Resource Recovery is a division of the Neighborhood Enhancement Department. Its mission is to manage waste disposal services in San Marcos by providing an integrated solid waste system responsive to the City’s vision and growth by adding programs to help increase landfill diversion. It includes the Keep San Marcos Beautiful Program to educate and engage San Marcos citizens to take responsibility for improving our community environment through litter prevention, beautification, waste reduction, and sustainability.
Garbage service for multifamily properties is managed by permitted private contractors provided by the property manager. The City contracts with Texas Disposal Systems (TDS) for on-site recycling service. Multifamily residents may also use the Green Guy Recycling Drop-Off Center.
