Changes to Recycling and Garbage Pick-Up

Beginning in March 2010, every household in Dallas is switching to once-a-week garbage and recycling pick-up.  The City of Dallas Sanitation Department will be picking up our garbage and recycling once a week — both on the same day.  For many neighborhoods in Old East Dallas, that will mean shifting from alley service to curb service for trash collection because our alleys are too narrow for the larger trucks and large bins.

To educate residents about these changes, the city is hosting several community meetings.  I hope you’ll attend and pass along this information to your neighbors:
