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 trash 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).
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 additional information about Trash Collection Guidelines, please contact Republic Services, 817-317-2000. For brush collection info, call 972-237-8525 or visit the city’s Brush Program Information page.

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.
