The McAllen City Public Works Recycling Center has extended its hours to continue maintaining our environment in the best conditions.

Due to the effects of the winter storm that occurred a few weeks ago in the city and the inconvenience it caused, thousands of families were affected and have cleaned up the gardens that, due to the intense cold, plants, palm trees and trees died, causing garbage to accumulate in homes.

As of April 5, 2021, all McAllen residents will be able to take all weeds and any type of recyclable waste to the Recycling Center or leave them on the sidewalk for the Public Works team to pass through.

The authorities are working intensely so that the garbage of discarded remains is no longer visible in all the streets, they ask residents to have patience and the cooperation of all, leaving the rubble next to the garbage cans or on the sidewalk, never leaving them in the street and also not near the drainage inlets.

You can also receive old furniture, sofas, mattresses, rugs, large toys, children’s pools, wood, appliances such as stoves, refrigerators or ovens, they can be taken to the Recycling Center deposit and in this way not to generate more garbage accumulating debris.
