Containerized Waste Program-Coming Soon


The City of Ennis is happy to announce the upcoming rollout of the new Containerized Solid Waste Program

During the month of October 2021 the City of Ennis will deliver one free, Ennis branded, 96-gallon (holds 6-8 bags) solid waste container to every residential customer. Solid waste collection will continue two times per week. Collection days and fees WILL NOT change.


October 11th-October 23rd-New containers will be delivered

October 18th-New containers will begin being serviced (if you received your new container prior to the 18th please continue using old containers until the 18th)

October 18th-29th-Old containers can be placed on the curb upside down if you would like the City of Ennis to collect them

October 22nd-If form was submitted to receive an additional container they will start being delivered after this date


  1. Containerized waste collection is more effective and safer for our workers and citizens
  2. Creates cleaner neighborhoods by preventing loose trash and vermin
  3. Provides an opportunity to implement curbside recycling in the future


  • Place the containers within (3) three feet of the curb, with wheels facing your home
  • Please bag all waste and place it in the container with the lid closed
  • Don't place anything in front of the container including vehicles
  • Don't place the container within 3 ft of objects including mailbox, fence or trees
  • Place containers for pickup by 6:45 am the day of service and no earlier than 7:00 pm the day before

If containers are not placed on the curb correctly or if there are bags or loose trash outside of the container a $10 fee will be automatically applied to the next bill.


  • Each residential customer will receive one 96-gallon container FREE
  • Additional containers are available for $5 per month-fill out the form located here and email to (additional containers will begin being delivered after October 22nd)
  • Containers are the property of the City of Ennis
  • Containers stay with the address they are delivered to
  • If you move, leave the container
  • Only City of Ennis containers will be serviced
  • Call 972-875-1234 ext 2248 to schedule a special collection for any items that do not fit in the container
