Excess Garbage & Bulky Items
Brush & Branches
Curbside Green Waste collection is for yard waste that can be placed into the kraft paper bags, each weighing less than 40 pounds, or that has been bundled with twine or rope in lengths less than four feet, weighing less than 40 pounds each.
If your yard project includes a large amount or weight of brush or branches, you will need to schedule a special appointment for collection. There is fee for this service. Call the Solid Waste and Recycling Division for information on appointment availability, restrictions, fee schedule and to schedule a pick-up.
Furniture & Appliances
Bulky items like furniture are not collected curbside, unless you have scheduled a pick-up for these items. There is a fee for curbside collection of five (5) over-sized furniture type items and you must make an appointment. Call the Solid Waste and Recycling Division for information on appointment availability, restrictions, fee schedule and to schedule a pick-up.
Furniture can also be brought to the next quarterly Bulky Goods Drop-Off, but appliances are not accepted. Bring appliances without Freon to the City Recycle Center.
Excess Garbage Tags
Occasionally, you may have excess bagged garbage that will not fit in your garbage cart. In order for any garbage to be picked up, it must fit in your cart with the lid closed, or if outside the cart, it must have a City-issued excess garbage tag attached to the bag. You can purchase five tags for $10 plus tax at:
- City Municipal Building - 424 S Castell Ave
- New Braunfels Utilities - 263 Main Plaza
