Euless was the first Tarrant County city to implement recycling in apartments. In that same year, Euless began the blue bag recycling program. Since then, Euless has worked to increase recycling participation, while maintaining a low recycling rate. Now, Euless again has created an innovative recycling program that will make recycling more convenient for our residents and reduce waste. We believe this to be the first hybrid recycling program in all of Texas.
For service beginning March 1, 2013, you can choose the method of recycling that works best for you. You may choose to continue participating in the blue bag recycling program. You may also request either an 18-gallon recycling bin or a 65-gallon recycling cart that will be delivered to your home.
Choice – You may choose to recycle in a blue bag, bin or cart. It is simply a matter of what method works best for your household.
Cost efficient - If you choose to keep your rate as one of the lowest in the region, you may continue using blue bags and utilize the lowest rate option.
Convenience – If you choose to use a bin or cart, it will be delivered to your curb upon request.
Euless residents age 65 and older may apply for the senior citizen recycling rate. Please call the Water Utilities office to receive this rate.
The City of Euless has contracted with Community Waste Disposal (CWD) to provide residential single-family once a week curbside pickup service and multi-family recycling. Euless residents who live in multi-family complexes that participate in the recycling program can recycle materials in the booted container that is located on their property. Residents receive initial service/billing information from the Water Office.
Recycling is now single stream and does not have to be separated. All recyclable materials may be placed in one container.
