Service Guidelines

  • Brush and bulk waste (including appliances) is collected weekly on your regular collection day at the street curb in front of the home, not the alley.

  • Brush (tree trimmings, limbs and branches) and bulk waste (items too large for green roll-out containers, including bagged or boxed material). All limbs should be cut into 4-foot lengths and placed in bundles not exceeding 40 pounds to fit in a rear-end loader truck.
  •  Appliances such as stoves and water heaters are collected curbside on customers' regular collection day. There is no additional charge, and customers do not need to call for collection. 

    • Refrigerant-using appliances must be confirmed emptied of the chemical by a certified professional. Check Dallas-area yellow page listings under "Refrigerant Service" for local providers
  • Materials from small home-repair projects should not exceed a 6ft by 4ft neatly stacked pile (about the size of a side by side refrigerator)
  • Loose bulk items should be bagged or boxed and not exceed 50 pounds for safe, manageable collection. Boom Truck size limits are 2,000 lbs/per item and a maximum length of 12 feet
  • Plate glass should be taped corner to corner and side to side, or broken and secured inside a box as loose material above
  • Old railroad ties used for retaining walls are accepted. New railroad ties require a disposal fee at the landfill

Restricted Items

  • Brick, tile, stone and concrete blocks are not accepted for bulk collection
  • Home-repair materials when generated by a contractor
  • Electronics, batteries, household chemicals, paint, automotive fluids and more are handled using the At Your Door program, not bulk

Alternatives

  • Bring materials not accepted to the landfill for disposal on approved days
  • Require contractor to remove all project generated debris as a part of their contract
  • Use a Bagster to dispose of construction debris (additional fees apply)
  • At Your Door Household Special Waste disposal
