Trash Collection

Brazos County Household Waste Collection

Brazos County provides the use of trash compactor facilities located around the county as a service to rural county residents to ensure proper disposal of household solid waste (cutting down on littering and trash burning).

A rural resident may deposit bagged household waste at any facility of his / her choosing. Please note that some locations handle large solid waste items while others do not.

Waste Collection Stickers

Use of the facilities is not free. Citizens must purchase validation stickers and affix these stickers to each item (typically a single large item or a 55 gallon bag) of waste. Stickers for all trash collection sites may be purchased in books of 10 for $6 per book at the following locations:

  • Brazos County Road and Bridge: 2617 Highway 21 West; Monday through Friday 8:00 am to 5:00 pm
  • County Clerk's Office / Brazos County Courthouse: Texas Avenue and 26th Street
  • Some area Justice of Peace Offices

Note: These rates are effective September 2008; updated November 2009, and prices are subject to change. Please contact the Road and Bridge department at (979) 822-2127 for the most up to date information.
