Hey Nolanville! Did you know that the trash company that services the City (TDS) has a special Wednesday route? The route is designated for scheduled* bulk pick-ups and they offer each home one bulky pick up a year!
What does that mean you may be asking yourself? It means that the 1980’s couch that you’ve been hiding in your garage (you know, just in case it comes back in style) can come out and finally go away!
It is important to know there are a few rules and conditions that TDS outlines for what they will and will not pick up. Here are a few quick facts for a successful bulk pick up:
They will pick up three (3) cubic yards per bulky pickup. This is roughly about the size of three (3) washers’ side-by-side. Loads larger than this can be collected but at an additional cost
Items should be five feet away from mailboxes, cars, utility lines, and other personal items, and should be out no later than 6 A.M. on the day of pick-up.
Items TDS WILL pick up:
Appliances (freon removed)
Drained Water Heaters
Wood (without nails)
Tubs (fiberglass only)
Mattress/Box springs (special terms may apply and may require further confirmation from TDS at time of scheduling)
Items TDS WILL NOT pick up:
Concrete or Bricks (Construction materials in general)
Broken Glass or Sheet Glass
Soil. Dirt. Sand
If you have made it this far into the article you have probably asked yourself two questions.
What in my house should I finally get rid of first (definitely the 80's couch)?
How do I schedule my first pick up?
Scheduling a pick-up is almost as easy as accumulating the bulk to begin with. You can download the City application, ‘My Nolanville’ located for free in both the Apple and Google application stores, and request a bulk pick up. You can also go online here: https://www.nolanvilletx.gov/page/Bulk%20Pick%20Up and fill out the quick and easy form. Last but not least, you can call City Hall at 254-698-6335 Extension 4 and we can get you scheduled.
Don’t have bulk trash but have a brush (limbs, sticks, leaves) pick up? No worries, we’ve got you covered there, too! Follow the same steps above and just notate that this is for BRUSH and one of our public works crew members will schedule a time to pick up your brush. Please be descriptive in the amount and type of brush you are requesting for removal (you can even send us a photo) so we can estimate the crew and materials to haul away the brush. Please note, we only offer pick up service for Brush. We cannot cut or break down limbs or branches from trees.
