Yard waste is collected on designated trash days. All yard waste is composted. Grass clippings and other organic lawn materials are banned from the landfill. Through the composting program with North Texas Municipal Water District (NTMWD), the City receives a small amount of compost (approximately 150 cubic feet) free of charge. This compost is available at no cost to non-profit organizations in Allen working on beautification programs. Email the Waste Services Division for more information.
