Burning of "Domestic Waste", which includes grass clippings, leaves, and branches is not allowed under Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) regulations if collection for such waste is available.

The Compost site located at 1630 N. Spring Street is open Wednesdays and Saturdays from 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. for disposing of domestic waste.  Residents must provide a copy of their utility bill and a photo identification card with matching addresses.

Waste Connections also offers a domestic waste pickup, which includes up to eight (8) bags of leaves and grass clippings each month.  Limbs and branches must be bundled in 4-foot lengths and not to exceed 35 pounds.  Click here for more information on waste collection.

Burn permits are not required for warming fires, otherwise known as campfires or recreation fires, for cooking and other non-debris (ceremonial) activities except under extreme fire danger.
