Excess Garbage & Bulky Items

Brush & Branches

Curbside Green Waste collection is for yard waste that can be placed into the kraft paper bags, weighs less than 40 pounds, or that has been bundled with twine or rope in lengths less than four feet, and weighing less than 40 pounds.

If your yard project includes a large amount or weight of brush or branches, you will need to schedule a special appointment for pick-up. There is fee for this service. Call us to schedule a pick-up and for fee information. (This service is temporarily suspended.)

Furniture & Appliances

Bulky items like furniture and appliances (without Freon) are not collected curbside, unless you have scheduled a pick-up for these items. There is a fee for bulky curbside collection. Call us to schedule a pick up and for fee information. (This service is temporarily suspended.)
Furniture can also be brought to the next quarterly Bulky Goods Drop-Off, but appliances are not accepted. Bring appliances without Freon to the City Recycle Center.

Excess Garbage Tags

Occasionally, you may have excess bagged garbage that will not fit in your garbage cart. In order for any garbage to be picked up, it must fit in your cart with the lid closed, or if outside the cart, it must have a City-issued excess garbage tag attached to the bag. You can purchase five tags for $10 at:
  • City Municipal Building - 424 S Castell Ave
  • New Braunfels Utilities - 263 Main Plaza
