Trash – There are several dumpsters located throughout the park. They are emptied once a week. Only regular household trash should be deposited; all trash must be securely tied in plastic bags. Please break down any boxes to save room (or recycle). Large bulk or items other than household trash can be taken to the transfer station at the Medina County Barn on the north side of Hondo at 275 CR 241, on Saturday mornings only, 8-12.
Periodically, park members (volunteers welcome) will announce a “dump run” and will pick up items for disposal. The cost varies and is split among members using the service.
Recycling – No recycling is available at the park. However, in Hondo (about 9 miles east), there is a free household recycling location in the Republic Services yard at 616 Spaatz, near the north side of the Hondo Airport (left turn at 1st Hondo signal light, 1 mi north, left on Spaatz). It’s open 8-12 on Saturday mornings only. It’s attended by a nice guy who will get the stuff from your vehicle and dump it all into a single big roll-off dumpster for later sorting in San Antonio. They take paper, cardboard, metal, plastic, and glass, no sorting necessary.
Non-household recycling such as batteries, tires, oil, electronics, appliances, or other large items should be taken to the transfer station at the Medina County Barn on the north side of Hondo at 275 CR 241, on Saturday mornings only, 8-12.
