Waste Management also provides Bulk Waste services. Residents are allowed to place one cubic yard of bulk waste at curbside with their waste and recycling carts on the same collection day each week. One cubic yard of bulk waste is the equivalent of the addition of two of the 96 gallon waste carts or an item the size of a refrigerator, small sofa, large chair, or washing machine.
Those needing to remove an amount of bulk waste exceeding the one cubic yard allotment have two options for disposal. The items may be taken to the New Boston Landfill at cost to Texarkana, Texas residents with a water bill, with the exception of construction or remodel debris and/or items. These are charged on a per ton basis. A second option is to make arrangements for the removal of bulk waste items by contacting Waste Management (903) 794-4111 to schedule a pick-up and make payment arrangements.
