The City of Lewisville encourages every resident to recycle, and the cost for recycling services is included in the basic refuse fee paid by residents on their water bills. Diverting materials from the landfill helps protect the life of the landfill, which enhances the ability of the city to contain future costs for solid waste collection services.
Please put items in your cart Clean, Dry, and Loose.
View our GIS map online and input your address to determine your collection day for trash, recycling, bulky waste, and yard waste. All services are provided on the same day of the week.
Residents are required to have the recycling cart placed at the curb or alley collection location by 7 a.m. on the scheduled collection day. Collection containers should not be set out for collection more than 24 hours prior to the collection date and should be removed from the collection point within 24 hours of collection date.
The only holidays that affect pickup are Thanksgiving, Christmas Day, and New Year's Day. Service is pushed back one day i.e. If Christmas falls on a Monday, then houses normally serviced Monday are serviced Tuesday, Tuesday houses are serviced Wednesday, etc.

Can't make our monthly event? There are places that accept small appliances, etc. around town and in North Texas. Check out our recycling resource tab for more information.
If you live in an apartment you can make a difference in our community by recycling at your apartment complex! Multi-family properties are required to provide recycling collection for their residents. Each apartment unit receives a container for collecting recyclable materials, and each complex will have at least one dumpster for recycling (multiple dumpsters for large complexes). When your container is full, you simply need to empty your recyclables into the designated dumpster at your complex, or follow the instructions provided by your property management if your complex has valet services.
If you carry your recycling to the dumpster, please place them loosely in the dumpster. No plastic bags please.
Both recycling and trash are green dumpsters, but the recycling dumpster has a yellow top and the trash has a black top.
Call us at 972.219.3699 or email with questions, concerns or requests for assistance and information.Don’t know what is accepted in the recycling dumpster? You can download a printable flyer about what is accepted. Print it out and post it in your apartment.
