Garbage Service

The City of Eagle Lake contracts the garbage service to:

WCA (Waste Corporation of America)  Phone 

On October 1, 2018, the City of Eagle Lake changed Solid Waste (garbage) providers. The new Company is WCA. There are some changes with the Residential Trash Service. Each household should have received 2 — new blue poly carts. You can put household trash, limbs, grass, debris into either cart. Your pickup day has not changed from what it was with TDS.

If you have bulky items such as a dresser, chair, etc. that will not fit in a cart you can put these items out by your blue carts so WCA can pick those items up with a grapple truck. That is a truck with an arm that an operator can grab and pick up the bulky items. You can pile your limbs on a pile beside the street not under a tree or power line, so the grapple truck can pick them up safely.

Also, place the carts facing the street so the truck can use its automatic arm to clamp around the cart and dump it into the truck, leaving some space between the carts allows for the operation to move along faster.

The City is currently working with WCA on a Recycling Drop-off location.

If you have questions or concerns, please give us a call at City Hall 979-234-2640 and we will get you the answers.

Emergency/After Hours: 

If you have an emergency after hours, please call the Sheriff Department at (979) 732-2388, and the appropriate Public Works personnel will be contacted.
