The Garbage and Recycling Services Division provides the following residential collection services:
Regular collection is route based. To get your pick-up schedule, call 409-842-1483
Heavy trash is collected weekly on your regular pickup day. The service is limited to single-family residential customers. Heavy trash from any other entity must be transported to the landfill.
Heavy trash includes:
Heavy trash is NOT collected by city crews from the following:
Please note that two days are allowed for each area. All material must be stacked neatly in separate piles and not under low overhead utility lines or trees.
Citizens who live on a corner lot should stack bulk trash as far as possible away from the roadway intersection, while still stacking the trash on their property. These Citizens should make certain that all drivers who travel through the intersection in any direction have a clear unobstructed view.
All other holidays are regular work days for collections and the landfill.
When any of the above listed holidays fall on a collection day, the collection schedule will shift to the following day. This will result in the last collection day being on the Friday of that holiday week. For instance, there will be no collection Thanksgiving Day (Thursday), therefore, the regular Thursday collection day will be moved to Friday.
If one garbage container is not sufficient for your needs, additional containers are available.

The Beaumont City Council voted to implement a voluntary single stream curbside recycling program to start on October 1, 2016.
Those wanting to participate would have to pay $58.00 for a recycling container and a monthly service fee of $11.50. Participation in the program is available to all residents of the City of Beaumont on a volunteer basis. Recycling collection will occur once per week on your current trash pickup day.
Please complete the application below.
All “allowable materials” must be placed in the recycling container and placed at the curbside in order to be collected by the City of Beaumont.

The City recycles yard waste through our composting program. Approximately 25% of all materials collected at the curb by city trucks is yard waste, which is composted and returned to citizens at no cost. In order for us to compost this material, it must be put curbside separate from your other waste, and not put into your 90-gallon trash container. If yard waste is not separated, it cannot be composted.
For the best service, please see the following tips:
Used motor oil and filters generated from “do-it-yourself” oil changes are collected from curbside each garbage collection day. A maximum of five gallons will be collected per visit.
Please follow these guidelines to ensure that your used motor oil is collected and recycled:

Citizens with proof of Beaumont residency (utility bill, driver’s license, etc.) will not be charged for landfill disposal if they haul the debris themselves from their single family residences.
Contractors such as roofers, lawn services, tree trimmers, etc., will be charged for disposal. There is also a charge for disposal of trash from businesses regardless of who the hauler is.
The South East Texas Regional Planning Commission holds regular collection events for household hazardous waste in our area.

This is only a partial list. If you have any questions about potentially toxic materials, or you would like the date of the next collection event, contact SETRPC at 409-899-8444, Ext. 7520, or visit setrpc.org.
Each year, millions of tons of leaves, grass clippings, tree limbs, weeds, organic debris and other yard wastes end up in Texas landfills. This volume represents about 20 percent of all trash placed in landfills. It costs Texans more than $250 million a year to collect and dispose of yard wastes.
Putting these materials to use instead of throwing them away can save money and preserve and protect the environment for all Texans. Click here for information and tips on composting from the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality.
The City of Beaumont offers a number of free services to help citizens keep their neighborhoods clean and free of trash and litter, including loaner trash bins and loaner garbage trucks, and neighborhood cleanup days.
Individuals and organizations also can participate in our Adopt-A-Street program. The program requires a two-year commitment to keep a specific stretch of roadway litter-free. Participants are recognized with a street sign, and can have a group photo under the sign. The photo will appear on the city’s home page.
