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.
