Debris clean-up from last week's storms continues this week with street-side pickup. The drop-off site at Five Star is now closed. The following resources remain available to residents:
- Large storm debris will be collected street-side by a grappler truck starting Tuesday, June 18, at designated residential addresses. Tree limbs and other over-sized items must be cut to 20 feet or less. Please place street-side on the curb without blocking sidewalks.
- Regular green waste pickup occurs every Monday. Please cut and bundle tree limbs to 5 feet or less so they will fit in the truck. More information on regular green waste collection is available online.
- Free landfill passes are also available to residents at the Customer Service counter inside City Hall, 6800 Main St. Individuals requesting a landfill pass must show a valid photo ID and/or utility bill indicating residency in The Colony. Identification and landfill pass must be presented upon entry at the Camelot Landfill in Lewisville. More information about Landfill Passes is available online.

As residents begin to undertake repairs, also please keep in mind that the City’s Community Image Department has launched a new tool-lending program called The Colony Cares, in which residents may check out a variety of common home improvement tools for use on their property – FREE of charge. Tools include, but are not limited to: gas-powered lawn mowers; weed trimmers; blowers; shovels; ladders; pruning shears; hedge trimmers; and safety gear. For more info, visit the program's website or contact Danny Dill at 972-624-3160.
