In an effort to slow the spread of the destructive Emerald Ash Borer Beetle, the State of Texas has quarantined all BRUSH and TREE LIMBS 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 and TREE LIMBS 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.
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.
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.
- The “FULL WEEK” schedule is defined by a normal work week consisting of Monday – Friday.
Brush must be placed at the curb (roadside if no curb) no earlier than 1 week prior to the regularly scheduled once-per-month ZONE service. Residents can be fined for putting out brush before the allowed 1 week prior to regularly scheduled ZONE service.
Please place your brush and limbs on your curb no later than the Monday morning of your designated week for service.
Brush will not be picked up in the alley.
Brush must be neatly piled (not scattered) at least 2 feet from utility poles, low hanging trees, fences, gas/water meters, fire hydrants, mailboxes and sprinkler heads, along with any other obstacles that would prevent collection.
Brush will not be picked up if parked vehicles or other obstructions are present.
Brush cannot at any time block City sidewalks, right-of-way, or the view of oncoming traffic.
During and after extreme weather conditions, which may cause unusually large volumes of brush, the regular collection schedule may be disrupted or delayed.
City, State and Federal holidays may disrupt or delay zone pickup schedules. Service will resume on the next business day.
