In FY 2017-18 the Solid Waste Department was awarded two grants from the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) through the Alamo Area Council of Governments (AACOG) to purchase a vertical baler and a 40-cubic yard compactor. The compactor will be utilized in the City Recycle Center for the collection of single stream recycling. Currently the single stream material is being collected utilizing a 20-cubic yard rear load collection vehicle.
