TxSWANA Recognizes Dallas for Safety Improvements


During its annual conference April 20, 2018 the Lone Star Chapter of the Solid Waste Association of America (TxSWANA) recognized the City of Dallas for making significant safety improvements since last year.  Dallas applied for, but didn't win, the organization's signature safety award, the Jimmy Huff.  The competitive Jimmy Huff Safety Award is given to the organization which has the largest reduction in time lost due to work-related injury or illness from one year to the next. 

Although Dallas didn't have the largest year to year reduction, TxSWANA judges were so impressed with Dallas' progress to improve its record, a special recognition was created for the City of Dallas.  Dallas Sanitation Services assistant director Dennis Ware accepted the award on behalf of the organization.

​The City of Dallas Sanitation Services will be collecting garbage, recycling and brush/bulk as scheduled for the residents impacted by the Atmos Energy natural gas outage.  If your alley is closed for service on your collection day, we are asking residents to place their garbage and recycling roll carts at the curb for collection. For more information and updates on the Atmos Energy planned natural gas outage in Northwest Dallas, click here.
