Euless was the first Tarrant County city to implement recycling in apartments. In that same year, Euless began the blue bag recycling program. Since then, Euless has worked hard to increase recycling participation, while maintaining a low recycling rate. Now, Euless again has created an innovative recycling program that will make recycling more convenient for our residents and reduce waste. We believe this to be the first hybrid recycling program in all of Texas.
For service beginning March 1, 2013, you can choose the method of recycling that works best for you. You may choose to continue participating in the blue bag recycling program. You may also request either an 18-gallon recycling bin or a 65-gallon recycling cart that will be delivered to your home.
You may choose to recycle in a blue bag, bin or cart. It is simply a matter of what method works best for your household.
If you choose to keep your rate as one of the lowest in the region, you may continue using CWD’s award-winning “Wash It ‘N Toss It” blue bags and utilize the lowest rate option
Blue bags are available for purchase at these Euless stores: Albertsons, Kroger, and Home Depot.
If you choose to use a bin or cart, it will be delivered to your curb upon request.
Euless residents age 65 and older may apply for the senior citizen recycling rate. Please call the Water Utilities office to receive this rate.
CWD provides residential single-family once a week curbside pickup service and multi-family recycling. Euless residents who live in multi-family complexes that participate in the recycling program can recycle materials in a the booted container that is located on their property. Residents receive initial service/billing information from the Water Office.
Recycling is now single stream and does not have to be separated. All recyclable materials may be placed in one container.

Other Recycling Services
The Earth911 Recycling Directory offers a way to search for a local recycling solution for items not accepted through the curb side program.
CWD also provides Euless with recycling services at all apartment complexes throughout the city. Euless residents who live in apartments are offered the opportunity to recycle the same materials accepted in the curbside program.
If your apartment property is participating in the program, there will be at least two containers: a slotted container for paper items and a booted container for other materials, on the property.
When the container is full, property management contacts Community Waste Disposal to empty the containers.
