Bulk collections and curbside service for bagged yard waste is temporarily suspended. Read more in this press release.

In response to the paused curbside collection of the yard waste bags, the City of Frisco is offering resident drop-off of yard waste materials at Environmental Collection Center (6616 Walnut Street) through an emergency permit from the TCEQ. Frisco residents will be able to utilize this self-service drop off for yard waste in compliance with regular service, during Environmental Collection Center operating hours.  Read more on yard waste drop-off at Environmental Collection Center.

  • Tree limbs < 3 feet in length and yard bags with grass clippings and leaves up to 10 bags/ bundles, large tree trimming projects will be asked to go to 9901 Custer Road Transfer Station.
  • Due to the permit requirements, once the containers on site are full, we will have to end collection until they are emptied. No yard waste will be allowed to be placed on the ground.
  • Trash, dirt, mulch, compost, soil, or rocks cannot be accepted.
  • During operating hours: Monday through Friday 8 a.m. - 4 p.m., and Saturdays 8 a.m. – 1 p.m. only.
  • Frisco residents only (current water bill and matching ID required) - show through window, do not hand to attendant.
  • This drop off will not count against your two free yard waste drop-offs at the Custer Transfer Station.

As a reminder, curbside yard waste collection has been paused due to the CDC’s recommendations in order to best protect our staff and drivers.
