Collection Times & Area
Please be sure that all trash is securely tied in bags and out to be picked up by 7:00 a.m. on your day of service (return trips are subject to an extra charge).
Please be sure to enclose all trash in plastic bags (13 gallon or larger, please) or in a sealed box.
You may put out bags only, your own containers, or you may purchase a new 95 gallon polycart at a cost of $90.00 (tax and delivery included). The polycart can be delivered on the next day of pickup after payment is received.
Any container and/or refuse should in all cases be placed at a location readily accessible to the collector. Please be sure there are no obstructing vehicles, lawn equipment or other items in the path of the containers.
Collectors will not enter a yard that contains loose dogs, a gated area, a carport or garage.
Preparing Refuse For Collection
Since we use good, old-fashioned manpower to collect the bags out of your container(s), please ensure that each bagged item weighs no more than 35 lbs. To minimize the likelihood of bags tearing, please be especially mindful of weight limits when disposing of paper, books, magazines, dirt, weeds, lawn clippings, etc.
Large and/or heavy items do not require enclosure and may be placed next to your container. You must call ahead if you have any items heavy or bulky (see weight limits above), or if you are going to have additional items other than your regular weekly household trash or lawn trimmings. These items are subject to an additional charge. Empty boxes must be broken down, flattened, and bundled together or, if filled with packing material, must be sealed with tape.
Dead animals, whether intact or not, must be properly encased in a non-porous bag or container, and weigh no more than 50 lbs. For sanitary reasons, pet feces should be sealed/tied in double plastic bags.
To prevent littering the streets, Styrofoam packing materials (i.e., peanuts, balls, blocks, etc.) must be enclosed in a securely tied bag or placed inside a taped up box or they will not be picked up. You may also return these items to a local mailing -packaging center for recycling.
All lawn clippings should be contained in either the paper “green bags” or 2 mil. plastic bags, and weigh no more than 35 lbs. per bag. Please limit your lawn trimmings to three (3) bags per week. Excessive grass, leaves and lawn clippings are subject to an extra charge. Please do not allow any landscaping service to leave lawn clippings from another address at your stop.
Unless prior notice is received, the quantity of limbs and/or brush picked up will be at the driver’s discretion. Limbs and brush must be bundled together. Limbs must be 48″ or less in length, in bundles no larger than 4 inches in diameter, and no heavier than 35 lbs. per bundle. To minimize the likelihood of bags tearing, please be especially mindful of weight limits when disposing of rocks, dirt, weed, etc.
Barnes WDS will remove excessive or non-bundled brush for an extra charge.
Please note that all bulk pickup services require advanced notice and must follow these guidelines.
Please label any items that are not obvious as refuse.
Bulk items may include furniture, appliances, brush or landscaping, multiple boxes, lawn equipment, light remodeling or carpentry debris (from projects done by the homeowner only), limited to two (2) cubic yards per collection (approximately the size of a sofa).
Please note that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency prohibits the disposal of “white goods” containing chlorofluorcarbon refrigerants (“CFCs” – freon) such as refrigerators, freezers, and air conditioners. These items will not be collected without a certificate of removal of the CFCs and these will be a $35.00 charge for collection.
For public health and safety reasons, the following items will not be collected (including but not limited to): hazardous waste, roofing material, construction or remodeling debris done by a contractor, dirt, rock, steel shavings, concrete, hot ashes, automotive parts, tires, batteries, liquid paint, motor oil, solvents, pool chemicals, radioactive materials, pathogens, toxic waste, acidic waste, or volatile material. In addition, any stable matter with great weight, or volume in excess of two (2) cubic yards (approximately 6’x6’x3′, or the area of a full size sofa) must be scheduled as a “special collection.”
Special Collection Arrangements
We can arrange to pick up large quantities for our customers; however, there will be an extra charge and the collection may need to be scheduled on a different day from your usual weekly pick up.
For a large volume pick up, you must call Barnes WDS directly at 972-734-3333 to schedule a “special collection”. A representative will come out to your site, review your disposables, and quote a price based on the volume and/or estimated weight.
Barnes WDS observes the following holidays. If your regular day of collection falls on OR after a weekday holiday, service will be delayed one day for that week only. Friday routes will be collected on Saturday. Please note that we do not skip service for any holidays other than those listed below:
4th of July
Our basic monthly rate is for normal (up to 120 gallons) single household waste only (businesses, day cares, school, etc. are subject to a higher rate).
Please do not share your collection days with friends or neighbors.
To avoid suspension of service, payment must reach our office by the 20th of each month. We only require one month’s payment at a time, however, we gladly accept advance payment in any increments you choose.
Barnes WDS route personnel are not responsible for trash torn up by animals, and will not collect trash if there is a menacing or threatening animal guarding your trash or in your container(s).
Please read any information tags left on your door, refuse container, bulky item or yard waste that has been set out for collection. These tags communicate problems with set out, changes in service, and other important information. If you receive a tag and need clarification of the information, please call Barnes WDS.
