The City of Southlake has offered weekly residential curbside pickup of recycling materials since April 1992. You will receive a recycling bin and lid when you establish water service on the second floor of Southlake Town Hall, 1400 Main Street. If you are a current resident of Southlake and have not received a bin or lid, please visit Town Hall, 1400 Main Street, Suite 200 Mon-Fri between 8am - 5pm. Additional bins are also available for purchase: $6/bin and $4/lid.
Republic Waste of Texas, Ltd, known locally as Duncan Disposal operates the city's curbside recycling program. Recyclable materials are picked up on either Monday, Tuesday, Thursday or Friday, depending upon where you live within the city. Please visit Southlake's website for a detailed map here. A Holiday Schedule is also available at this web page. Specific notices of alternate collection days will be posted to this area of the Web site at least two weeks in advance.
Recyclable materials can be placed loose in the plastic bin and do not need to be sorted by material type (this includes newspapers, magazines and household paper). The materials will be sorted at the Duncan Disposal Recycling Plant in Arlington.
Please make sure that all bottles, jars and cans are rinsed and lids are removed before putting them in the recycling bin. The bin should be set at the curb by 7 a.m. on your assigned collection day.
For more information, please contact Cristina McMurray, Assistant to the Director of Public Works, at (817) 748-8099.

Some household chemicals and similar products are too hazardous to place in garbage landfills. To accommodate these items, the City of Southlake conducts two Household Hazardous Waste dropoff days each year (at these events, we will be unable to accept explosives, radioactive, biological, or commercial wastes).
Please call (817) 748-8106 for the next Household Hazardous Waste collection day in Southlake. This program is coordinated through the Department of Public Safety, 667 N. Carroll. Proof of Southlake residency is required to participate.
Under an existing contract with the City of Fort Worth, Southlake residents also have the option of delivering household hazardous waste products to a collection center in Fort Worth. The Fort Worth Environmental Collection Center, 6400 Bridge Street, is open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. every Thursday and Friday, and from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. every Saturday. All household hazardous waste products listed below except tires will be accepted.
Residents should be prepared to show a Southlake water bill to prove their resident status. There is no cost to residents for the service, although the city pays $62 per dropoff regardless of the volume of items being delivered. As a result, city officials urge residents to limit their trips to the dropoff center, or to combine their household hazardous waste products with those of their neighbors to make a single visit.
