The City of Killeen’s trash collections will run on an amended schedule during the New Year’s holiday.
The City of Killeen Offices are closed Friday, Dec. 31, therefore there will be no collection services on New Year’s Eve, Dec. 31. Thursday and Friday routes will run one day early.
Monday and Tuesday waste collection remain the same. Bulk collection days are Monday, Dec. 27 – Thursday, Dec. 30. The City will provide additional bulk pick up of Christmas-related waste, free of charge during those dates. Items include packages from gifts and up to four additional bags of trash for the week following Christmas Day. The bulk collection day will be the same as your scheduled trash collection this week.
Residents are asked to place garbage in plastic bags no larger than 33 gallons, or boxes no larger than eight cubic feet wide at the curbside at least four feet away from the roll-out container by 7a.m. on your special collection day. This collection does not include bulky items like furniture, tires, construction waste or appliances. A fee will be assessed for those items.
The City’s annual Christmas Tree Recycling event will be held Saturday, Jan. 8 at the Special Events Center from 9a.m. – 1p.m.
