Depends on where you start from and what you want to dump.

I live in Hays county and I can take a load of non-garbage to the county yard, a few miles from my house. They charge me depending on the size of the load. It has always been pretty reasonable.

Im remodeling an 88 Excella which means ripping out most of the interior. I hauled most of the trash to the Williamson county landfill. I think it was $40 a
load.

Sorry all. I should have been more clear. I meant dumping my tanks.

I pull up in my driveway and dump into a wheeled portable tank. I empty it into my house sewer cleanout. I can handle about 10 gallons per trip and I can park the AI about 40' from the cleanout. Usually takes about 2 trips.

If you have a state park card, you could use the dump station at McKinney Falls SP for free (I generally keep a current state parks card because we camp several times a year in state parks and it pays for itself and then a bit, for us.)

If you're in a house, since your Interstate has a macerator pump-out you might be able to get close enough to your house's sewer cleanout to dump into it directly.

The Walnut Creek wastewater treatment plant has a dump station (might be kinda nasty, honeywagons dump there)

The front side of the Flying J on I35 in Jarrell has a dump at the RV fuel pumps... it's not actually a Flying J, it's a Chevron, only the big diesel station in the back is Flying J... at least in the past it was free to use, didn't require a code like lots of Pilot/Flying Js.

Most of the RV parks around will let you dump for a fee even if you're not staying there. Some are reasonable, some are ridiculous ($20 just to dump tanks)

If you have a “clean out” nearby your home run the dump hose there.

La Hacienda on Hudson Bend charges a small fee. Most RV parks are willing to take your money.
