Bulky Trash

Items that CAN be placed on the curb:
Large limbs, shrubbery, bagged leaves (in sealed bags with a maximum 50 gallon capacity), furniture, appliances, mattresses and box springs.
Items that CAN NOT be placed on the curb:
Bagged grass clippings, new construction or remodeling materials such as lumber or roofing materials, paint, and chemicals.
Under new city codes, items out early and can result in an immediate citation and $175 fine - no warning will be issued. You may also be cited if you place items where they block any part of the road or sidewalk, or if you place the bulk items in the alley. These additional citations will run between $50 and $2000 each. If your sidewalk is next to the street, place the items on your lawn as close to the sidewalk as possible.If you want to see the city codes, follow this link http://www.dallascityhall.com/dallas/eng/html/code_compliance_manual.html and then click the topic placement of bulky trash or oversized brush.
