Trash means solid waste (excluding ashes), consisting of both combustible and noncombustible waste materials. Combustible trash includes paper, rags, cartons, wood, wood shavings, furniture, rubber, plastics, and brush; noncombustible trash includes glass, crockery, tin cans, aluminum cans, metal and similar materials that will not burn at ordinary incinerator temperatures. The term does not include grass clippings or leaves.
All garbage must be set out to the curb by 7:00 a.m. on your collection day. If the garbage is out on time and not collected, please contact the Public Works Department at 817-426-9835. Tree limbs cut to 4-foot lengths or shorter are collected on a monthly basis. There is no need to call in for a tree limb pick up because the brush collection truck crews survey the city by zones and collect tree limbs as they are found. Solid waste crews will provide a list of tree limbs/brush locations for collection by the brush truck operator. Smaller tree limb piles may be collected by the solid waste crews when they complete their regular routes; however, larger piles must be collected by the brush truck operator. Storm debris and heavy trimming associated with the spring can sometimes results in collection delays of up to 30 days.
Please have you items out at the curb by 7:00 a.m. the Monday of your week's collection. The crews will work through Friday clearing your zone of special pick up items.
Limbs (not to exceed 4-foot in length), brush, lumber, wood, mattresses, furniture, carpet (cut into four-foot rolls), appliances that do not contain freon, large toys, lawn mowers / weed eaters / edgers that have had the gasoline and oil drained, outdoor grills without the propane tank, and other large bulk items will be collected monthly according to the zone pick-up schedule.
Items that crews cannot collect include, but are not limited to appliances that have not had the freon removed, automotive parts, brick, building materials, concrete, dirt, hazardous materials, oil, paint, railroad ties, rock, roofing materials, shingles, and treated lumber.
