The City of Arlington encourages residents to participate in the annual free leaf recycling program. Get your friends, family and neighbors to join in!

This united effort helps clear our neighborhoods of leaves, and it keeps leaves out of the landfill. These leaves will be mulched, and this mulch will be free to Arlington residents in the spring (based on availability.)

The leaf recycling program starts Nov. 14, 2022, and runs through Jan. 16, 2023. Leaf recycling drop-off sites are located throughout the city:

  • Arlington Landfill: 800 Mosier Valley Road
  • UTA Baseball parking lot on Mitchell St., east of Fielder Road
  • S.J. Stovall Park: 2800 W. Sublett Road
  • Bowman Springs Park: 7003 W. Poly Webb Road
  • Veterans Park: Second parking lot/Spanish Trail entrance - 3600 W. Arkansas Lane
  • Randol Mill Park: 1901 W Randol Mill Road
  • Cravens Park, 400 Cravens Park Drive

Here are some rules for leaf drop-off:

  • Leaves must be bagged. Paper or compostable lawn bags are preferred but plastic bags will also be accepted.
  • Leaves must come from residential households.
  •  These leaf drop-off sites are for Arlington residents only.
  •  If a dumpster at the drop-off site is full, please neatly stack bags next to the dumpster.
  •  Dumpsters are collected on Mondays and Fridays. If you notice a dumpster is overflowing, please email [email protected] to report it.
  •  Contractors who rake and bag residential leaves can take these bags to the Arlington Landfill free of charge during these dates. For information about the landfill, call 817-354-2300.

Curbside Leaf Collection

Leaves left at the curb will be collected at a rate of six 33-gallon garbage bags per collection day until all leaves have been collected. Household trash collection will take priority over leaves.

If your home or neighborhood is not serviced by 7 p.m. on a scheduled collection day, please call Republic Services at 817-317-2000 to report a missed collection.

As a reminder, leaves make a wonderful additional to your at-home compost bins. You can add beneficial carbon to your lawn by mowing leaves back into your yard. For more information on composting at home, please visit our compost website.

Taking part in this voluntary program and inspiring others to do the same is a great way to help reduce landfill waste and promote environmental stewardship.
The leaf recycling program starts Nov. 14, 2022, and runs through Jan. 16, 2023.
