Recycling Bins

  • Recycling must be contained in a CWD recycling cart or bin clearly marked recycling receptacle. Residents may request one 65-gallon capacity cart with attached lid by phoning CWD at (817-795-9300, opt. 2) or two 18-gallon capacity bins with lids at no charge from the Utility Billing department at Keller Town Hall (817-743-4060). Additional bins may be purchased for $6 each, and additional lids may be purchased for $4 each.

  • Place recycle carts/bins at curbside by 7 a.m. on collection days to ensure pick-up. However, recyclables cannot be out more than 12 hours prior to collection day.

  • Customers should keep contents secured to prevent scattering. Residents may set out additional materials, such as broken-down corrugated cardboard or newspapers in paper bags or bundles, next to the cart or under the bin.

Christmas Tree Recycling/Mulching Program

The city's Christmas tree recycling program will be available from Dec. 20, 2019 to Jan. 19, 2020.  Drop off your "clean," live Christmas tree in the Equestrian Arena parking lot of the Keller Sports Park. No flocked trees are allowed and all decorations, bags, tinsel, ornaments, lights, plastics, nails and stands must be removed from the trees to avoid potential injury to the workers and to ensure clean, quality mulch.   

Free mulch is later available to the public on a first-come, first-served basis.
