Due to strong sustained winds related to Tropical Storm Beta, the City of Victoria on Monday will close its facilities for a 24-hour period and cancel all garbage and recycling services.  

“The safety of our community and staff is of the utmost importance,” City Manager Jesús A. Garza said. “As always, we will continue to work with state and local officials and our Office of Emergency Management to monitor the weather, prepare for imminent and potential threats to our community, and make decisions accordingly.” 

The City’s temporary facility closure is effective starting at 7 a.m., Sept. 21 through 7 a.m., Sept. 22. Police and Fire first responders will continue normal operations with safety protocols based on weather conditions.  

The suspension of all garbage and recycling services includes residential trash collection, yard waste, recycling and bulk pickup. Residents should not put any carts or bulk trash out for collection. The landfill and compost facilities also will be closed during this 24-hour period. For Monday routes, the rescheduled pickup is anticipated to be on Wednesday.
