in the spring & fall. During this time you may bring large items and dump for free. No tires, batteries, oil, paint, toxins or freon appliances will be taken. A City of Buda utility bill along with your Texas driver's license must be shown in order to drop off trash at the clean-up site, located off Garrison Road behind Buda's City Park. Watch for a notice on your utility bill with the specific dates.

We also offer a 10% Senior Discount on Sanitation. Residents age 65 and older must supply the Utility Dept. with a copy of their current State issued ID in order to qualify for this discount.
