Weather Related Service Delays

All Garland residents and businesses should be aware that during inclement weather, brush & bulky goods collection services and commercial collection services may be delayed due to the conditions at the C.M. Hinton Jr. Regional Landfill. Please call us at 972-205-3500 to confirm if your routes have been impacted.

Inclement Weather

During and immediately after rain events, the C.M. Hinton Jr. Regional Landfill restricts access to the working face to vehicles with 4-wheel drive only. Please call the landfill at 972-205-3670 to verify if you can dump.

During the winter months, there are times when weather conditions are such that garbage cannot be safely collected. Even when the roads appear safe, there are many secondary roads that are not passable for collection trucks.

We consider the safety of our employees and the general public to be the primary consideration when evaluating whether to provide solid waste collection services during a potentially hazardous weather/storm event. Services may be delayed or canceled.

Announcements about large service delays or cancellations are updated here, on the Environmental Waste Service News Flash page, on the City of Garland News Flash page, social media channels, via the Alerts system and Garland E-News.
