"I have been fortunate enough to live in Parker County my entire life. My great great grandfather came here after the Civil War; he was here on the 1870 census. That makes me a fifth generation Parker County resident. Additionally, I have been fortunate enough to work in Parker County my entire career. I was a Parker County educator for 30 years, retiring in 2010. With my brother Jerry, I own businesses here - Walden Farm and Ranch Supply, Inc. - & I am beginning my second term as county commissioner." - Larry Walden

County Cleanup Day
Some people are asking about when county clean-up will be held. Clean-up was canceled by Commissioners Court on March 17th. There has been no action by the court to reschedule it as of this time. Other precincts have dumpsters at their precinct barns for citizens to bring trash in to unload themselves. Working with the leadership team at our precinct, we have made the decision to continue the procedures we have had in place since the beginning of this pandemic. Our precinct office and yard are closed to the public. All deliveries are left outside, we wear masks and/or social distance, we sanitize our facilities and wash our hands. Our employees are essential, we are doing everything we can to prevent the infection of one of our employees, which would require our operation to shut down for a minimal of 14 days. We take very seriously the fact that the virus could be spread to an employee’s family. We believe that these measures outweigh the need to have a clean-up day at this time. We look forward to having a place to take solid waste five days a week rather than one day a year. We are currently working on such a plan.
Please Separate Your Items For Cleanup. Please check with your Precinct that you will be visiting, we all have different procedures on how things need to be separated
WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR DAMAGE TO VEHICLES OR TRAILERS
- DUE TO LIMITED MANPOWER WE MAY NOT BE ABLE TO HELP YOU UNLOAD
County cleanup day is held once a year. Commissioner’s court determines a Saturday in the spring of every year in which the four county precinct barns will accept most items that normally cannot be disposed of through your waste services. Hours of operation are from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.
TCEQ PROHIBITS OUR ACCEPTANCE OF THE FOLLOWING ITEMS ON CLEANUP DAY:
We no longer accept any titled vehicle this includes all boats, RVs and trailers.
Burn barrels, Sealed barrels or 55 gallon drums of any kind
Gasoline, diesel, or any flammable or explosive products no chemicals or empty chemical containers
Household chemicals such as cleaners, fertilizers or insecticides
Any waste from a business or commercial contractor or non-resident of Parker County.
Medical or bio-hazard waste products.
Shingles or any roofing material
Wet paint of any kind
Any tires on rims
Please note that the items are not accepted due to safety reasons. Household trash will not be accepted. You should have a local waste disposal company for that service. Clean-up day is for local homeowners, not to be used by commercial businesses.
We now have free mulch from grinding roadside brush. You can load all you want.
