The items to be included in this special collection are general household discards from city residences only. Because of escalating cost, landfill restrictions and the use of packer trucks for collection, the following regulations and prohibited items will be strictly enforced for this collection. Each residence will be limited to a maximum of 60 cubic feet of discards, this is equal to the amount that can be put at one time into the hopper of the collection truck.

Please note the following items are prohibited and will not be collected: mattresses, appliances, refrigerators, stoves, water heaters, stools, sinks, tires, batteries, tree limbs and brush, leaves, yard waste, railroad ties, building materials that are not boxed or bundled, concrete, brick and stone debris, metal fencing, motor blocks, transmissions and auto body parts, pressure containers, liquid waste and hazardous materials including paint and motor oils. Paint cans must be empty and/or paint dried out. Special tags are available for separate disposal of these items. Tags can be purchased at the Celina utilities Office any time.

  • Saturday, April 1; the regular Monday route

In order to participate in this collection, your trash must be placed adjacent the street by 6:30 a.m. the day your area is scheduled for pickup. There will be no callbacks or extension of pickup dates.
