New Monthly Bulk Collection Schedule

Bulk Trash

Effective January 1, the City’s bulk collection schedule will transition to a two-week process.  As the city has grown over the past several years, the volume of bulk and brush has increased to the point that the collection contractor is often unable to complete the entire city in one week. This has necessitated the schedule change, and while there will be an adjustment process for residents and staff, the changes will result in improved service overall.

There will be two zones for bulk collection.  Zone 1 consists of the area of the City east of Highway 78 and south of Sachse Road. Zone 2 consists of the areas west of Highway 78, as well as the areas east of Highway 78 that are also north of Sachse Road—this zone will include all areas of Woodbridge.  

Zone 1 will be collected during the week of each month that includes the first Monday of the month. In January 2018, this will be the week of New Year’s Day, with all collections moved back one day due to the holiday.  Have your bulk at the curb at 7am on Monday for pickup during the week.  Please note your adjusted schedule does not coincide with your regular trash day.  While the bulk and brush pickup service begins on Mondays, the amount of material throughout each zone may delay pickup until later in the week. For example, zone 1 pickup starts on the first Monday of the month, but because of high volume, residents in the zone may not see pickup trucks until later in the week.   The same is true for zone 2.  

Zone 2 will be collected during the week of each month that includes the second Monday of the month.  Have your bulk at the curb at 7am on Monday for pickup during the week.  Your adjusted schedule does not coincide with your regular trash day.  All other procedures related to bulk will remain the same as in the past.

Please watch your mail for more information coming directly from Republic Services which will include the entire schedule for garbage, recycling, and bulk for 2018.  Your December bill will not include an additional bulk calendar.  Thank you for your cooperation during this transition—our goal is to provide improved collection service to all our citizens.
