Garland Environmental Waste Services Department has received notice from our vendor that Hurricane
Harvey has impacted the supply of polyethylene, a key material used in the production of blue recycling
containers. Due to the unavailability of this material there will be a delay in shipment of blue containers
needed for the final implementation phase of Single Stream Recycling Collection Program scheduled to
begin in October/November 2017.
Information on the new implementation time frame will be announced
once we receive a firm container shipment commitment from the vendor.
Please call 972-205-3500 or email EWS@GarlandTX.gov if you have any questions. Continue to check
for updates on our website, GarlandEnvironmentalWaste.com.
Don't Go Tarpless!
The operator of any vehicle arriving at the Hinton Landfill, wood recycling center, or Garland's transfer
station which does not have a suitable cover placed over the vehicle's load, shall pay a surcharge of
$20 per City of Garland Code of Ordinances, Chapter 52, Article II, Sec. 52.47(F). The transfer station
and landfill sell tarps for $10 each, but covering and securing your load from the beginning of your trip
will be more effective at preventing litter.
