Trash / Recycling
Waste Management
Waste Management of Texas began providing trash collection and recycling services to Flower Mound residents and businesses on October 1, 2011. The town's five-year contract with Waste Management provides increased environmental and recycling benefits, reduced rates, and added convenience. The service includes:
  • Landfill access at a reduced rate
  • At-Your-Door household hazardous and electronic waste collection
  • Weekly semi-automated waste collection
  • Weekly single-stream, semi-automated recycling collection utilizing 95-gallon polycarts
  • Weekly bulk/brush pickup

The Collection Process

Semi-automated service ensures a collection specialist will follow each truck on foot to assist the automated service, minimizing spillage and missed trash.  Here are some tips to ensure a smooth collection process:
  • All trash items must be inside the cart and weigh no more than 175 lbs to ensure collection.
  • Contents should be bagged and lids closed to avoid littering.
  • Have your trash and recycling carts curbside by 7 a.m. on your collection day, and, according to Town Ordinance, no earlier than 8 a.m. the day before and no later than 8 a.m. on the day after your collection day.
  • Proper placement of your cart is within two feet of the edge of the street and handles should face your house, where the lid opens to the street
  • The Postmaster requires carts to be placed far enough away from the mailbox so the carrier can access the mailbox without interference.
