Bulk and Brush Pick-Up

Customers receive weekly, curbside bulk trash and brush collection on each trash pick-up day. Bulk items must be no larger than 3' x 3' x 12'. Acceptable items include, but are not limited to, yard waste, appliances, furniture, and other household items such as water heaters.

Appliances such as refrigerators, freezers, and air conditioners that contain Freon, PCB, or other liquid or gaseous compounds must have that product removed by a certified technician who places a special tag on the item prior to collection. 

Hazardous or electronic waste will not be collected with regular bulk trash, this includes items like paint, chemicals, florescent bulbs, batteries, and tires. For upcoming events on disposing these items, visit the Keep Bedford Beautiful webpage and look for the next “Chunk Your Junk” or “Crud Cruiser” event. For more information, email Customer Service at customerservice@bedfordtx.gov.

For more information, please visit the household hazardous waste and electronic waste webpages.

Larger Bulk Items 

Bulk items that exceed the size allotment can be collected by calling Republic Customer Service at 817-317-2000 to schedule an extra pick-up. Payments for special pick-ups should be made to Republic Services directly.

Brush Guidelines

Brush must be cut in lengths not to exceed four-feet, bundled and tied, weighing no more than 50 pounds per bundle. You may place up to four cubic yards of brush or bulk at the curb per week.  An example of this would be thirty 30-33 gallon size trash bags full of yard waste (i.e., grass and leaves) or twenty 55-60 gallon bags. 

If you have yard waste that exceeds these limits you can put out a portion of it over several weeks for removal or contact Republic Services directly to schedule a quote for a special pick-up at 817-317-2000.
