(March 20, 2020) Beginning Monday, March 23, collection of bulk and yard waste will temporarily stop until further notice. Waste Connections, the City of Frisco’s contractor, is temporarily ceasing all ‘hand-touch’ inorganic collections as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. We apologize for this service interruption and offer the following disposal alternatives:
Bulk: The North Texas Municipal Water District (NTMWD) offers three transfer station options and a landfill.
- Plano Parkway Transfer Station, 4030 W. Plano Parkway, Plano
- Custer Road Transfer Station, 9901 Custer Road, Plano
- Lookout Drive Transfer Station, 1601 East Lookout Drive, Richardson
- 121 Regional Disposal Facility, 3820 Sam Rayburn Highway, Melissa
Frisco residents may avoid anticipated long lines by using the Plano Parkway Transfer Station for bulk waste.
Bagged Yard Waste: Bagged yard waste, consisting of grass clipping and leaves, must be taken to the Custer Road Transfer Station. At this time, bundled limbs and branches will continue to be collected curbside. For bundling guidelines, go to FriscoTexas.gov/YardWaste
Frisco residents may drop off bulk waste twice a month and bagged yard waste twice a month for free with their Frisco water bill and matching driver’s license.
Composting: Leaving grass clippings on your lawn or cold composting at home will limit your need to travel to a transfer station during this temporary interruption of service. Here are some tips for leaving clippings on your yard:
- Set your mower blades at 2”, cut grass at or before 3”.
- Remove the bag from your mower (if your mower has this feature).
- Sprinkle grass clippings on your lawn or start a passive, compost pile
A passive compost pile can be created by doing the following:
- Create a barrier of either chicken wire or spaced out lumber, do not cover the top.
- Add leaves, branches, and lawn clippings. (Adding food scraps requires more work; so, for starters, try yard waste.)
