Curbside Pick-Up

Twice per year, during the months of April and October, Progressive Waste will conduct city-wide curbside collection of acceptable household hazardous waste material for Murphy residents. This service is only provided when residents contact Progressive to schedule a pick-up. Residents should contact Progressive Waste at 469-452-8000 for packaging instructions and additional details.

Household hazardous waste materials should be in a cardboard box or plastic bin, marked "HHW" with a permanent marker, and placed curbside by 7 a.m. on your scheduled service day. Each container should not exceed 50 pounds or 10 gallons of household chemical waste. All items to be picked up must be scheduled through Progressive Waste prior to collection date.
