Many Lockhart citizens follow, gather, and rely on communication from their City government through this website, and social media, specifically Facebook. However, earlier today, a global outage, as explained by the social media platform itself, has suspended access and updates to all Facebook and Instagram accounts, including the City of Lockhart's.
We'd like to remind our community that the City has other means to communicate updates and alerts, including other social media platforms: Twitter, and Nextdoor.
ALSO, the Warn Central Texas Notification System (warncentraltexas.org) is also available for FREE emergency/severe weather notifications via phone, text, and email from your local public safety agencies.
The City of Lockhart, in partnership with Central Texas Refuse, is helping you do some fall cleaning through its city-wide clean up Saturday, October 16, at 7 a.m. All loose materials must be in bags or in containers that cannot weigh more than 60 pounds. All trash must be out at the property line by 7 a.m. the day of the cleanup.
**For the safety of our streets, crew, and residents, please don't bring your bulky items out to your property line sooner than FIVE DAYS before the event.
In this event, bulky item pickup charges will not be applicable on certain eligible items, including:
Non-eligible items include:
BRUSH PICKUP: When discarding brush and other items, please make two separate piles: one for brush and another one for everything else. NO TRASH OR TREATED WOOD IN THE BRUSH PILE. Brush piles with bulk trash mixed in will be skipped and will be the resident’s responsibility to remove.
Brush piles must have 5 ft. of clearance on both sides and free from obstructions up to 15 ft. tall. Do not place brush piles within 5 ft. of mailboxes, poles, trees, parked cars, and the bulk trash pile. The brush pile may not exceed 4 ft. in length and 40 pounds in weight.
We also ask you not to put material out on the street, where it could pose a traffic hazard. Call Central Texas Refuse at (512)243-2833 for more information.
