Beginning on February 1, 2019, the new residential garbage collection fee will be $24/month ($22 for seniors 65+). An additional garbage cart may be requested after March 1, 2019 for an additional $5/month.

Texas City has not raised
garbage collection rates since 2012, despite the landfill and private
hauling companies passing several price increases to the City over the years.
This adjustment brings the city closer to covering the actual cost to collect residential waste and to provide many other solid waste services not offered by other communities.
When comparing to other cities, consider the level of service. Texas City provides the most comprehensive solid waste service in the greater-Houston area, including:
Driveway collection is provided to physically challenged citizens who are sole residents at the address where service is requested, unless all other residents at the service address have disabilities which prevent them from placing waste items at the curb for collection.
