Solid Waste

Background

Bexar County Solid Waste Division was created as an answer to the County’s illegal dumping problem. Beginning on August 1st, 2021, the mandatory trash pilot program requires residents of certain areas within Bexar County to obtain and keep an agreement with a solid waste hauler to provide service to their property. The belief is that if residents are already paying for trash service, they will be less likely to resort to illegal dumping to dispose of waste.

The solid waste program began as a pilot program in the Camelot II subdivision in 2015 and, after significant results were observed in Camelot II, the County expanded the program to four other subdivisions.
