Garbage and Recycling

The City of New Braunfels provides the garbage, recycling, and green waste collection services for those living within the city limits. The City issues each residence a green 96-gallon cart for garbage and a blue 96-gallon cart for recycling. Smaller 48-gallon carts are available and extra carts are available, though fees may apply for extra carts. Green waste (small brush, grass, and leaves) is collected using city-provided or self-purchased kraft paper bags. Limited city-provided bags are found at New Braunfels Public Library, The City Recycle Center, McKenna Gym, and Landa Recreation Center.
