The City of Grand Prairie provides trash collection to each residence twice a week. Recycling collection is on one of your regular trash days. Separate trucks pick up trash and recycling.
All trash and recycling must be set out by 7 a.m. on your scheduled collection day but no earlier than 8 p.m. the night before your collection day.
The Grand Prairie Landfill – a service for Grand Prairie residents and businesses – accepts household and commercial solid waste that has been generated in Grand Prairie Monday through Saturday during normal operating hours.

For the convenience of Grand Prairie residents, the City of Grand Prairie 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.

To help save valuable space in our city landfill, Grand Prairie does not pick up grass clippings from your curb or alley. Between March and September, the volume of residential solid waste increases 20-50 percent because of grass clippings.
By leaving your clippings on the lawn after you mow and allowing them to work back into the soil, you can have a naturally beautiful lawn. Grass clippings also make excellent compost for gardens. Learn more about "Don't Bag It" Lawn Care Plan in Grand Prairie.
