The City of Killeen is offering a free additional solid waste service next week to help residents dispose of bulky items and prevent illegal dumping.

 

Items such as furniture, appliances, tires, brush and building materials will be picked up at curbside on scheduled regular collection days.


Bulky items like furniture, mattresses, appliances and boxes will be collected free. There is no charge for the first three cubic yards, up to 3 feet X 3 feet X 9 feet. A fee of $7.50 will be charged for each additional cubic yard.


Each household may place one brush pile and one demolition material pile, up to 4 feet X 4 feet X 12 feet each, at curbside for free collection. A fee of $7.50 will be charged for each additional cubic yard.


Up to eight car and light truck tires up to 22 inches will be accepted at no charge. Each additional tire will be charged a $3.15 fee. Tires larger than 22 inches and tractor tires will not be accepted.


Piles should be separated and placed at curbside no earlier than 6 p.m. the day prior to collection and no later than 7 a.m. the day of collection.
