Why did they leave my garbage, leaves, or limbs behind?
All garbage must be set out to the curb by 7:00 a.m. on your collection day. If the garbage is out on time and not collected, please contact the Public Works Department at 817-426-9835.

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.
