Beginning February 1, 2020, Azle residents/business owners will see an increase in their garbage/recycle rates. Residential rates will increase by $1.20 to $18.45, which includes the cost for the X-Treme Green Event. Commercial handload will increase by $2.24 to $27.62. The City’s contract with CWD allows for an annual market adjustment each February 1st based on the percent of increase in the annual Consumer Price Index (CPI) for all DFW Urban Consumers as published by the U.S. Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics. However, the bulk of the increase is due to CWD having to use a new landfill for disposal of Azle’s waste as the current one they use closed December 31.
Azle residents benefit from a variety of waste disposal options - twice a week solid waste, once a week recycle (65 gal cart or 18 gal bin), once a week bulk item collection, once a month bulk brush, and a twice a year "X-treme Green Event" that is held as part of the city-wide clean up. Azle residents have the option to choose either a 65 gallon blue cart or an 18 gallon bin for their recycle needs. If you would like to switch to a 65 gallon cart, please complete the form and return to Customer Service.
The X-treme Green Event gives Azle residents a convenient way to dispose of their household hazardous waste, e-waste, metal appliances, tires, and on-site document shredding. The 2020 X-treme Green Events are scheduled for May 16 and September 19.
Free recycled paint for Azle residents
In an effort to continue our recycling efforts, the City and CWD created a remix paint program by blending the usable paint collected at Azle’s X-Treme Green Events and offering the recycled paint (latex & oil-based) FREE to Azle residents. Paint is available in one (1) gallon containers and comes in various shades of beige. Paint is available at Azle City Hall, 505 W. Main Street.
The City of Azle does not guarantee the purity, quality, consistency, etc of the paint distributed.
The City of Azle and CWD are committed to helping our residents keep the community clean and preserving the environment for future generations. For questions or concerns regarding your solid waste collection, please contact Community Waste Disposal at 817-795-9300.
