Please ensure the trash cart and the recycle cart are three feet away from obstacles including mailboxes. Position the carts with the wheels toward the street. All trash must be placed in bags inside of the grey 95 gallon trash cart. All recyclables must be placed inside the blue 95 gallon trash cart.

Bulky waste and brush will be collected on the regular trash day. You are limited to one cubic yard of bulky waste and loose brush per collection. Tied and bundled brush may be set out in unlimited quantities. If you have a load that exceeds the acceptable limit and you want it picked up all at one time, contact CWD at 972-392-9300, option 2 for a price quote. Removal of large items such as furniture, stoves, and water heaters, heating units and any other appliances or similar bulky items from residential properties will normally occur on the same day as your weekly scheduled pickup. Refrigerators, freezers, and air conditional units will only be picked up if the resident supplies a certificate from a certified technician that CFCs (chlorinated fluorocarbons) have been properly removed.
Determining if your item is recyclable is easy. On the label there should be a circle of arrows. This circle should also contain a number. Numbers 1 through 5 and number 7 are acceptable. Plastics that have number 6 and Styrofoam should NOT be placed in the recycle bin for pickup.
Acceptable Recycle Items are:
Chipboard (cereal boxes, soda boxes, etc)

Aerobic Septic System Information
What Type of Chlorine: When disinfection of aerobic system treated wastewater effluent is required and you are using chlorine tablets, it is important that you use a chlorine tablet that is made from calcium hypochlorite and is certified for wastewater disinfection by EPA. They are very reactive and will kill 99% of the bacteria present in the effluent within 10 minutes. Follow all warning and precaution statements of the chlorine tablet manufacturer to protect yourself and the system equipment.
Warning: DO NOT use swimming pool chlorine tablets in your disinfection system. The chlorine in these tablets are made from trichlorisocyanuric acid. Swimming pool tablets dissolve more slowly than calcium hypochlorite and do not thoroughly disinfect the effluent. Additionally, there is a danger of explosion using swimming pool tablets since the tablets will release an explosive gas called nitrogen chloride due to the fact that they are not totally immersed in water at all times while in use. They are not approved by EPA for wastewater effluent disinfection.
