|Large Item Collection is a service available to all residents within the city limits of Victoria. Large items are collected by a knuckle boom truck and are taken to the City of Victoria landfill.
|Important City Code Information for Large Item Collection
|Large items may NOT be placed at the curb for longer than 48 hours before the trucks are in your scheduled service area. If items are left at the curb for longer than 48 hours, your items will be tagged and your address turned over to Code Enforcement who will then open a case for your address.
To avoid this, we stress to all residence to contact the Solid Waste Division before placing any large items or tree limbs at the curb for collection.
NOTE: When placing large items out, they must be placed at the curb and NOT in the street.
|Basics of Large Item Collection

Additional charge of $1.50 a minute may apply if the pile is over 6 cubic yards.
Residents may have more than two large item collections a year at the rate of $20 service fee plus $1.50 per minute per additional collection.
Appointments may be made by calling the Solid Waste office at 361-485-3220.
Large item collections are done Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday.
Note: Vacant lots or unoccupied residential homes that are not currently billed for services are not eligible for large item collections.
