Trash and Recycling 

This page provides information that will help us keep our neighborhood looking great!

Recycling and weekly trash pick-up will happen every Monday.  Bulk Trash pickup occurs the first Monday of each month.  If you need to order a roll cart, you can order one at the City of Dallas Residential Garbage Collection.

Please do not put any kind of plastic bags in the blue recycle bins.  They get tangled in the recycling machinery.  

Bulk Trash

Your bulk trash can be placed out in front no earlier than the Thursday prior to bulky trash week. The City of Dallas' monthly service will pick up the bulk trash sometime during bulk trash week. The City of Dallas Sanitation crews drive the streets that Monday to determine how many trucks to assign for pick up so please have your trash out by 7:00 AM Monday morning. Trash should be placed on the streetside half of the sidewalk with the back half of the sidewalk clear for pedestrians. After bulk pick-up has been removed, be sure to sweep up any residual debris from the curb.   


The City collects bagged leaves in sealed bags (up to 50 gallons/50 pounds), tree limbs, furniture, appliances, mattresses, etc. Materials NOT collected include bagged grass clippings, new construction or remodeling materials, electronics, oversized items, etc. For more information on bulk trash guidelines as well as a downloadable calendar, visit City of Dallas Brush and Bulky Item Collection. 

On demand collection of brush/bulk trash outside of normal collection week can be picked up as a Cost Plus service. Call Sanitation Customer Service at (214) 670-8613 for a free estimate.

The City of Dallas does patrol neighborhoods for bulk trash violators and has increased code enforcement for bulk trash violators. Such violators are subject to a citation and a minimum fine of $261.00. To report debris in violation of the bulk trash ordinance, call 311 (anonymously, if you desire).

Thank you so much for your help in keeping our neighborhood clean!

Weekly garbage collections are once a week. Small amounts of brush cut to fit inside the cart are acceptable; however, grass, leaves, rocks, concrete, and building materials are not.

If you have street pick up, it is legal to place your roll cart in front ONLY the day of pickup. Earlier placement on the street is against city code and subject to citation. Whether your pickup is on the street or alley, you should place your roll cart on the curb or on the edge of your property beside the alley with the handle facing your home. The opening should face the street or alley. You should allow 3 feet of clearance on each side of the cart to prevent possible property damage during pick up. If you have any questions or if your roll cart is damaged or stolen, call the Department of Sanitation Service at (214) 670-8613 or 311 or visit City of Dallas Residential Garbage Collection.
