Update:  As of 10/22/2018, Burnet County has begun to pick up debris from residences that have placed and sorted items close to the roadside or curb.  They will be making several passes through affected areas, so as of now there is no deadline to have debris out.

     As a general guide, please separate debris into 3 basic piles:  1.  Branches/Vegetation that can go into a wood chipper, 2.  Metal and Appliances (Please remove food items from refrigerators and freezers and secure the doors with tape/bungee cords/rope), 3.  Clothing/Furniture/Lumber/Siding/Glass (Construction/Household Debris)

     Please place the debris as close to the road without placing it on the road.  If you need assistance with debris removal or help moving the debris please contact the First Baptist Church Marble Falls here at their website or call them at 830-693-4381.  If you have difficulty contacting them or if you have additional questions, please call Burnet County Development Services at 512-715-5260.

     At this time DO NOT include containers of Chemicals/Pesticides/Paint/Gasoline.  You may burn untreated lumber/ limbs/ trees and other plant debris provided you do not create a nuisance condition or traffic hazard.  **Notify the Sheriff's Office at 512-756-8080 before burning**

     Metal Appliances can be taken to Hill Country Recycling located at  2000 2nd Street
