Why do trash / recycle collection guidelines change?

McKinney contracts with Waste Connections for trash / recycle pick-up services and with with the North Texas Municipal Water District (NTMWD) for landfill access. Those contractors periodically change their guidelines to remain in compliance with State and Federal laws. When that happens, the City of McKinney must adjust its collection guidelines to ensure continued service.

The NTMWD provides solid waste services to its member and customer cities. For more information, please visit NTMWD.com.
