Specialty Recycling and HHW Disposal Opportunities

Clean and Green

POSTPONED: Spring 2019
Clean and Green Event

Due to severe weather conditions expected tomorrow, we are postponing our Spring Clean & Green Event until June 15, 2019.  Since we are working with other vendors and collecting Household Harmful Waste (HHW), we must notify Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) of the date and time of the new event. TCEQ requires a written request 45 days prior to issuing another TCEQ permit for this type of event. 

We look forward to seeing you on June 15!


The Town of Little Elm offers two events per year for residents to purge their homes of all hazardous waste, tires for recycling, electronic waste recycling, metal recycling, and document shredding recycling. These events are held in the spring and fall each year at the Public Works Service Center. You will need to bring a current water bill and photo identification to enter the drop site.

In order to service the growing number of residents with larger or more difficult items to be disposed of,  the following items will not be collected until AFTER the event at our Courtesy Drop Site. The Courtesy Drop Site will open at Noon p.m. promptly right after the event. These items include metal recycling, tree shredding for mulch, and bulk and brush drop-off.
