Free Trash Day Suspension
Due to TxDoT construction of State Highway 121 around the North Texas Municipal Water District's 121 RDF landfill in Melissa, Public Works is suspending the monthly First Saturday Citizen Trash Drop-Off Day beginning August 2018. Please check this website for future updates. We apologize for any inconvenience. The landfill will still accept trash from citizens willing to pay. For rate information, visit the NTMWD website.
County Recycle Bins
The current county recycling program has proven to be ineffective, producing more waste and contamination issues than it solves, and does not address the recycling needs of our residents We are therefore discontinuing the program effective October 1, 2018. Other recycling resources may be available at www.timetorecycle.com
Change in Free Trash Day Policy
Beginning October 1, 2017, the dumping of roofing shingles will no longer be free of charge at the monthly free trash days. Instead, a $150 surcharge plus a fee based on the weight of the shingles will be charged to anyone dropping off roofing shingles.
This policy change is offset the problem that roofing shingles are not biodegradable.
Asphalt Road Projects
Public Works staff currently estimates a delay of 12 to 18 month for Asphalt Road Projects given the size and scope or weather related damage. We humbly seek your patience as we progress through these challenges and wish to assure the citizens that our commitment to safety is unwavering. We encourage residents to report any conditions that compromise safety or create a dangerous situation. Citizens can call the Public Works office at 972-548-3700 or log a service request here on our website to report an issue.
We apologize for the inconvenience and pledge that the County will resume road paving projects as soon as practical. In the meantime, be sure to check the
County Road Paving Program webpage for any updates.
