Use any color plastic bag for trash except blue or red.
Place all trash in plastic bags (not in boxes or other unsecured receptacles), making sure the bags are secured tightly to prevent the scattering of waste materials.
Nobody likes to get cut with broken glass or stuck with a needle and neither do our friendly trash collectors. Please follow these easy steps before setting your trash at the curb:
- Place any needles in an empty laundry detergent jug or other container before disposal.
- Wrap any broken mirror glass in newspaper and tape before placing in a trash bag or in a box marked "broken mirror."
- Place any broken bottles or jars in a cardboard box clearly marked "broken glass."
Use an 18-gallon recycling bin. Do not bag your recycle materials. Continue to place your recycle materials loosely into your recycle bins (blue bags tangle processing equipment).
See the Curbside Recycling Program for more information.
To schedule a free curbside pick-up of bulky waste items, call Grand Prairie Disposal at metro 817-261-8812. This is a free service and available weekly.
Bulky items only include old or unwanted appliances and furniture such as washers, refrigerators, sofas and chairs. Carpet, fencing, and building materials are not considered Bulky items. These items are construction and demolition wastes and can be taken to the Grand Prairie Landfill.
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.
