The Williamson County Landfill and Hutto Recycling Center are owned by Williamson County and operated by Waste Management.
The Williamson County Landfill is a municipal solid waste landfill operating under the strict regulations of the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). It was permitted by the TCEQ in December 1981. The county has contracted with Waste Management of Texas (Waste Management) since the mid-1980s to operate the facility.
The landfill is permitted to accept non-hazardous household, commercial and special waste, as well as construction and demolition debris. The landfill does not accept regulated hazardous or radioactive waste.
The facility consists of 202 permitted acres of land and currently accepts, on average, 600 tons of municipal solid waste a day. The vast majority of waste is generated from Williamson County residents and businesses.
Effective June 1, 2009, Waste Management took over operations of the Hutto Recycling Center. The Recycling Center accepts, at no charge, used oil, paint, scrap metal, cardboard, newspaper and magazines, aluminum cans, plastic, batteries, light bulbs, cell phones for the Crisis Center, and electronic waste such as computers and monitors.
