Environmental Services

Our Mission 

Our mission is to be dedicated, environmentally responsible stewards of our community and the earth. Our goal is to sustain and improve the quality of life of all who call Frisco their home and to safeguard our natural resources for present and future generations. We are responsible for residential recycling and trash services, commercial building waste and recycling services, environmental education and outreach, and household hazardous waste safe disposal.

Winter Weather Delays

Waste Connections will not collect trash or recycling Tuesday, January 31, or Wednesday, February 1, due to icy alleys and neighborhood streets. A small percentage of Monday's routes were also not collected.  Thursday, February 2 - Saturday, February 3 are TRASH ONLY collections. Please have your carts out and ready for service.

Recycling, yard waste, and bulk collections will all be pushed to regularly-scheduled collection days next week starting on Monday, February 6. Here are other options for disposal/recycling:

  • Bring your recycling to the Environmental Collection Center on Thursday, Feb. 2 and Friday, Feb. 3 for free drop off.
  • Saturday, February 4th, residents with Frisco water bills can attend Chunk Your Junk from 8am-1pm in order to properly dispose of trash, recycling, yard waste, and household chemicals and electronics.
  • The Custer Road Transfer Station (Trash and Yard Waste) and Plano Parkway Transfer Station, as well as the Melissa landfill, are open from 8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. for DIY trash disposal with Frisco water bill and matching drivers license.
