Solid Waste Management

Services Overview

Illegal Dumping:
Illegally dumped or illegally placed trash reduces the beauty and aesthetic of our public streets, parks, neighborhoods and waterways (www.dontmesswithtexas.org).  
Illegally dumped trash is more than an eyesore. Illegal dumpsites can be…

  • A Fire Hazard – Piles of dumped trash can present a fire hazard, especially in dry conditions.
  • A Health Hazard - Rats, flies and mosquitoes breed in litter; all of these are capable of spreading disease.
You can report illegal dumping by reporting what you see to the Edinburg Police Department. To report illegal dumping in your area you may also use The City of Edinburg's Request and Work Management Tool. 
The DSWM will continue its successful partnerships with community leadership organizations and Neighborhood Associations to organize special clean-up events, such as our yearly Trash Bash and Earth Day celebrations.
