These two new drop-off additions will join the other two drop-off sites, 208 Municipal Drive and 1631 84th Street, in offering City of Lubbock residents bulky item disposal and recycling opportunities.

Hours of operation for all sites are from Monday to Saturday, 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

Residents will be able to recycle the following items, as accepted in the City's recycling program: office paper, cardboard, pasteboard, newspaper, plastic PETE1, plastic HDPE2, tin, aluminum, and white good (used appliances).

The drop-off stations will include the recycling of 5 gallons or less of used oil, used antifreeze and used oil filters for Do-It-Yourselfers.

Residents using the drop-off section designated for the proper disposal of household bulky items, will be asked to present a driver's license with a City of Lubbock address. Per state law, access is exclusive to residents of the City of Lubbock hauling household items from their own single family residence.

A pick-up load or less of the following are the only items accepted: old furniture, old appliances, scrap metals, and small loads of yard waste.
