Bulk & Brush Trash, Recycling & Conservation

BULK TRASH PICKUP
 
LNA's Bulk Trash Week is always the 3rd Monday of each month.  The earliest brush and bulk garbage items can be placed out is the THURSDAY evening before the scheduled collection week.
 
The Bulk Trash Monthly Calendar can be viewed here

Signage: Our Neighborhood Bulk Trash Sign Leads, Karen & Nick Ramos, will set out the LNA Bulk Trash pick up signs as a reminder to residents when bulk trash is allowed to be placed curbside for pickup.
 
What Goes to the Curb?
  • Appliances. If an appliance has Freon (e.g. a/c unit or refrigerator) it is NOT accepted
  • Tree Limbs (8ft or less is preferable)
  • Shrubbery (please separate from bulky items)  
  • Bagged Leaves
  • Furniture*
  • Carpet
  • Mattresses
  • Other bulky items
*If you have bulky items that are in good condition and still functional, please consider donating them to the Salvation Army, Goodwill Industries of Dallas, Habitat for Humanity or any other local donation center.
 
What does not go to the Curb?
  • Tires
  • Passenger tires (25 inches or less) can be taken to the Landfill and the Northwest Transfer Station. Please limit to 6 per year per resident.
  • Construction Debris
  • Bricks, Concrete, Rocks, Dirt, etc.
  • Mirrors and Glass (e.g. window or shower glass)
  • Electronics (e.g. televisions, computers, etc.)
  • Car parts (e.g. engine)
  • Lawnmowers (or any machinery that may contain gasoline)
 
Tips to Avoid a Citation:
  • Do not put out material earlier than 7:00 a.m. on Thursday prior to your collection week (please see instructions above to find your Week). Material must be placed at the curb by 7:00 a.m. the Monday of the pickup week.*
  • Put materials on the curb in front of your home. Do not place on vacant lots or medians. Do not place materials in front of utility poles, traffic signs, utilities meters or hydrants.
  • Do not allow your bulky items or brush to block the sidewalk or protrude into the street.
*If you are in need of a brush or bulky item collection outside of your collection week, please use our Cost Plus service‚Äč.
 

RECYCLING
 
Remeber the three R's - Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. Practicing this mantra will cut down on the amount waste contributed to landfills every year. LNA encourages all three components of the waste stream management whenever possible. Items placed on your curb may disappear through "scrappers" who tour the neighborhood before bulk trash week, "dumpster divers" and even neighbors may pick up items to reuse them.
 
We suggest using paper lawn & garden bags rather than plastic.
CONSERVATION
 
Irrigation of landscaped areas with hose-end sprinklers or automatic irrigation sys¬tems is limited to no more than twice per week according to the MANDATORY schedule. No watering is allowed on Mondays, Tuesdays or Fridays and from April 1-October 31, watering is prohibited between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. on the allowed watering days. Drip irrigation, soaker hoses and hand watering are allowed on any day and at any time.
