Brush and Bulky Trash Collection
Brush and bulky collection guidelines
- Place items at a curbside location that’s easily accessible to the collection vehicle.
- Place items in this location by 7 a.m. on your scheduled collection day. You may place brush and bulky items curbside beginning 48 hours before your scheduled collection day.
- Brush and bulky waste must be placed at least five feet from fixed objects, including buildings, fences, posts, fire hydrants, parked vehicles and utility meters. Items placed closer than five feet from fixed objects will not be collected.
- Customers must separate brush from bulky waste. Set bulky waste in one pile, and set green waste (brush, limbs, branches, etc.) in a separate pile.
- Putrescible waste (food waste) and household garbage will not be collected by this service.
- Waste may not be placed under tree branches or overhead wires. Items placed in this manner will not be collected. Customers unable to place brush and bulky waste in an appropriate location should contact the request brush and bulky service online or call (979) 209-5900 for collection.
- Items set for collection may not obstruct pedestrian or vehicle traffic and must be maintained to prevent windblown litter. Items may not be placed for collection on a public street, sidewalk, or right-of-way.
- Brush must be cut into sections no longer than eight feet.
- • A maximum of 22 cubic yards or one truck load of materials for each residence are allowed each week. Items exceeding this allotted amount may be collected at an additional fee, or the resident may transport the items to the Twin Oaks Landfill themselves.
Refrigerators, freezers, air conditioners
Customers with appliances containing chlorofluorocarbons (air conditioners, refrigerators, freezers) will be charged for the removal and certification of the evacuation of all chlorofluorocarbons from each unit, even if empty, unless pre-certified in accordance with applicable law prior to collection.
Residents may take these types of appliances directly to the Twin Oaks Landfill for disposal and recycling.
- No household chemicals will be collected at the curb. In fact, a homeowner is subject to a citation if a chemical is left curbside.
- 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
- For sites we are unable to service, Solid Waste staff members will leave a door hanger notice at the front door explaining why the items were left behind.
- If items are Household Hazardous Waste items, Solid Waste staff members will place an orange sticker on items we are unable to collect.
