Bulk trash days change

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. 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. — City of Dallas Staff Reports
