Trash & Recycling

Trash & Recycling Program
Residents are provided with 96-gallon trash and recycling carts.  Carts are also provided to businesses that receive regular trash service (not dumpsters).

Trash is picked up once per week.  Recycling is picked up every other week.  Carts must be placed curbside by 8:00 AM on pickup days with the wheels against the curb; if there is no curb, please place the wheels on the edge of the pavement.

Carts should be placed at least four feet away from each other to allow access for servicing.  Click here to download the Recycling Guide.  Please visit the Frequently Asked Questions to answer further questions about our service.  If you are having trouble determining your trash day, please click the updated map.  

If you believe your trash or recycling was missed, please contact the Public Works office directly at 361-777-4601.  The Public Works office will coordinate it being serviced on the next available day; please note, Friday through Sunday are not service days in Portland.

Bulk Trash & Brush Collection
If you have tree limbs or other bulky trash to be picked up, refer to the Bulk Pickup dates in the tables below for information on pickup dates.

Each residential street is serviced once per month.  It is important that you properly place items for curbside pickup.  Items placed under trees or other obstructions, such that the boom on the truck cannot safely retrieve them, the items will be bypassed.  Items must be on the curb by 7am on Monday of your designated week.  If you wait to put out items until later in your designated week, the brush truck may have already driven by your house.  Because of the tight schedule, trucks are not able to retrace a route to pick-up items that were not on the curb when servicing occurred resulting in items being left until the next month.

For detailed information of placement and items able to be disposed of, please click here.  To view a general bulk trash map, please click this link.
