Architect / Engineering Service

Waste Connections of Texas is committed to working closely with architects, developers, and engineers to see that proper specifications and clearances are considered during the design and construction of commercial spaces and high rise buildings throughout the region.

High rise buildings designed to accommodate a large number of occupants have the ability to generate a great volume of waste. If proper planning does not take place in order to accommodate the size and maneuverability of collection vehicles, waste removal can become an expensive, time consuming task. Waste Connections of Texas is available for consultation to ensure that your building meets the requirements necessary for a safe, efficient waste collection program.

Before you begin the design and construction of your next property, please contact one of our commercial waste collection experts at 855-244-9248 or follow the links below to learn more about our commercial containers and specifications.
