Bulky items such as furniture and appliances are not collected by your weekly garbage truck. These items are collected by a special truck and team. If you need to dispose of these items, please call and leave a message at our office. A customer service representative will contact you regarding appointment availability, restrictions, fee information, and to schedule your pick up. Furniture can also be brought to the next quarterly Bulky Goods Drop-Off

Have bulky items the city won’t pick up? You need a junk removal service.

If you have large items that the city won’t take from you, you may need to hire a junk removal service.

Junk removal services are not be as picky about the items they’re collecting so if the city won’t take the item, this may be your best bet. There’s usually a fee involved with junk removal but most companies can tell you ahead of time approximately what it’s going to cost.

There are a number of junk removal services in New Braunfels and I’m sure many of them will be able to help you out.
