The City of Grand Prairie provides garbage collection to each residence twice a week. Recycling collection is on one of your regular garbage days. Separate trucks pick up garbage and recycling. All garbage and recycling must be set out by 7 a.m. on your scheduled collection day but no earlier than 8 p.m. the night before your collection day.

Use any color plastic bag for garbage except blue or red; blue bags are used for recyclables only and will not be collected if they contain trash. Do not put garbage in trash cans or any container except plastic bags. Containers will be taken with garbage. For recycling collection either use an 18-gallon recycling bin or blue bags.

Bagged leaves and shrubs will be collected with household garbage but not grass clippings. The City of Grand Prairie also operates a Large Brush Pickup Program year round on a rotation basis from north to south week by week and provides curbside pickup of brush that is not practical or eligible for collection by the city’s weekly garbage collection. Residents receive one free brush pickup each month up to 5 cubic yards. Visit www.gptx.org/streets or call 972-237-8525 for more information.

Broken Glass and Needles
Nobody likes to get cut with broken glass or stuck with a needle and neither do our friendly garbage collectors and landfill employees. In order to prevent unpleasant accidents, please follow these easy steps before setting your garbage at the curb:

  1. Place any needles in an empty laundry detergent jug or other container before disposal.
  2. Please wrap any broken mirror glass in newspaper and tape before placing in a garbage bag or in a box marked "broken mirror."
  3. Please place any broken bottles or jars in a cardboard box clearly marked "broken glass."
