County Recycle Bins

The current county recycling program has proven to be ineffective, producing more waste and contamination issues than it solves, and does not address the recycling needs of our residents We are therefore discontinuing the program effective October 1, 2018.

Asphalt Road Projects

Public Works has temporarily suspended all major road projects due to the extraordinary rainfall. Collin County received more than 21 inches of rain since April 1st creating conditions demanding all of Public Works’ resources. Parts of the County road system have sustained significant storm related damage that must be addressed promptly. Public Works is committed to our mission of “Providing the citizens of Collin County the safest driving conditions possible” and will endeavor to complete repairs quickly. We request your patience as our crews progress through this effort and we encourage residents to report any conditions that compromise safety or create a dangerous situation. Citizens can call the Public Works office at 972-548-3700 or log a service request here on our website to report an issue. We apologize for the inconvenience and pledge that the County will resume road paving projects as soon as practical.

Our Mission
  • Provide the citizens of Collin County the safest driving conditions possible through proficient construction and maintenance of all county roads and bridges.
  • Maintain good public relations by providing information in a helpful and informative manner.
  • Uphold the policies approved by the Commissioners Court.
