Residential Trash Service


Residential trash is provided by Waste Connections.

 Curbside trash is a once-a-week pick-up. This service is fully automated (the driver does not leave the truck). Trash goes into the 95-gallon black collection cart, the base trash rate is one trash cart per single-family residence. To help prevent litter, please bag your trash.

For any questions or concerns regarding your trash pick-up please contact Frisco Environmental Services at 972-292-5900.

Please follow these guidelines for trash pick-up in Frisco:

  • Find your recycle and trash day.
  • Roll out for collection by 7 a.m.
  • Place carts so handles face towards the house and lid opens away from the street.
  • Carts should be spaced at least three feet apart and away from other obstacles.
  • All trash must be inside the cart with the lid fully closed.
  • Secure all trash items in plastic bags.
  • Items outside the cart will not be collected, overloading the cart will result in non collection
