Update on FCC Trash Service

FCC garbage truck, text reads COVID-19 Update

In light of the announcement of two confirmed positive COVID-19 cases in Rowlett, FCC is enhancing efforts to protect those providing trash service. FCC will begin enforcing bagged items in the trash on Thursday March 26, 2020, rather than the previously communicated March 30 date. This requirement currently only applies to items in your garbage poly cart, items in the recycle poly cart should remain unbagged (although FCC has indicated this may change).  See details below…

 👉Beginning March 26, 2020, all items in the garbage poly carts must be in closed bags or FCC will NOT service the cart. This keeps items from escaping the carts and helps FCC staff (and the neighborhood!) practice safe COVID-19 hygiene protocols. And yes, you may use plastic grocery bags for this purpose if you do not have trash bags.

 👉If at all possible, please postpone your tree trimming and the projects that generate brush or bulk pickup items. 

 👉Trash bags of grass and leaves are not considered bulk trash, and will not be collected by the bulk truck. This is not new information - just a gentle reminder. 

 👉If your items regularly do not all fit in one cart, please request a second cart by calling the Utility Billing department (972-412-6105). The monthly fee for each additional cart is $11.74.

 Thank you for helping our FCC friends stay safe and for doing your part to keep our neighborhoods clean and litter free!
