Bulk Trash Week
Bulk trash runs during the second full week of each month. You can begin placing your bulk trash piles at 7 pm on the Friday evening before bulk trash week begins and the pile must be in place by 7 am on the Monday morning when bulk trash week begins. Your pile must fit within the following guidelines. If it does not, it may not be picked up and you will be responsible for paying to have it picked up or removing it from your curb.
- Keep the size of your pile to 10 cubic yards (8 ft long x 6 ft wide x 6 ft tall) or roughly the size of a VW Beetle
- Place your pile clear of low-hanging limbs, wires, mailboxes, parked cars, fences or any other obstructions
- No items generated from other locations
- No hazardous materials, tires, electronics, or appliances with coolant or gas
- Pile must be placed at an address with an active water account to be picked up
If your pile is not picked up after bulk trash week is over, please reinspect it to be certain that it meets all of the above guidelines. If it does, please call our waste collection company directly at 817-222-2221 and let them know your address and that you still need your bulk trash to be picked up.

Grease/Cooking Oil Recycling
Also at our Recycling Center at 8212 Albert Street is a grease/cooking oil recycling bin. Grease and cooking oil clog up pipes and can cause costly issues when not disposed of properly so now you can bring all of your household grease and cooking oil to the Recycling Center for safe disposal. All the grease/cooking oil that is recycled here gets turned into biodiesel fuel.
