LTNA CELEBRATES CHRISTMAS WITH THE DALLAS POLICE DEPARTMENT
For the 10th year in a row, a group of Lakewood Trails families delivered a delicious Christmas Meal to the Dallas Police Department Northeast Substation on Christmas morning to show our gratitude and support for our local police officers. A delectable array of holiday food was prepared by our neighbors, as well as purchased from Central Market. Thanks to the very generous donations from Lakewood Trails neighbors, over $1,000 was collected for the meal. We also thank everyone who contributed to this effort with food and delivery help on their busy Christmas mornings. And a huge "thank you" goes out to Bethany Andres for coordinating this important Lakewood Trails event this year!

Host Need for Valentine's Event!
Posted on Jan 16th, 2020
Want to help out with a beloved Lakewood Trails event? We need a host for our 2020 Valentine's Cookie Swap. About 25 parents and children bring decorated Valentine's cookies and decorate bags to give to special Lakewood Trails neighbors. Then bags are split between the participants to deliver to our neighbors. The LTNA Association provides all of the supplies, we just need a house to hold the hour long event.
This event has been set up both inside and outside in years past, depending on the weather. This will need to take place on Friday February 9, Saturday February 10 or Sunday February 11, the weekend before Valentine's Day. We hope one of your can lend your home to keep up this wonderful Lakewood Trails tradition. Email us at Neighbors@LakewoodTrails.net to volunteer.
2020 Brush and Bulk Collection
Posted on Jan 14th, 2020
Lakewood Trails brush and bulk trash collection is the third week of the Month. For 2020, the weeks are: Jan 19, Feb 16, Mar 15, Apr 19, May 17, Jun 14, Jul 19, Aug 16, Sept 21, Oct 18, Nov 15, and Dec 20. Items must be set out by 7am on the Monday of collection week, but not earlier than the Thursday before our collection week.
More information and to download the Dallas Sanitation app: DallasBrushandBulk.com
On June 19, 2019 the Dallas City Council adopted an ordinance amending regulations related to brush and bulky trash. Monthly brush and bulky trash collection will be limited to 10 cubic yards. (10 cubic yards = approximately 10 stoves). One month per calendar year, residents may set out up to 20 cubic yards, provided it is requested by calling 3-1-1 in advance. Enforcement of these new limits begins on July 1, 2020.
Where the quantity of brush and bulky trash set out for collection exceeds 10 cubic yards and a request for an oversized brush and bulky trash collection was not submitted, the set out may be collected and a fee will be assessed on the dwelling unit's water bill. The fee will be assessed at a rate of $60 per five cubic yards, billed in five cubic yard increments. A citation may be issued in addition to the collection fee.
The Department of Sanitation Services will begin a public awareness campaign in early 2020 to alert residents of the changes to brush and bulky trash regulations.
