Curbside Bulk Trash Collection Temporarily Suspended
The Killeen City Council has approved a temporary suspension of curbside bulk pickup, beginning the week of Monday, May 30th - September 30th, 2022. This will help with an extreme staffing shortage and high turnover rate (a trend being seen across the country).
Citizens will still have full access to the City’s Transfer Station (12200 State Highway 195) where they can dispose of up to 300 pounds of bulk items per month of charge.
Only the container and brush will be serviced. If you require an additional container, you can order one with no fee, just the monthly charge of:
- 32G: $16.25/month
- 64G: $17.63/month
- 96G: $19.78/month
