Official news about the City of Cedar Park from the City of Cedar Park.  
The weather is going to be changing rapidly this weekend. Make sure to check our City website, Twitter and Facebook for updates. Report a Problem here.
Wintry weather facilities closures information
Even with fair warning, Thursday’s ice storm proved to catch many off-guard and create even more treacherous conditions than originally anticipated. Due to the nature of this ever-evolving weather event, we will share the most up-to-date information on our City website, and Facebook and Twitter feeds. Whatever the weekend brings, we encourage everyone to continue taking care of the 4 Ps: People, Pets, Pipes and Plants. Monday is expected to bring an especially hard freeze, perhaps in the single digits. 
Trash delays
Due to icy conditions, Friday’s (February 12) trash and recycling pickup is delayed to Saturday. Please leave your bins out on the curb so that crews can collect your trash and recycling tomorrow. 

Check our website for the latest updates and information.

Trash/recycling delays?
As mentioned, Friday's trash/recycling pickup is delayed to Saturday. Given the forecast, if If you experience a delay during next week, please keep in mind it could be weather-related. Please check the City website for updates. Leave out your bin(s) for collection the next possible day. If you experience a multiple-day delay, please report it so our trash/recycling crews can respond efficiently.

Spot a downed tree?

Does the City have a plan for picking up downed trees and limbs from the ice storm?
Yes, after this winter weather event is over, the City will provide detailed instructions for curbside pickup. 

If it’s on a neighborhood street or sidewalk, please report it to us here. If it’s causing a life-threatening hazard in a major roadway or is creating another serious issue – such as pulling down a power line – please call 9-1-1. Please know that our Police and Firefighters have been responding non-stop weather-related accidents and other emergencies, and our Public Works crews are working around the clock to clear fallen trees across sidewalks and streets throughout Cedar Park. 
City offices and facilities closed this Monday
Monday, February 15, 2021, City offices, the Rec Center and the Library will be closed for Presidents Day. 

Your trash and recycling pickup remains on schedule, but keep in mind that there could be weather-related delays. Check the City website for updates.
First Down Ride Along
Lifetime Texas Longhorn and NFL Running Back D’Onta Foreman teamed up with the Cedar Park Police Department for the First Down Ride Along Program, last Friday, February 5, 2021. CPPD was honored to be chosen to participate in this nationwide program of the BamFam Foundation. The Ride Along Program is designed to help bridge the gap between kids, their local community and law enforcement. 

D’Onta Foreman joined CPPD for a ride along, a curriculum based Q & A session and sports clinic for area youth at Cedar Park High School. Areas of priority included education, community/police relations, racial equality and economic development - empowering athletes, sports leaders and the community to become effective advocates for change.

Household Hazardous Waste (HHW)
Due to continued concerns surrounding COVID and unnecessary gathering of large groups of people (including City employees and contractors), we are not able to hold the Spring 2021 Household Hazardous Waste Free Cleanup event. We are exploring other possibilities and will keep you updated.
In the meantime, here are a couple of options for safely disposing of your household hazardous waste:  

You may want to review these websites to see what is accepted at these two facilities, and if there are any fees associated with what you are disposing.
