About Bulky Goods Day

Bulky Goods Day is a free service offered once a quarter to City of New Braunfels residents. The City operates sites where residents drive up to drop-off unwanted, bulky items for disposal or recycling. Items can be disposed of at the landfill for no charge on designated dates. View the printable flyer, in English and Spanish.

Provided for City of New Braunfels residential ratepayers only - bring a current utility bill and photo ID to participate.

No commercial waste - residential garbage only!

Important: the last car in line at 11 o'clock will be the last assisted.

Help reduce wait times:

  • limit trips to one per event

  • load items by type

  • keep tires, scrap metal and construction materials separate from each other as much as possible.  

For example, tie items together such as fence slats in sets of 10 and lumber in sets of 4.
