Residential Curbside Pick Up Information

Residents can request that brush be picked up at their home. This service is provided to Round Rock residents that live within the Round Rock city limits and pay City of Round Rock taxes. Residential curbside brush pick-up is contracted through  Round Rock Refuse. *Request deadline is 4 p.m. Tuesday. Pick-up service will start on Wednesdays and continue into the remainder of the week if needed.

Inclement weather and other external factors can delay pickups. If there is an issue with the pickup for your brush, the resident will be notified via phone the reasoning why the pickup was unable to be serviced.

The service charge is $25 for the first five minutes and $1 for each additional minute. The charge for this service is based on the length of time it takes to gather the material utilizing a brush truck with a grapple arm. The fee will appear on the resident’s City of Round Rock water utility bill.

Round Rock Ice Storm Recovery Dashboard

In an effort to help residents decide the best course of action, the City created an interactive dashboard to track the progress of cleanup efforts. If your neighborhood still shows that it is part of the “Future Group – Start Date TBD,” it is safe to assume your neighborhood may still be a few weeks out from being served.
