Pflugerville City Council approves first trash rate increase in four years
On Tuesday, February 25, City Council approved a $3.04 increase in the monthly trash rate, the City’s first increase since 2016. This rate increase also includes a $0.71 increase for an extra trash cart and a $1.43 increase for an extra recycle cart, available to customers upon request. Trash and recycle pickup in Pflugerville remains below area cities in Central Texas for similar services.
The new rates will go in effect on March 1, with In-City trash customers paying $18.94 per month and Out-of-City trash customers paying $20.94 per month for trash service. Optional services of additional trash and recycling carts will increase to $6.83 and $3.98, respectively.
The rate change maintains current services for customers with trash pickup once a week and recycling pickup every other week.
