Commercial Waste & Recycling

Material Management Program

The City of Fort Worth does not provide commercial recycling or waste hauling services.

Businesses, churches, schools, and multi-family housing complexes may contact the City’s Material Management Team or call the help line at 817-392-1234 for assistance starting or improving a recycling or waste reduction program.

The Material Management Team can work with you directly to help reduce and responsibly manage waste. They are available to perform waste assessments, help train staff, develop a personalized waste diversion plan, assist with external marketing and internal promotion, and can even provide deskside recycling bins for qualifying facilities, as available.

All commercial and institutional facilities of Fort Worth are eligible to enroll in the Material Management tracking and recognition program. Facilities with advanced sustainability practices are encourage to apply for additional levels of recognition through Business Smart and the annual Environmental Excellence Awards.

Fort Worth schools can also take advantage of the School Green Teams program offered in partnership with Keep Fort Worth Beautiful.
