Important Reminder!

Trash, Recycling, Bulky Pickup Begins at 7 a.m.

The Environmental Waste Services Department launched the Route Optimization program in early March. As a result of balancing the residential collection routes for trash, recycling and brush and bulky goods, EWS is experiencing a higher than normal volume of missed collections and reminds residents to have their trash, recycling, and brush and bulky goods at the collection point by 7 a.m. on the day of collection.

“Our routes are timed to begin at 7 a.m. and end by 5:30 p.m.,” explained Lonnie Banks, EWS Managing Director. “If all containers are at the collection point by 7 a.m., we avoid missed collections and gain efficiencies to provide better service to all our customers.”

For more information, please call EWS Customer Service at 972-205-3500 or email at ewscustomerservice@garlandtx.gov or check the solid waste and recycling collection schedules.
