Mesquite Trash & Recycling App discontinued on May 7, 2019

On May 7, the City of Mesquite will discontinue offering the Solid Waste & Recycling mobile app, weekly collection reminders and Waste Wizard tools to solid waste customers.

These online and mobile services were started a few years ago and have not been used by the majority of the customer base as originally planned. The funds used to maintain the contract with the outside vendor who operates this service will be used towards improving other areas of the solid waste operations. For questions, call 972-216-6285.
