Do-it-yourself disposal fees for construction and demolition debris are being waived for Allen residential water account holders as storm cleanup continues.

Residents with a current City of Allen residential utility account may dispose of materials at any North Texas Municipal Water District (NTMWD) Transfer Station or the 121 Regional Disposal Facility (3820 Sam Rayburn Highway, Melissa, TX 75454) at no charge for a limited time only. Typically, a weight-based charge for construction/demolition materials apply.

As a reminder, residents may not dispose of construction/demolition materials in their weekly trash or monthly bulk collection.


Feb. 27 to Mar. 31, 2021. Facilities operate Monday-Saturday, 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.


  • Custer Road Transfer Station (9901 Custer Road, Plano, TX, 75025)
  • Lookout Transfer Station (1601 E Lookout Drive, Richardson, TX, 75081)
  • Parkway Transfer Station (4030 W. Plano Parkway, Plano, TX 75093)
  • 121 Regional Disposal Facility (3820 Sam Rayburn Highway, Melissa, TX 75454)

Must present a current City of Allen residential utility bill and a driver’s license which matches the address on the utility account.

The kind of materials expected for disposal from freeze damage include sheet rock, insulation, molding, carpet, carpet pads, and torn out wood flooring materials. Carpets and carpet pads should be cut into sections no larger than 8 ft. X 8 ft. Shingles are not accepted.

Loads delivered in a commercial or contractor vehicle/trailer (with business name visible on either the truck or the trailer) do NOT qualify for free disposal and will be charged the associated fee, even if driven or accompanied by a resident. Loads delivered in personal vehicles/pickup trucks, flat bed trucks or trailers towed behind personal vehicles are permitted. Flat-bed rental trucks are acceptable; however, rented stake bed trucks and box trucks are not acceptable (see below).
