Duncanville City Council Amends Solid Waste Ordinance After Feedback from Residents

DeSoto, TX - At the December 17, 2019 City Council meeting, the Duncanville City Council amended the Solid Waste ordinance after receiving input from residents.

The changes primarily affect brush and bulk collection. Residents will see a $2.31 increase per month for solid waste services on utility bills starting in January. For more information, please visit www.duncanville.com/trash or call the Utilities Division at 972-780-4900.

In July 2019 the City Council approved a new contract with Republic Services that reduced the quantity and frequency of bulk and brush pick up, noting that not all residents use the service regularly and this was an area to realize cost savings. Many residents voiced concerns over the changes to collection and indicated a desire to increase service, regardless of the financial impact.
