The average person throws away 68lbs of clothing per year. Clothing and Housewares account for approximately 10% of the municipal waste stream. 85% of clothing does not get recycled or donated, it gets trashed. Go to www.SimpleRecycling.com to request your orange bags for curbside pickup or come see us at the Utility Billing office at 100 W. Eldorado Parkway, Town Hall to grab some for yourself.
For missed service, please call customer service (972) 392-9300 ext. 2.
My cart has an orange tag on it, what does that mean? Please see our Utility Billing FAQ page for the answer to this question and many more you may have.
All 95 gallon trash and recycling carts are required to be stored behind the front building line of your home, not curbside. Residents may place carts out by the street on the day before service after 7:00 pm. Carts must be removed from curbside by 7:00 am the day after services. Your homeowners association may have a more stringent requirement to place carts out of view.
Trash outside the cart will not be picked up. The cart should be placed at the edge of the street with the lid closed and 4 feet of clearance space on either side of the cart. Please place the cart handle facing your house, and within 3 feet of the curb. Overloaded carts will not be serviced.
