City of Jacksonville Relocating Recycling Dumpster to Royal Oaks Landfill

by Andrew C. Lugo Communications Director City of Jacksonville

The City of Jacksonville is removing the recycling dumpster from the Bolton Street location, and relocating to Royal Oaks Landfill at 440 Heath Lane, Jacksonville TX 75766.

The reason for this change is abuse of the unattended recycling dumpster.

The City does see the merit and benefits to the recycling program, however the current unattended system has led to abuse and is not functioning satisfactorily. Many people are placing items into the dumpster which are not recyclable including significant quantities of trash.

The City apologizes for any inconvenience and, continues to partner with Republic Services to provide recycling services at the Royal Oaks Landfill. The City will be announcing a voluntary curbside recycling program by the end of Summer 2019.
