The storm that passed through our city on Wednesday, June 20, produced approximately 50 mph winds causing substantial damage to many trees. The individual homeowner is responsible for removal of trees and limbs on their property. We have coordinated with Waste Management for placement of three roll-off dumpsters for debris removal. These dumpsters will be placed at the Southwood Well Lot located at 5001 Village Parkway. The dumpsters will be delivered on Friday, June 22 and removed on Tuesday, June 26.
If a resident chooses to wait for Monday’s yard waste pickup, here are the details from Waste Management:
Residents are allowed up to 20 bundles and bags of yard waste. Bags must be brown paper kraft bags. Bundles must be no longer than 4 ft and no heavier than 35 lbs in weight. This is collected on Mondays. Should residents have more material than allowed for the Monday Yard Waste collection:
- Residents are allowed a once per month trip to the DFW landfill for disposal of up to 3 cubic yards of material (one level standard pickup truck bed). Take your driver’s license and a current water bill with the same address to confirm residency. Also, by Texas State law, all materials must be tarped.
- Residents can request a pay pile. Home.wm.com/highland-village under the Bulky Collection tab.
Residents can take material to the City provided roll-off dumpster located at 5001 Village Parkway (Southwood Well Lot)
If residents leave out more materials than specified, Waste Management will leave a tag notification of excess materials. Waste Management will collect the excess on the next Monday. If residents choose to place the material out to be serviced with their garbage, Waste Management asks that it be bagged or in a container and limited to ten bags/containers as per the residential service agreement.
