You can also take garbage and other items to the Royal Oaks Landfill on Heath Lane. The landfill is a private company, and their prices are not handled by the City. For prices and questions about the landfill, you can call their office at (903) 586-1449.


City Cleanup Days


The City also offers a free cleanup day, annually, where you can bring your items to be thrown away. On the cleanup day, the City has four locations where you can drop off your items, or you can take them to the Landfill. At the landfill, you need to provide proper ID (like a driver’s license) and a current water bill in order to get a special deal on disposing those days. Check the City calendar for the next upcoming cleanup day.
