Trash and Recycling Service

Trash and Recycling Collection 

Community Waste Disposal (CWD) provides trash collection (Mondays and Thursdays) and curbside recycling (Thursdays). Service may be skipped or delayed if it falls on or around New Year’s Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day (4th of July), Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, or Christmas Day.

Trash must be placed in disposable bags not weighing more than 50 (fifty) pounds each and placed at the curb no later than 7:00 a.m. for service between 7:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. Please do not put trash out the night before. 

All recyclables must be empty, clean, and dry, and placed loosely inside the blue recycle cart. Do not bag recyclables. Please ensure the recycling cart is at least three feet (3') away from obstacles such as bagged trash, mailboxes, cars, fences, gas meters, and drainage ditches. Position the cart where the driveway meets the street, with wheels toward the residence.

Questions or Concerns?

Common questions are answered in the service brochure. Watch for service information and updates here, on Facebook and Instagram, in the newsletter, and via codeREDCWD is happy to assist you with questions, concerns, cart repair or replacement, and damages or spills. There are several ways to reach their customer service department:

Bulky Items and Yard Waste

Bulky waste will be collected on your regular trash pickup days. You are limited to one cubic yard (about the size of a washing machine) of bulky waste per collection. No single item should exceed 150 (one-hundred-fifty) pounds. Place all bulk items and bundled brush in front of your home and at least three feet (3') from your trash and recycling carts no later than 7:00 a.m. on your designated collection days. Please note that all material left outside the cart will be disposed of as trash. All brush must be tied and bundled. Bundled brush cannot exceed four feet by two feet nor weigh more than 50 (fifty) pounds per bundle. Grass clippings must not be blown into or otherwise left on streets or sidewalks (Code of Ordinances, Article 13.07. Stormwater Pollution Control). We recommend mulching the clippings back onto your lawn.

Have a load that exceeds the acceptable limit? Want it all picked up at once? Please contact CWD at 972-392-9300 for a price quote. Or, watch the calendar and newsletter for clean-up events (usually in April and October) when we provide dumpsters for residents to dispose of larger items. These cleanup events are a great opportunity to remove any limbs that overhang the street. Such limbs are prohibited because of their ability to impede or cause costly damage to fire trucks. No branch or growth can overhang a street lower than fourteen feet (14') or a sidewalk lower than seven feet (7') (Code of Ordinances, §12.08.004).

Acceptable Bulky Waste

  • toys, furniture, and yard tools (please clearly tag as “Bulk Item” so there is no doubt it is meant to be disposed of)
  • bundled carpet in four-foot (4') lengths
  • Fence Panels no Larger than four feet by six feet (4’ x 6’)
  • washing machines, dryers, water heaters, and kitchen appliances
  • refrigerators/freezers (must be tagged certifying removal of refrigerants)

Prohibited Bulky Waste

  • single items weighing more than one-hundred-fifty (150) pounds
  • commercial construction and remodeling debris
  • household hazardous waste (HHW)
  • tires, batteries, and propane tanks
  • loose brush or loose debris (debris must be placed in a box or other container no larger than 2’ x 2’ x 4’ and weighing no more than 50 (fifty) pounds.)

Free Landfill Voucher

Residents can request one (1) voucher per calendar year that allows a free visit to the landfill to drop off bulky waste like furniture, carpeting, or yard waste.

Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) and Used Electronics

The cost of this service is included in your monthly utility bill.
