Residential Trash & Bulk Waste

URGENT UPDATE 02/01/2022

“The [National Weather Service] is advising that there is severe winter weather headed our way. We have determined it is best for the safety of Pilot Point and our crews to delay the Thursday collection of trash and recycle to Saturday 2/5/22.

Since we normally run a commercial front load dumpster route on Thursday, we will run that tomorrow Wednesday 2/2/22.”
