An infestation of the destructive Emerald Ash borer beetle has been confirmed in Tarrant County. In an effort to slow the spread, the State of Texas has quarantined ALL brush and firewood from leaving Tarrant County.
As of April 12, 2019, residents of Grand Prairie who live in Tarrant County may no longer take brush or firewood to the Grand Prairie landfill. Because it is difficult to discern Ash tree limbs and brush from other species, the quarantine applies to ALL brush, limbs and firewood in Tarrant County.
- Leave brush on curb to be collected by the City Brush Crew during your regularly scheduled once-per month Zone service. Find Your Brush Zone
- You may take your brush to a Tarrant County location for a fee. The disposal fee is based on tonnage and waste type. Please call in advance for rates and operating hours.
