FINAL PASS FOR STORM DEBRIS COLLECTION


Contract crews will begin a final pass through the October 20 tornado impact zone beginning January 2, 2020.  Residents in the affected area must have any remaining storm debris to the curb by January 1 to ensure it will be collected. 

Any debris set out after crews make this final pass through a street must comply with the normal brush and bulky trash rules and schedule, found here.

Tips to Avoid a Citation:

  • Do not put out material earlier than 7:00 a.m. on Thursday prior to your collection week (please see instructions above to find your Week). Material must be placed at the curb by 7:00 a.m. the Monday of the pickup week.*
  • Put materials on the curb in front of your home. Do not place on vacant lots or medians. Do not place materials in front of utility poles, traffic signs, utilities meters or hydrants.
  • Do not allow your bulky items or brush to block the sidewalk or protrude into the street.

*If you are in need of a brush or bulky item collection outside of your collection week, please use our Cost Plus service​.

Brush & Bulk Collection Changes Effective July 1, 2020


On June 19, 2019 the Dallas City Council adopted an ordinance amending regulations related to brush and bulky trash.  Monthly brush and bulky trash collection will be limited to 10 cubic yards.  One month per calendar year, residents may set out up to 20 cubic yards, provided it is requested by calling 3-1-1 in advance.  Enforcement of these new limits begins on July 1, 2020.

Where the quantity of brush and bulky trash set out for collection exceeds 10 cubic yards and a request for an oversized brush and bulky trash collection was not submitted, the set out may be collected and a fee will be assessed on the dwelling unit's water bill.  The fee will be assessed at a rate of $60 per five cubic yards, billed in five cubic yard increments.  A citation may be issued in addition to the collection fee.

The Department of Sanitation Services will begin a public awareness campaign in early 2020 to alert residents of the changes to brush and bulky trash regulations.
