We were the original recycling pickup company to partner with Texas Tech Student Housing and their amazing recycling center.  

Corona Update


We are in the process of turning off all automatic payments until TTU reopens.  We are also working on a plan to at least accept cardboard and will let everyone know if this works and  we will provide that service, if possible, at a big discount so stay tuned for that.  In the meantime, please do update your contact information per the letter we sent you recently.  You can do this by choosing a plan below and filling out the form there.  You will not need to enter payment information.  Thank you!!


Pick the plan that interests you and submit your information without signing up for payment.   When TTU resumes taking materials we will contact you!

The official list from the TTU Recycling Center is adjacent to this post.   Because we partner with TTU we take what is on there list.  

IMPORTANT: ALL items must be clean and dry and have no food residue on it.   So you may need to rinse some items.  

You can put it in a plastic bag unsorted accept  we ask you to flatten all cardboard boxes.  

On your pick up day, put the material on your curb.  Place the flat boxes down first then pin them down with bags so they do not blow away.

Is there a contract?  No, you sign up and cancel as you choose.  

Do materials really get recycled?  Yes, we trust TTU.  They care about the issue and I trust them completely.

What about electronics?  We can only cover what TTU can receive and at this time that does not include electronics.

Is there a limit on bags?  No, but we  do ask clients to limit the pickups to regularly consumed items.  We have many customers and our resources for pick up assume customers are not "spring cleaning."  If you need a special pick up that can be arranged.

When do materials get picked up?  We pick up on the first and third Saturdays.  If you choose the monthly pick up option, you will be assigned one of those two Saturdays based on your zip code.   In any case, there will be a text reminder sent the day before your pick up.  

Can my business sign up?  Yes.  There may be special pricing to work out.
