Trash Collection


Trash is considered all household refuse other than recyclables, bundled brush or unacceptable waste.


Residents provide their own containers for trash. All trash must be in plastic bags or garbage cans/carts weighing no more than 35 pounds when full. Households are limited to 10 bags or four cans/carts per collection. Blue carts provided by the City are for recycling only.

Collection Schedule

Trash is collected twice a week beginning at 7 a.m. 

If your trash collection day falls on an observed holiday, collection will resume on the next regularly scheduled day. Observed holidays include New Year’s Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas Day.

Bulky Waste

Bulky items are collected on your regular garbage collection days.  Place these items on the curb:

  • Appliances (refrigerators, freezers, air conditioners or other appliances containing coolants must contain written or visual evidence that the chlorofluorocarbons (CFC) have been removed by a certified, authorized and licensed technician)
  • Furniture
  • Mattresses

Bundled Brush 

Brush, limbs,  yard debris, and twigs will be collected if tied in bundles no more than 4 feet in length, and weighing approximately 50 pounds or less each and no larger than 1 cubic yard (need help visualizing 1 cubic yard?). 

Bulky Brush 

Bulky brush is a separate service for larger tree limbs, debris and tree stumps. Bulky brush must be cut into six-foot lengths, and does not have to be bundled. Bulky brush is not eligible for regular pick-up on garbage collection days. Tree limbs and tree debris may also be hauled by residents to a local landfill.

If you have excessive brush or bulky waste greater than one cubic yard (need help visualizing 1 cubic yard?), please contact Frontier Waste Solutions at 817-961-1125 directly to schedule, or  fill out this form, and you will be contacted by a Frontier representative to arrange a pickup. Bulky Brush collection is charged $160.00 per hour with a one-hour minimum. Once payment is confirmed, your pickup will be scheduled, typically on a Thursday or Friday. Please call ahead for the service, and do not put materials at the curb until your scheduled day.

Small Commercial Curbside Collection Service 

This service is intended for businesses that generate no more than three bags of garbage from normal operation per collection day. These are typically located in reformed houses where a business is now operating. Please complete the application form (PDF) and follow the return instructions for consideration of this service.

Unacceptable Items

These are defined as construction debris, loose brush, hazardous chemicals, paint, and other items listed in the City’s Garbage and Recycling Ordinance as unacceptable.

Residents seeking to take items to a local landfill are encouraged to call ahead for hours of operation, pricing, and to confirm material acceptance.
