Garbage Pickup

For information on what is safe to put down the drain, see this pamphlet.

Garbage Day

Effective March 26th 2014, Wednesday is garbage and recycling day.  Garbage is collected weekly while recycle is collected every other week.  Garbage and recylce should be placed at the curb by 6:00am.  Garbage can be put out the night before and empty containers need to be brought in (hidden from front view) by noon on Thursday.


Trash will not be picked up on the following holidays; New Years Day, Memorial Day, July 4th, Labor Day, Thanksgiving and Christmas.

The City of Manor and Allied Waste Services renegotiated their agreement which includes the Travis County MUD 2/ShadowGlen subdivision.  A change was necessary to 1) keep the rate you pay from increasing, 2) provide for a safer collection system, and 3) continue to provide a high level of service to you.  The following took effect January 18, 2010.


Allied Waste will only collect waste that is inside the container with the container lid closed.  Do not over fill the container.  To get the most out of your cart volume please crush, fold, or compact items before placing them in the cart.  Brush must be placed completely inside the cart for the regular weekly waste collection.


Recycle containers are available free of charge, maximum one per residence.

Recycle services currently include:

  • Newspapers
  • Magazines/catalogs
  • Office paper
  • School paper
  • Junk Mail
  • Plastic beverage and laundry product bottles/jugs (#1 or #2 on bottom)
  • Cardboard (must be flattened/bundled to not exceed 3’ x 3’ wide by 6” thick)
  • Aluminum cans
  • Steel cans

Bulk Collection

Bulk/brush collection services are provided twice (2) per year.  The bulk and brush collection normally occurs on the first week of March and the first week of September (but may occur on a later week of these months).  Total volume collected per semi-annual collection event is limited to not more than four cubic yards per residence (approximately equal to four 95 gallon carts).  Examples of acceptable items that will be taken by Allied Waste during the semi-annual bulk and brush collection are as follows:

  • Couches
  • Chairs
  • Mattresses
  • Tables
  • Dressers
  • Common Household Furniture

**Refrigerators, freezers, and/or air conditioning units will be taken only if the appliance is tagged by a certified technician stating that the item is free of any coolant.  (TIP:  when buying a new appliance negotiate for the seller to remove your old one.)

Brush collection must fit the following dimensions:

  • No more than four (4) feet in length
