ADJUSTED BULK SCHEDULE
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.
- Place all items on the front curb by 7:00 am on Monday according to Zone
- Furniture and appliances are accepted, not to exceed 12 cubic yards.
- Tree trimmings, branches and shrubs should be cut and placed in bundles or piles for hand collection, not to exceed 12 cubic yard limit.
- Tree trimmings, branches and shrubs too large for hand collection requires that a claw truck be dispatched, not to exceed 12 cubic yard limit.
Additional charges may apply for exceeding the 12 cubic yard limit and/or only the 12 cubic yards will be accepted and the overage will remain for special collection to be scheduled by homeowner.
