I did a major cleanup of our yard last night and have 7 bags of leaves and branches and then dug up 5 bushes/shrubs that I need to know what to do with. Our trash pickup was yesterday (Tues) and I don't want to wait another week for them to pick it up. So is there anywhere that I can take this stuff to? Thanks

You may always use the Custer Road Transfer Station for additional trash/recycling disposal. Frisco residents are limited to two free drop-offs per month. ID required: a valid TX driver's license and copy of current Frisco Water Bill. Directions to the Station: From Preston Road turn east towards McKinney travel approx 4 miles, turn right on Custer, the Transfer Station is about 1/2 mile down on the rt hand side. Hours of operation Monday - Friday 8 a.m - 4 p.m. Saturday 8 a.m - 2 p.m.

Yard waste will be recycled at this facility providing it is clean and free of soil. Other household trash such as old fencing, unusuable furniture, etc. will be thrown away,

Give us a call at 972-335-5519 if we may be of further service.

Had a quick question relating to this. I was told that you can't put things such as branches or grass (yard trash) into the trash bins. Well you can, but the city will not pick up your garbage if they see stuff like that in it. Is this true?

We prefer that you recycle this material, but it is acceptable to include it in your trash bin. Dirt, concrete, etc. is not accecptable, and must be disposed of through the landfill in McKinney or recycled through an area recycler. Please visit Environmental Services or call 972-335-5519 for additional information.

Is it true that you can go to the transfer station and get free mulch?

The transfer station does not offer free mulch but we do at our Recycling Center located at 6726 Walnut Street - directions from Preston Road, travel west on Hwy 720 approximately 2 miles until you reach 2nd street turn right and follow the road until you see the center. The mulch bin is on the right hand side at the back of the facility. In addition to mulch we also have great compost - all of these products are self serve and on a first come first served basis. Bring your own container and help yourself. If you are interested in learning more about native plants and water conservation give us a call at 972-335-5519 or 972-335-5558 and we would be happy to send you a free CD. Thanks for your enquiry and happy gardening! Pippa Couvillion, Environmental Services Manager.

Our regularly scheduled trash pick up is on Monday. Due to the holiday, it was backed up to Tuesday this week. As of Wednesday evening, our re-cycleables have not been picked up. It appears that none of the houses on Cori Lane have had their's picked up either.

Now it is Friday after noon and we still have not had our recycleables picked up on Cori Lane. Can you tell me who to call?

Please call the Environmental Services Division for any missed pickups. They can be reached at 972-335-5519.

Thanks, and I apologize for any inconvenience.
