Recycling Collection Days

CWD picks up recycling from Keller homes once per week. Use the interactive map below to search your address and find your collection day:


Recycling Containers

  • 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 calling CWD at 817-795-9300 or two 18-gallon capacity bins with lids at no charge from the Utility Billing department at Keller Town Hall (817-743-4060).
  • Place recycle carts/bins at curbside by 7 a.m. on collection days to ensure pick-up.
  • 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.
