Oct. 28 Brush Collection Update
EWS brush and bulky crews will be working in the Friday collection area on Tuesday, picking up unusually large amounts of brush downed by the recent storm. They will be working in the area bordered by Northwest Highway to the west, Centerville to the north, Broadway to the east, and Oates to the south. They will also have crews in the Tuesday collection area on Tuesday morning.
Check back for future updates.
Guidelines for Efficient Collection of Brush and Bulky Goods:
· Place at the collection point at the front curb and place away from stationary obstacles such as mailboxes, phone pedestals, electrical and cable boxes and low hanging wires
· Materials should not create a safety hazard by blocking the view of motorists
· Materials blocked by vehicles cannot be collected in order to avoid damage to parked vehicles
· Brush should not be mixed with other bulky waste such as mattresses and furniture
Residents are also reminded that they can haul bulky waste material at no cost to the Transfer Station, located at 1434 Commerce St. or to the C.M. Hinton, Jr. Regional Landfill, located at 3175 Elm Grove Rd. in Rowlett. Brush can also be hauled at no cost to the Wood Recycling Facility, located at the landfill. Residents must present their driver’s license and a copy of their most current utility bill. Hours of operation for the Transfer Station are Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., and hours for the Landfill and Wood Recycling Facility are Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and Saturday 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Brush & Bulky Goods Collection is provided for large household items that will not fit into your green trash container. All items placed for collection should be generated by residents at their own property. The city does not collect contractor-generated waste from construction repairs, remodeling jobs or treen/lawn work. Please follow these guidelines to facilitate brush & bulky waste collections:
Brush, bulky waste, appliances and bagged grass and leaves should be set out in separate, distinct piles.
Avoid placing brush or bulky waste near mailbox, cable box, sprinkler heads, overhanging limbs or other stationary obstructions.
Waste blocked by a parked vehicle will not be collected due to risk of damaging the vehicle.
Avoid placing brush where it interferes with motorist visibility.
Brush pickup is for residents who have performed tree or brush work on their property only.
Brush may be placed out any day within a week of collection. All other bulky items may only be placed at curbside after 6 a.m. on the day before collection. Brush and bulky items should be set out for collection no later than 7 a.m. on collection day.
Construction debris pickup is for residents who have performed remodeling work on their own property only and can be set out for collection only four times per year during each calendar year.
If we do not pick up your brush or bulky waste, we will leave a tag affixed to the pile explaining why it was not collected.
