Have you heard about FREE Bulky Pickup?

Frontier Waste Solutions offers City of Gonzales Residents one free bulky pickup a year!

How does it work?

When the resident has extra bulk waste, even something larger like a kitchen appliance or mattress, that they need to get rid of they call City of Gonzales at 1-830-672-2815. They will let the customer know the day of pickup, usually within the customer's next two normally scheduled trash pick up days. Then the customer can put up to 5 cubic yards of trash on their curb (a washer and dryer, side by side, is about 3 cubic yards). That's 5 cubic yards of trash that you won't have to haul off!
