Trash and Recycling Collection in Kyle, Texas: Schedules, Lookup Tools, and More



Kyle, Texas provides trash and recycling collection services to residents through a partnership with Texas Disposal Systems (TDS). This article provides an overview of trash and recycling schedules, collection days, lookup tools, and other key details for Kyle households.

Trash and Recycling Collection Schedules

  • Kyle provides weekly curbside trash and recycling collection on designated days depending on your neighborhood.

  • Trash collection occurs once per week. Recycling collection alternates between weeks – one week is plastics/aluminum/metal cans, the next week is cardboard and paper.

  • Collection days start as early as 7:00am so it’s important to have bins curbside the night before your scheduled day. Collection times vary throughout the day.

  • If your collection day falls on or after a holiday, pickup is delayed by one day through the end of that week. View the holiday collection schedule.

  • Separate yard waste collection occurs every-other week on your second collection day. Place leaves, grass, brush in paper yard waste bags curbside.

Finding Your Collection Day

There are two easy ways to find your neighborhood’s collection day schedule:

TDS Waste Wizard Lookup Tool

This online tool provided by TDS allows you to enter your address and view a customized calendar showing your trash, recycling, and yard waste collection days.

  • Visit the Waste Wizard site and enter your Kyle address.

  • Your collection schedule will display with a calendar you can print or add to your digital calendars.

Kyle Collection Zone Map

The city provides a collection zone map showing neighborhood collection days.

  • Find your neighborhood on the map and note the letter code.

  • Use the key to determine your collection days based on the letter code.

  • For example, neighborhoods in Zone A have trash collection on Monday and recycling/yard waste on Thursday.

Trash and Recycling Bin Placement

Follow these guidelines for curbside bin placement on collection days:

  • Place bins at the curb or alley line the night before your scheduled collection day. Do not place in streets or bike lanes.

  • Position bins with lid opening facing the street and wheels against the curb.

  • Leave 3ft of space between bins and any obstacles like mailboxes or parked cars.

  • Remove bins from curbside by the next day after collection. Storing bins improperly can lead to citations.

Missed Collections

If your trash or recycling is not collected on your scheduled day:

  • Double check that bins were properly placed curbside by 7am on the scheduled day.

  • Contact TDS at 512-282-3508 to report a missed collection by the next business day.

  • If you contact after the next business day, your report will be logged for future improvement but collection will not return that week.
