When and where will brush be picked up?

This is a year round program that services the City on a monthly ZONE rotation basis. Each ZONE is serviced during a designated WEEK every month. Zones were created according to geographical areas, and serviced rotating from north to south, week by week.

  • Brush will be picked up only during your regularly scheduled once-per-month ZONE service week. Once your ZONE is serviced, the Brush Crew will not return to that ZONE until the following month's regularly scheduled service date.
  • No appointments will be taken.
  • No out-of-cycle pickups are allowed.
  • Only 1 pickup is allowed per residential address.
  • The “FULL WEEK” schedule is defined by a normal work week consisting of Monday – Friday.

Who can participate in the brush program?

This is a program for residential properties in Grand Prairie and does not include churches or commercial properties.

The City of Grand Prairie does not provide brush pickup services to private, gated communities or private mobile home communities.

Potential schedule delays

During and after extreme weather conditions, which may cause unusually large volumes of brush, the regular collection schedule may be disrupted or delayed.

City, State and Federal holidays may disrupt or delay zone pickup schedules. Service will resume on the next business day.
