San Antonio holding Free Landfill Day on Saturday

February 8, 2019 GMT

San Antonians needing to haul a load to the landfill should plan on doing it Saturday.

The city’s Solid Waste Management Department is holding Free Landfill Day at nine locations. Residents can get rid of old furniture, appliances, mattresses, tires and other bulky items from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. All they’ll need is a picture ID and a copy of a recent CPS Energy bill showing the solid waste service fee.

Landfills won’t accept hazardous waste, building materials or commercial or industrial trash.

The nine sites are: the Bitters Brush Recycling and Bulky Waste Collection site, 1800 Wurzbach; Culebra Road Bulky Waste and HHW Collection Center, 7030 Culebra; Frio City Road Bulky Waste Collection Center, 1531 Frio City; Nelson Gardens Brush Recycling Center, 8963 Nelson; Republic Services Landfill, 7000 Interstate 10 East; Rigsby Avenue Bulky Waste Collection Center, 2755 Rigsby; Southside Brush & Bulky Waste Collection Center, 5450 Castroville; TDS Transfer Station, 11601 Starcrest; and Waste Management Landfill, 8611 Covel.

Some of the sites limit what they accept. For more information on what is accepted at each site, go to www.sanantonio.gov/swmd/events.
