City of Garland Code of Ordinances Chapter 52 Article II Sec. 52.27 states that no person may engage in the collection of solid waste, landscape waste, bulky waste, or recycle materials within the City without first entering into a franchise agreement with the City for that purpose.
Haulers must obtain an annual permit from the City. To become a permitted hauler, businesses must apply for the permit with the City of Garland Environmental Waste Services Dept.
To obtain a permit, haulers must pay a fee of 5 percent of the revenue earned for collecting, transporting and disposing of debris originating in Garland quarterly. Each quarterly payment shall be accompanied by a financial accounting report. The fee must be paid within 30 days of the conclusion of each quarter to keep the permit active.
The franchise agreement lasts for one year and automatically renews on the anniversary date of the original agreement.
To become a permitted hauler, email the City of Garland Environmental Waste Services Commercial Division today.
