According to the City of Dallas, collections are delayed by one day beginning on Tuesday, May 28, citing impacts of inclement weather. Wednesday routes are expected to be collected Thursday, and Friday routes are expected to be collected on Saturday. 

Some neighbors may have their collection delayed further, however, with downed trees blocking alleys preventing access by sanitation crews. Residents whose alleys are blocked by debris are encouraged to call 311 and report any blockage. 

Storm debris may be placed on the curb for bulk pickup, and the City of Dallas Department of Sanitation Services is asking residents to sort debris into two piles: one for vegetative debris such as tree limbs, and another for non-vegetative debris such as building materials. 

Up to 20-cubic yards of Debris left on curbs will be collected free-of-charge. Any additional debris will be collected at a rate of $60 per five cubic yards. Dallas residents may self-haul waste to City of Dallas transfer stations without charge. The Northeast Transfer Station on Fair Oaks Ave. is open Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. and on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
