SoPac Trail Clean Up Team
Saturday, November 13, 2021, 8:30 AM at SoPac Trail
In January 2020, our clean up team began picking up litter on the SoPac Trail adjacent to our neighborhood. The previous seven years our clean up team maintained an area near the spillway and Winsted Road at White Rock Lake. Our new clean up site begins under the Mockingbird Bridge continuing to the Trestle Bridge near White Rock Park. The clean up takes about an hour. We meet the 2nd Saturday of every month at 8:30am.
Singles, couples and families are welcome. Kids love using the grabbers and take pride in picking up litter. Teens may earn community service hours and may flex their hours. If you are interested in joining our team or need more information please email Chairperson Pat Watson, Neighbors@LakewoodTrails.net or call her at
214 531 1299.

2021 BRUSH AND BULK COLLECTION
Posted on Jan 1st, 2021
Lakewood Trails brush and bulk trash collection is the third week of the Month. For 2021, the weeks are: Jan 18, Feb 15, Mar 14, Apr 18, May 16, Jun 20, Jul 18, Aug 15, Sept 19, Oct 17, Nov 14, and Dec 19.

More information and answers to FAQs: 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.
