Emerald Ash Borer Information
In an effort to slow the spread of the destructive Emerald Ash Borer Beetle, the State of Texas has quarantined all BRUSH, TREE LIMBS, and FIREWOOD from leaving Tarrant County. Grand Prairie residents who live in Tarrant County can no longer take ANY of these items to the Grand Prairie Landfill.
You can no longer cut, bundle, or bag, brush and tree limbs to put with your regular twice weekly garbage collection.
To assist the Tarrant County residents of Grand Prairie, your BRUSH, TREE LIMBS and FIREWOOD will be collected by the City's Brush Services Crew and disposed of inside Tarrant County. These items will be picked up during the regularly scheduled once-per-month ZONE service.
What is the Brush Program?
For the convenience of Grand Prairie residents, the City operates a Brush Pickup Program. This once-per-month service provides curbside pickup of tree limbs, brush, and firewood that are not bundled or bagged. This is for brush, tree limbs and firewood that is too large for the City's twice weekly garbage collection.
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.
What is allowed for pickup?
This program is intended for any parts of brush and tree limbs no larger than 10 inches in diameter and no longer than 5 feet in length. Limbs and tree trunks larger than these dimensions must be cut to fit within the maximum limitations. Items exceeding the measurements will not be picked up.
What is not allowed for pickup?
The Brush Service Crew will not pick up any grass clippings, leaves, weeds, flowers, wire, landscape timbers, fencing, plastic bags or other foreign materials.
The Brush Service Crew will not pick up brush and tree limbs that are larger than 10 inches in diameter or longer than 5 feet.
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.
