Service Delays

All commercial and residential trash/recycling bulky collections have resumed regularly scheduled collections. The week of February 22nd is a blue recycling collections week. All facilities are open.

Please do not place excess household trash in your blue recycling cart. Any excess trash can be bagged and placed at the curb where your brush and bulky materials are normally collected. Excess recyclables can be brought to the Residential Recycling Center. 

Announcements about large service delays or cancellations are updated here, on the Environmental Waste Service News Flash page, on the City of Garland News Flash page, social media channels, via the Alerts system and Garland E-News.

Inclement Weather

All Garland residents and businesses should be aware that during inclement weather, brush & bulky goods collection services and commercial collection services may be delayed due to the conditions at the C.M. Hinton Jr. Regional Landfill. Please call us at 972-205-3500 to confirm if your routes have been impacted.

During and immediately after rain events, the C.M. Hinton Jr. Regional Landfill restricts access to the working face to vehicles with 4-wheel drive only. Please call the landfill at 972-205-3670 to verify if you can dump.

Weather Related Service Delays

During the winter months, there are times when weather conditions are such that garbage cannot be safely collected. Even when the roads appear safe, there are many secondary roads that are not passable for collection trucks.

We consider the safety of our employees and the general public to be the primary consideration when evaluating whether to provide solid waste collection services during a potentially hazardous weather/storm event. Services may be delayed or canceled.

Street Project Service Delays

Some street or alley projects may cause delays in trash, recycling or brush and bulky collection while others street or alley projects require collection locations to be relocated. Visit the Current Street Projects page to see if you're location is affected.

Holiday Service Delays

There are currently no City Holiday related service delays.
