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, leaves, limbs and bulk must be at the curb by 7:00 a.m. the morning of collection. Leaves are now part of your garbage collection. You no longer have to place them in the paper yard bags. Collection is twice a week for garbage and once a week for recycling. Collection of tree limbs cut to 6-foot lengths or shorter are collected both during the weekly small bulk collection of 3 cubic yards or less (always set out on your second garbage collection day) and monthly in accordance to your respective zone on the Monday of your designated zone week. These collections are pre-set; therefore, there is no need to call for a scheduled collection. Call the Public Works department at 817-426-9835 if you have any further questions. Reasons for not collecting could be that the bags are over 35 pounds; there is an obstruction keeping them from getting to the collection, i.e., vehicle parked in front of item, tree or other obstruction preventing the use of the brush truck and/or late set out of these items.
There are now multiple opportunities to set out your Special Pick up items. The monthly collection by zone for large bulk and the added weekly small bulk collection on every second garbage collection day. Check the ReCollect page to determine your zone.
For large bulk monthly collection dates, use the following:
Items must be set out no later than 7:00 a.m. of your zone collection week. For weekly small bulk collection of 3 cubic yards or less, use you scheduled second collection day and set out with your garbage by 7:00 a.m. on those days.
Limbs (not to exceed 6-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 bulk items will be collected monthly for the large bulk collection per your zone and on your second garbage collection day on the weekly small bulk collection (3 cubic yards or less).
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.
