Brush & Bulky Collection Service

Once a week, Bryan residents can, at no cost, dispose of large items such as furniture, appliances and large tree branches by utilizing our Brush & Bulky Service.  There are, however, guidelines that must be followed:

  • Place items at a curbside location thatís easily accessible to the collection vehicle.  Do so anytime 48 hours before, and up to 7 a.m. on the scheduled day of collection. (Click here to view the Waste Collection Map Service)
  • Heavy trash collection is limited to residential and general maintenance activities performed on vacant lots meeting the requirements of 150í x 150í.
  • A maximum of 23 cubic yards of materials are allotted to each resident per week. Items exceeding this allotted amount may be collected at an additional fee or transported by the generator to the landfill for disposal.
  • No household chemical will be collected at the curb.  In fact, the homeowner is subject to a citation if a chemical is left curbside.
  • Appliances containing refrigerant must be tagged to certify that a qualified technician has removed the refrigerant, or else a $20 environmental impact fee will be assessed to the residentís utility bill. To protect small children and infants, we ask residents disposing of refrigerators to properly secure doors with duct tape or rope.
  • Set bulky waste and green waste (limbs, branches, etc.)  in separate piles for collection.

Please do not place items:

  • Under low overhead electric wires, cablings, signs or mailboxes
  • Stacked next to fences, posts, atop water or gas meters, gas meters, fire hydrants or other utility components.
  • Materials should not be placed in the street, on the sidewalk or other right-of-way in a manner that interferes with pedestrian or vehicle traffic.

The following items will not be collected for disposal through Brush & Bulky Service:

  • Unused construction and demolition materials from projects like landscaping, remodeling, sidewalk and driveways improvements, and large-scale fence construction and repair.
  • Concrete, brick or rock
  • Household garbage

Proper use of our curbside collection takes very little time and effort, but it goes a long way toward keeping the city clean.  For assistance in determining your propertyís Brush & Bulky Service collection point, please contact the call center at (979) 209-5900 or email Public Works Call Center .
