The fees for Out-of-Cycle collection are as follows:

  • One item $50.00
  • Up to four (4) cubic yards $50.00
  • Each additional four (4) cubic yards (or any portion) $25.00 - **4 cubic yards are equivalent to 6ft (length) x 6ft(width) x 3ft(height)

Acceptable material is limited to brush and bulky items only. No household trash, construction materials bags or boxes are accepted for this service. There is no limit as long as the items fit in front of the house and are within 8 feet from the curb. Upon requesting the service, the Solid Waste Management Department will send a staff member to offer a free estimate on the cost involved with the collection and disposal of the materials through an out-of-cycle collection.

To request this city service, you may submit the form below or call 311 Customer Service at 3-1-1 or 210-207-6000. 311 is available seven days a week from 7am-7pm and 8am-5pm on holidays.

To pay by credit card over the phone, please call 3-1-1. Note: Payments made by phone are only accepted between 7:45am to 4:30pm, Monday through Friday. Once the fee is paid, the City will collect items within two working days. **All items need to be placed out at the curb first before Solid Waste can send a staff member out to give the estimate. SWMD will NOT go onto private property to give the estimate. A request can only be made if brush/bulky items are not currently being picked in the area.
