HALLOWEEN YARD OF THE MONTH 2021

The winner received a $50 gift certificate thanks to North Haven Gardens, the Lakewood Trails Yard of the Month sponsor for 2021.

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. 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 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.
