Updated Trash & Brush Collection Information

Post Date:04/07/2020 8:04 AM

Trash Collection

Effective Wednesday, April  8, Republic Services will begin collecting brush and bulk materials on a scaled back schedule. Collection trucks dedicated to collecting only brush and bulk materials will be operating on residents’ recycling day only. Regular trash crews will continue to collect only regular bagged household waste. Please keep bagged household waste separate from brush and bulk materials to assist with collection efforts.

Due to the potential risk to waste collection crews, the city’s garbage provider, Republic Services, respectfully requests residents: 

  • Place all trash in plastic bags (not in boxes or other unsecured receptacles). Secure bags tightly to prevent the scattering of waste materials. 
  • Please do not bag your recycle materials, continue to place your recycle materials loosely into your recycle bins (blue bags tangle processing equipment).

For additional information about Trash Collection Guidelines, please contact Republic Services, 817-317-2000. Visit the city's Garbage Collection page for scheduled Garbage and Recycling routes.

Brush and Limb Collection

The city will continue to offer once-per-month residential collection of brush and tree limbs no larger than 10 inches in diameter and no longer than 5 feet in length. Brush must be placed at the curb. City equipment cannot pick up brush from alleys.  This collection does not include bagged leaves. 

For brush collection info, call 972-237-8525 or visit the city’s Brush Program Information page.
