Roll-Off Container Service
Roll-off containers are large, open top containers used primarily on construction sites to place construction and demolition debris. The roll-off containers are available (by volume) in 20 cubic yard, and 30 cubic yard.
Construction or demolition debris normal to a construction site such as:

- Appliances Such as Refrigerators
- Asbestos Containing Materials

If prohibited items are found in the container, they must be removed before the container is serviced. If found in the container when unloading at the Transfer Station, the customer will be billed for the removal and proper disposal of the prohibited items.
A fee is charged to pick up, transport, unload, and return the compactor to the site. A fee is also charged for the weight of the compactor contents. A weight ticket is made at the scale of the Transfer Station, and given to Utility Collections for billing.
The city provides collection services for compactors owned by the customer. Should your business decide to purchase a compactor, please coordinate the specifications with the Commercial Operations at 254-501-7785, since the compactor must be compatible with the city's hauling equipment. The city does not own, rent, or repair compactors.
The owner of the compactor or representative must be present when the compactor is disengaged for hauling, and to clean the overflow trash. Do not load compactor beyond hauling capacity which is approximately 30,000 pounds.
Do you have a need for the pickup of brush or large bulky waste such as furniture, stoves, hot water heaters, chairs, construction/demolition waste, etc., which are all prohibited from being placed in the dumpster container? Call Commercial Operations at 254-501-7785 and request a price quote for the pickup and disposal. The pickup is done by a special collection vehicle with crane and grapple. This vehicle must have safe clearance for its operation. Place items to be picked up away from:
- Low Hanging Wires
- Parked Vehicles
- Other Obstacles
Brush is green waste from tree limbs and shrubs clippings. Do not co-mingle brush with junk, trash, or other items. The brush must be free of any other trash. Do not put pallets in the pile. Do not put treated lumber or fence boards in the pile.

Some special provisions apply to air conditioning units and refrigerators. Units containing a refrigerant must be certified by a licensed technician to be free of the refrigerant before the items can be picked up.
