Cleanup is underway after storms brought down trees and limbs in some Arlington neighborhoods Sunday evening.

Public Works and Transportation crews have been out in full force since last night, working to remove debris. The department will have crews available to assist with this effort, and residents can call 817-459-5434 for help.

City crews will handle cleanup for debris in public areas, including the right-of-way.

If there is debris on your property:

  • Tree limbs and fence panels will be picked up curbside on regular trash collection days at a rate of one cubic yard per service day until everything has been collected.
  • Tree limbs and fence panels need to be cut into 4-foot or smaller sections and placed into bundles weighing no more than 50 lbs.
  • Republic Services will pick up storm debris at a rate of 1 cubic yard per collection day and will continue to pick up as much as possible on subsequent collection days until all debris is gone.
  • Shingles cannot be collected at the curb. If you are having your roof repaired, it is the responsibility of the contractor to haul and dispose of roofing shingles. You may also haul these directly to the Arlington landfill for free by using one of your two annual landfill coupons. You can also use your coupons to take debris straight to the Arlington landfill (800 Mosier Valley Road, Euless.) Please call the Action Center at 817-459-6777 before visiting the landfill to ensure your drivers license is correctly linked to your water bill account to prevent any issues redeeming your coupons at the scale house.
  • For larger jobs, residents can contact Republic Services directly at 817-317-2000 to schedule a chipper service. Please be advised there is a fee for this service.
  • Contractors should haul debris directly to the Arlington Landfill.
