Changes in bulk and brush schedule for Dallas residents

Changes in bulk and brush schedule for Dallas residents

Updated July 25 at 3:30 p.m.

Sanitation Services has completed sweeps of Week 2, 3 and 4 areas in the City. Week 1 is in progress and is expected to be complete by August 3.

Standard brush and bulk collection will resume in August, with the following schedule:

August Brush and Bulk Collection
Week 1 August 5
Week 2 August 12
Week 3 August 19
Week 4 August 26

Sanitation Services has estimated to have collected over 500,000 cubic yards of debris since the June 9 storm, of an estimated 650,000 cubic yards of debris generated. In comparison, a standard month results in just over 100,000 cubic yards of brush collections.

Storm debris collection following June storms

As a result of heavy storms in June, the City of Dallas’ Sanitation Services is asking residents to limit brush/bulk set-outs to storm debris only for the remainder of the month.  Additionally, normal Brush and Bulk Service will be suspended in July so that crews can focus on storm debris collection. Only storm debris will be collected in July. The City also requests that residents place tree debris, branches or shrubbery separate from other storm debris such as damaged fence panels or bagged storm debris.

Clean tree and green waste may be collected separately and taken to temporary processing sites nearby to expedite the overall collection process. Mixing or co-mingling storm debris will slow citywide collection efforts.

Code Compliance will not issue citations for storm debris related items, even if they are placed out before the regular cycle. Non-storm related items, such as furniture, appliances and mattresses, are still subject to citation.

Sanitation Services is planning to return to their normal bulk and brush waste schedule in August.

Residents are encouraged to report downed trees, traffic lights and other debris issues to 311.
