Service Guidelines 
The five North Texas Municipal Water District Solid Waste member cities (Allen, Frisco, McKinney, Plano and Richardson) include weekly residential landscape or yard trimming collection as part of their monthly service. Additionally, twice a month free dumps at the Custer Road Grind Site are designed to accommodate periodic volumes from seasonal pruning or replacements by resident that exceed their weekly collection. It is not a service passed on to or used by commercial businesses or contractors for the resident's convenience.

Member City Residential Loads
Any landscape and/or yard trimming loads delivered in a personal vehicle and/or trailer of a member city resident (the vehicle and/or trailer is titled or insured in name matching the driver's license and city utility bill) will not be charged the associated per yard tipping fee, unless they dump more than twice in any given month.

Commercial or Contractor Loads
All landscape and/or yard trimming loads delivered in commercial or contractor vehicles and/or trailers (includes the business name on either or both truck and/or trailer) are charged the associated per yard tipping fee.

Suspected Commercial or Contractor Loads
Any landscape and/or yard trimming loads delivered in a perceived commercial or contractor vehicle and trailer (does not include the business name on the trailer but designed/built equipped with related equipment (i.e. mowers, weed eater, edger's and/or irrigation)) will be charged the associated per yard tipping fee.

Reasonable Exception

  • If the owner of the vehicle and/or trailer is a member city resident, which is defined by the vehicle and/or trailer is titled or insured in name matching the driver's license and city utility bill, they are allowed to dump twice a month free of charge.
  • If volume of material dumped equates to or exceeds a total of 15 cubic yards per month for two consecutive months, it is determined and communicated to the vehicle owner all future volumes will be charged.
