Solid Waste Collection & Disposal

Monahans operates a solid waste collection and disposal system to provide proper collection, transportation and disposal of residential and commercial solid waste for the city in the most cost efficient methods possible.  The goal is to promote health and safety to the community by providing an environment free from hazards and unpleasantness of uncollected solid waste, with the least possible inconvenience to the citizens.

Green waste containers (dumpsters) are placed in each alley where they are shared by four households for household garbage and yard rubbish.  Businesses are given their own container.  The City is divided into two routes for garbage truck pickup.  The trucks should empty the dumpsters twice weekly except for holidays.  Depending on the route, pickups are made on Monday and Thursday or Tuesday and Friday with routes outside of the city limits being on Wednesday.

The City provides recycling bins that are designated for paper recycling.  We encourage our citizens to use the recycle bins for paper products such as newspapers, magazines and old phone books.  These bins are located at the City Service Center on 10th Street, behind City Hall, each school building and the school administration office has one along with the County buildings.
