Since 2002, Barnes WDS has been collecting trash for all residents within the city limits of Lucas. The charge for this service will be added to your monthly water bill, or if your water is provided by another source, in a separate bill sent from the City. To avoid any confusion or problems with collection, please read the following guidelines and be sure to share this information with others in your household.
This service level consists of trash collection from containers equivalent to one (1) 96-gallon polycart plus 2-3 kitchen-sized bags each week or up to 120 gallons. Upon request, each residence will be supplied with (1) 96-gallon polycart at no charge.
Expanded Service consists of double the amount of trash collected each week or up to 240 gallons.
Expanded Service does not change the collection frequency or the amount of included bulky items collected. Residents would need to inform the City or BWD, of the request for Expanded service. If additional container(s) are needed, you may request an additional 96-gallon polycart directly from BWD OR you may use any type of container you choose. You will be billed on your water bill whichever rate is appropriate for the amount being collected at your residence each week.
BWD shall have no obligation to collect trash, garbage or refuse with regard to amount in excess of 120 gallons from residents opting for basic service, or 240 gallons from residents opting for expanded service.
