Brush Disposal


Also located at this site is the Brush Disposal Site. This facility is available only to Residents of Horseshoe Bay and to Permitted Commercial Customers that are hauling brush from within the corporate boundaries of the City of Horseshoe Bay (State Law: TCEQ Chapter 111, Sub-chapter B:  Outdoor Burning).  Commercial Customers must obtain an annual permit from the City Utility Office, located at 1 Community Drive. Operating hours for this facility are the same as the Recycle Center, however it may be closed due to wet weather conditions.

Effective October 17, 2016 the City will be changing operations at the Brush Disposal Site. A Brush Site Monitor will be at the site to measure volumes for payment and ensure location of the materials originated from a Horseshoe Bay address. The Monitor will also ensure all dumping will be in accordance with rules of site disposal. 

The Brush Site Hours of operations:
Commercial disposal only:  
Monday, Wednesday and Friday - 8:00AM to 12:00PM and 1:00PM to 4:00PM
Closed on all scheduled City Holidays and during annual brush grinding.

City Residential Garbage Customers who only self-dispose of brush (not dispose of with contractor) may utilize the brush site during regular hours of operation.  Each resident may dispose of up to 100 cubic yards, about 25 pickup loads, after which standard commercial rates will be charged. 

All potential users must first check with the Recycle Center Monitor and show valid proof of their eligibility to use the site:
  • A Horseshoe Bay Resident must provide a copy of a recent City garbage bill (along with driver's license or other valid I.D.
  • Commercial Customers must show a copy of their annual permit and indicate the location within the Horseshoe Bay City limits where the brush originated.
