In recent years, advances in drilling technology have made it possible for energy companies to extract large amounts of natural gas from the Barnett Shale.
A pad generally 300 feet by 300 feet will be prepared and a drilling rig will move onto the location. The drilling rig will be on site for approximately 20-30 days actually “drilling” the well and running pipe into the open hole. After the well is drilled the drilling rig will move off. The rig move and drilling is a 24 hour operation and is probably the noisiest part of the operation. Shortly thereafter, well “completion” will begin and a smaller portable rig will move onto the location.
After completion operations, surface equipment will be installed along with appropriate fencing and gates. From this point there will be minimal activity on the location. Occasionally a small rig will be brought to the location for remedial work.
Residents who do want to wait until the next collection event in Burleson can take their household hazardous waste to the Environmental Collection Center (ECC) in Fort Worth. The ECC is open Thursdays and Fridays from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. It is located at 6400 Bridge Street in Fort Worth. For directions, call 817-392-EASY (3279).
There is no fee for dropping off your household hazardous waste, however, residents must present a water or solid waste bill as proof of residency.
For more information, please call Environmental Services at 817-426-9842 or visit the Household Hazardous Waste page.
Whenever possible, stay indoors during spraying. If you must go outside during spraying, wear clothing that limits skin contact with the spray. If you come in contact with the spray, wash your skin and clothing with soap and water. Wash any fruits and vegetables that were outside during spraying with water before storing, cooking or eating. Some individuals are sensitive to pesticides. Persons with asthma or other respiratory conditions are encouraged to stay inside during spraying since there is a possibility that spraying could worsen these conditions. Anyone experiencing adverse reactions to pesticides should seek medical care or call 911. Talk to your doctor if you have major health concerns.

A pad generally 300 feet by 300 feet will be prepared and a drilling rig will move onto the location. The drilling rig will be on site for approximately 15 days per well actually drilling the well and running pipe or casing into the hole. After the well is drilled the drilling rig will move off. Shortly thereafter a smaller “work over” rig will move in and prepare the wells for hydraulic fracturing. This process may take 2-3 days per well. The hydraulic fracturing is the noisiest part of the process and is limited to the daytime hours. Hydraulic fracturing generally takes 7-10 days per well depending on depth. Next the initial flowback will occur. This is necessary for most of the salt water to be produced from the well so the gas will then flow more easily. This process can take several days per well. The well completions process is next and a small portable rig will move back onto the site.
After completion operations, surface equipment will be installed along with appropriate fencing, gates, and landscaping. From this point there will be minimal activity on the location. Occasionally a small rig may be brought to the location for remedial work.

Safety Seat Guidelines
Safety belts are designed for adults, not children. Use a booster seat to lift your child up and prevent severe injuries in a crash. View an informational video about the proper use of child safety seats.
Please remember the following guidelines when buying the proper seat for your child:
Birth-1 Year, Up to 35 Pounds•Use a rear-facing seat until your baby reaches the weight limit or height limit of the seat.•Secure the chest clip even with your baby's armpits.•Fasten harness straps snugly against your baby's body.
1-4 Years, 20 to 40 Pounds•Use a forward-facing seat for as long as the safety seat manufacturer recommends it.•Fasten harness straps snugly against your child's body.•Secure the chest clip even with your child's armpits.•Latch the tether strap to the corresponding anchor if your vehicle has one.
4-8 Years, Over 40 Pounds•Use a booster seat.•Fasten the lap belt across your child's thighs and hips, not stomach.•Strap the diagonal belt across the chest to rest on the shoulder, not the neck.

If you don’t want to go the compost/mulch/recycling center, set the Christmas tree at the curb along with bulk trash, brush, limbs and yard waste during your zone collection week. The tree needs to be at the curb no later than 7 a.m. on the Monday of your zone collection week. To verify which zone your home click on Specials by Zone for a map below. You may also call the Municipal Service Center at 817-426-9835. Specials by Zone Map
The center is located at:610 MemorialBurleson, TX 76028
According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, annually nearly 2,000,000 crashes occur in intersections. In 2005, red light running resulted in 800 fatalities and over 165,000 injuries.
Statistics have shown that an automated red light camera program will reduce the number of red light crashes and injuries associated with such crashes. The purpose of this program is to increase traffic safety in Burleson. The goal of the program is to reduce red light running violations, red light crashes, and red light injury crashes without impacting City funds. This is a public safety program.
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.
Residents may take their leaves, brush, yard waste and limbs to the Compost Center behind Fire Station # 2 on Memorial Plaza or may set them out for once a month collection by the City. You can look up your collection days here. Yard waste and leaves must be bagged in approved paper lawn bags readily available at local retailers and left at the site, bag and all. If the yard waste or leaves is in plastic bags, the resident is responsible for dumping the contents on site and removing the plastic bags from the premises.
Tree limbs cut to 4-foot lengths or shorter are collected on a monthly basis. There is no need to call in for a tree limb pick up because the brush collection truck crews survey the city by zones and collect tree limbs as they are found. Solid waste crews will provide a list of tree limbs/brush locations for collection by the brush truck operator. Smaller tree limb piles may be collected by the solid waste crews when they complete their regular routes; however, larger piles must be collected by the brush truck operator. Storm debris and heavy trimming associated with the spring can sometimes results in collection delays of up to 30 days.
Please have you items out at the curb by 7:00 a.m. the Monday of your week's collection. The crews will work through Friday clearing your zone of special pick up items.
It is projected to be approximately $1.50 less than the current rate.
The $1.50 savings assumes one 95-gallon cart for garbage and one 65-gallon cart for recycling.
There are options regarding trash that won't fit in the carts the specifics have yet to be determined; they will ultimately be decided by Council using survey data and the RFP.
We spoke with SurveyMonkey (the company who is providing the survey), and they said it did not appear to be a glitch and recommended that devices and web browsers be up-to-date before the survey is taken. Below are the images with the correlating question number. You can also contact (817) 426-9835 and request a hard copy be mailed to you or take the survey from a desktop computer, if you do not have access to a desktop computer the Burleson Public Library has computers you can use.
That is hard to say because it depends on what is inside of the trash bags and if the content in trash bags can be compressed or not. For instance if you are recycling cardboard boxes versus plastic bottles. The trash carts that are being proposed are 95-gallon and the proposed recycling carts are 65-gallons you could the gallon size of the trash bags used in comparison to the size of the carts.
If the City continues with using trash bags and having service twice-a-week then your trash day would not be made up. Trash would be picked up on your next scheduled trash day of that week.
If the City moves to the bins with once-a week-collections than collection would shifts days but will still be picked up during that week.
Twice per week watering schedule:
Second, we recommend you do a dye test on your toilets. Put some food coloring in the tank of the toilet, don't flush it, go back in about 30 minutes or so. If any of the colored water from the tank is in the bowl of the toilet, your toilet is leaking. This is a major water waster because a lot of times people don't realize the toilet is leaking because the water isn't going in the floor.
Third, if you have an irrigation system, check the settings. Customers have said that they have had more than one program on at the same time and didn't realize it until they checked their programs.
