ALTHOUGH BULK & BRUSH PICK UP BEGINS AT 7:00 A.M. ON MONDAYS IT MAY TAKE UP TO 3 DAYS FOR YOUR ITEMS TO BE REMOVED FROM THE CURB. THE BULK & BRUSH VOLUME VARIES WITH THE SEASONS WHICH MAKES SPECIFIC COLLECTION TIMEFRAMES UNPREDICTABLE.

We appreciate your patience; however if you feel you followed all of the Bulk & Brush guidelines to allow successful pickup and it was not completed please contact us at the end of the 3rd day (Wednesday) to report issues at PublicWorksInfo@LittleElm.org or 972-377-5556 or you may always contact CWD directly at 972-392-9300 Ext. 2.
Bulk Legend.jpg
FIRST & FOREMOST…
UNDERSTANDING THE LEGEND ABOVE.
  1. Bulk & Brush begins on the first FULL week of each month. Simply put if the 1st day of the month does not fall on Saturday, Sunday or Monday it is NOT considered a full week and services will not run (those days are shaded in red.)
  2. Bulk Routes are driven by supervisors at 7 a.m. on Mondays at which point they make a note on a map so that their crews are aware of all pickup locations. Hence, if your items are not curbside by 7 a.m. your address is not marked for pickup.
  3. The key to finding your weeks of Bulk & Brush service is to find your corresponding Trash & Recycling service day. Residents with a Monday or Tuesday Trash & Recycling day get a 1st (full week) & 3rd week pickup beginning at 7 a.m. on Mondays. Residents with a Wednesday, Thursday & Friday Trash day are serviced on the 2nd & 4th week of each month. Pickup always begins on Mondays and is completed by the end of the day Wednesday.
