About Us

The Solid Waste Collection and Solid Waste Disposal Departments are responsible for the collection and disposal of the City’s trash or garbage. The City’s landfill is the disposal site for all non-hazardous solid waste collected in Amarillo, disposing it through burial. The City utilizes a fully automated, containerized collection system. Only one person is needed for each truck and route where other cities typically require two or three workers per truck to collect garbage left at curbside. The department focuses on several aspects throughout the city including:

 

A better appearance of the City neighborhoods is maintained by the elimination of unsightly piles of trash, torn garbage bags, and lines of trash cans.
