Recycling Program

In an ongoing effort to reduce the amount of solid waste being disposed in area landfills, the City of Brownsville has developed and implemented a recycling program for newspapers, aluminum cans, and plastic bottles. Recycling bags may be picked up at City Hall during regular business hours. Filled recycling bags should be placed at the curbside for pick up on regular trash days.

If you have any questions concerning street maintenance, solid waste management, or recycling, please contact the Public Works Department at (731) 772-6693.
