Holly Lake Ranch, Texas

Brush/Recycle Sites

Brush Collection

Second Saturday of each month 8:30am - Noon

Even if it rains the site will be open. When raining the site has held up very well

without anyone ever being stuck.

Holly Lake Ranch Brush Collection Burn Site

Volunteers who are also residents of Holly Lake Ranch operate the brush collection site. The site is for the collection of brush, leaves and tree limbs removed from the property of Holly Lake Ranch property owners. The site can receive only these materials. The reason is the State of Texas Air Quality management office regulates the site. A permit has to be obtained by Holly Lake Ranch Staff in order to burn the brush once it is collected. An official from the state's air Quality office inspects the site prior to the requested burn. If any material other than brush, leaves or tree limbs is found the permit is not issued and the site cannot burn the materials. The volunteers on duty really appreciate your cooperation.

The site is located on the county road that runs next to the airport.  Turn off of 2869 onto this road, travel past the airport and watch for the gate opening to the site on the left hand side of the road.

Where can I take my materials other than brush,

i.e. pressure treated lumber, etc...?

You can place pressure treated wood, steel, aluminum, iron and other metal items

in your waste container which is picked up weekly in front of your home.
