Delays Continue For Brush/bulky Waste And Recycling Collections In Irving

he City of Irving Solid Waste Services Department continues to experience a staffing shortage that impacts recycling, brush and bulky collection services. Irving has proactively recruited for months to fill the necessary positions for solid waste collection services, and the staffing situation has improved. However, several positions remain open, and surges in service demands do impact day-to-day operations. The hard-working Solid Waste Services employees are working to keep up with the demand.

As a result, residents will continue to experience collection delays. Trash collection is prioritized, which delays collection of recycling and brush and bulky collections when demand surges. If recycling is not collected on its scheduled collection day, residents should leave blue recycling bags at the curb for collection on the following schedule:

Regular Scheduled Recycling Collection Day Alternative Scheduled Recycling Collection Day
Monday Wednesday
Tuesday Wednesday
Thursday Saturday
Friday Saturday

If brush/bulky is not collected on its scheduled collection day, it will be collected as soon as staffing levels allow.


The city understands that many residents may be impacted the waste left at the curb. If brush/bulky collection is delayed, residents are encouraged to:

  • Drop off brush and bulky waste materials and recycling at the Hunter Ferrell Landfill, 110 E. Hunter Ferrell Road
    • Disposal drop-off times are 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday. 
    • Drop-off availability is for residents only, and individuals are required to show proof of residency.

The city recognizes that this is not an ideal solution, but would rather be transparent about the issue. The City of Irving thanks residents for their patience and understanding while the department works to resume normal operations as soon as possible.

For questions, call (972) 721-8059. Visit the Recycling Drop-Off Station and Brush and Bulky Waste Collection pages for details.
