Melshire Estates Go GreenMelshire’s OneDay is Tuesday!

In an effort to save landfill space, protect air quality and preserve our environment, Dallas changed garbage & recycling collection to the same day, one day a week!   

Nearly all paper, plastic, glass & metal items can be recycled. This means almost half of the items you usually throw away can be recycled using the Big Blue recycling roll cart. Don’t have a blue recycling cart yet? Request one here!

If you fill the recycling cart, you can use the blue or clear translucent bags and put the bags next to your blue cartfor recycling pickup.

If for some reason you find that you’d like to have another garbage roll cart, just call 3-1-1 or visit to order another one. Each additional garbage roll cart costs $11.86 per month.

Melshire’s bulk trash pickup is the 4th week of the month. Bulk trash can be placed out the Thursday before pickup.
