Updated Trash & Brush Collection Information
Following guidelines for trash, bulk, brush and recycling collection...
Effectively immediately bagged leaves will no longer be picked up by garbage collection due to a shortage of sanitation workers and an abundance of residential trash during COVID-19 Shelter At Home restrictions. Residents may take bagged leaves to the landfill for disposal, hold bags until COVID-19 has passed, or create a compost bin for the leaves.
As we continue to balance supply and demand, bagged leaves join the list of other items not being collected at this time: bulky items, brush and limbs, even if bagged.
Trash and recycling collection will continue on your scheduled days. Bulky items that will not be picked-up include any objects too large for placement in normal collection or unwanted appliances and furniture such as washers, refrigerators, sofas, chairs etc. You may take these items to the landfill.
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.
