We finished collecting debris from the remaining areas as well as from areas submitted for pick up through the online form. Through Thursday, April 1, we collected nearly 14,000 cubic yards of debris from homes within City limits

If you still have debris, here are some options:

  • Georgetown solid waste customers who still have tree limb debris can drop it off at the Transfer Station, 250 W.L. Walden Drive, for $8.25 per cubic yard. There is no limit to how much customers can drop off. Click here for Transfer Station hours.
  • Texas Disposal Systems will collect bundled and/or bagged brush and limbs on your April brushy collection day, which is the first recycling pickup day of the month. Find your schedule: texasdisposal.com/waste-wizard

The curbside debris pickup service was provided free of charge to people who live inside City limits.

What if I live in the extraterritorial jurisdiction, or ETJ, but have solid waste and recycling service from the City of Georgetown?

What if I have plumbing or home repair needs?

If plumbing or home repair is needed, ask your contractor if they have a permit for the work from the City of Georgetown Building and Inspection Department. Not all repair work will require a building permit, but it is better to ask or check with the City of Georgetown. If you have questions about building permits or if a building permit is needed, please contact our Building and Inspections Department at 512-930-2550 or at permits@georgetown.org. The City is waiving some permit fees on a case-by-case basis. The Building and Inspections Department currently is very busy, so please leave a message, if needed, and staff will be in contact with you. If you are home during the limb or debris cleanup, please do not hesitate to reach out to the City of Georgetown employees who will be escorting the debris cleanup contractors.

What if I have other questions?

If you have additional questions that were not addressed in the FAQ, please contact City of Georgetown Customer Care at customercare@georgetown.org or call 512-930-3640.
