Environmental Services Department Offers Spring Cleaning Help
Doing a little spring cleaning? Help with getting rid of extra household trash, yard waste and old furniture is just a phone call away.
For a small fee, the City of El Paso Environmental Services Department will send a Special Collection crew to your home to pick up items that don’t fit in your trash and recycling bins. Special collection services are available from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday to residents, who pay a solid waste disposal fee to the City of El Paso.
The service is not available to businesses. The minimum fee for a special collection pickup is $25 and it covers up to 5 cubic yards of waste. Each additional cubic yard of waste is $5. (Five cubic yards is the equivalent of enough waste to fill 10 city-issued trash bins or the bed of a standard size pick-up truck.)
Items that may be collected through this service include:
• Extra household waste
• Barbeque grills
• Yard waste (dirt, rocks, concrete not accepted)
• Lawn mowers
• Mattresses & box springs
• Refrigerators & Freezers
