Check your curbside recycling dates


The City of Round Rock implemented a new solid waste and curbside recycling program with Round Rock Refuse in January 2011.  Under this program, residents are provided two 96-gallon containers, one for garbage and one for recycling.  Garbage is collected once per week and recycling collected every other week.

Our Curbside Recycling program is single-stream recycling, meaning all recyclables are mixed together - no sorting required.
