Household Hazardous Waste and Electronics Recycling Collection Event


The City of Sherman will once again be hosting a Household Hazardous Waste and Electronics Recycling event on Saturday, May 6, 2017.  The event will be held at City Hall (old post office) from 9:00 am until 11:00 am (or until the trailer is full).  This event is free to Sherman residents and you must show a recent water bill to prove residency.  Review our Household Hazardous Waste and Electronics Recycling Flyer to see what will be accepted at this event.  If you still have questions, call Solid Waste & Recycling at 903-892-7261.

Cart Instructions


All Sherman households are provided a 100-gallon roll-out container in which to place recyclables. Sherman’s curbside recycling program is an automated, commingled process. That means no sorting is necessary of the recyclable materials. Place all accepted materials in the teal-colored or blue roll-out container provided by the City of Sherman. Ensure that paper materials are clean and dry. Lightly rinse containers and remove lids before placing containers and lids in the recycling cart.

Service


The carts will be serviced every other week by an automated truck that lifts the cart with a hydraulic arm. Place your cart at your regular collection point, on your designated day, by 7:00 am. Place the cart at least two feet from fences, refuse containers or any other object that may impede the mechanical arm of the truck. Recyclables will be collected every other week on the customer’s regular trash day.
