Residential trash is collected by Waste Management on WEDNESDAYS AND SATURDAYS. Trash trucks provide service beginning at 7 a.m. on scheduled trash days. If your trash was set out for collection by 7 a.m. and was not collected by the end of the day, contact Waste Management at 972-315-5400 to report the problem. Trash collection will be scheduled for no later than the next business day. If Saturday trash was missed, the next business day would be on Monday.
Trash containers may consist of plastic or treated paper bags, galvanized iron, tin or other suitable metal or plastic cans with a tight fitting lid and a handle for removal. Residents are responsible for providing portable container(s) for the placement of all trash to provide containment of trash at the collection point to prevent littering.
Place your trash in containers or bags at the end of your driveway (street or alley) by 7 a.m. on scheduled trash days. Containers need to be taken back up to the house within 24 hours of trash collection.
Waste Management will pick up a maximum of one cubic yard of trash per residence. One cubic yard is comparable to filling up the back of a one ton pick-up truck. If there is an excessive amount of trash, residents may take it directly to the landfill, or wait until Waste Management returns on the next scheduled pick-up day. For a fee, residents may also call Waste Management for special collection services.
BULKY WASTE collection is every Saturday at your regular trash collection point. Residents must call Waste Management at 972-315-5400 by 12:00 pm on the Thursday before collection to arrange for a pick-up. Bulky waste is limited in size to what two men can reasonably place into a standard one ton truck. This includes all items larger than you can bag or put in the container, which might include sofas, BBQ grills, hot water heaters, mattresses, carpeting, etc. Freezers, Refrigerators, and A/C units must have a certificate that the CFC's have been removed. To have the CFC's removed; call a certified technician or plumber.
TREE AND BRUSH TRIMMINGS must be prepared by cutting trimmings into 5 ft. lengths and tying the bundles so they weigh less than 50 pounds. Tree trunks must be less than 6" in diameter. Any trunks larger than 6" in diameter will not be picked up. Place the bundles at your regular collection point on your recycling day. Waste Management will pick up a maximum of one cubic yard of tree and brush trimmings per residence. One cubic yard is comparable to filling up the back of a one ton pick-up truck.
Trash, bulky waste or yard waste that exceeds the size or volume limitations will not be collected with regular trash pick-up. Special collection services for these items must be arranged directly with Waste Management. Payment for such services will be the responsibility of the resident.
UNACCEPTABLE ITEMS include construction debris, wood pallets, landscape timbers, concrete, soil/dirt, liquids, and household hazardous wastes.
Report missed collections to Waste Management at 972-315-5400.
