SH26 Phase III Beautification Project Begins
SH26 main street groundbreaking public works
The final phase of the City's SH26 beautification project has begun! The construction contract for the Gateway Project (tower construction in three locations) was awarded to C. Green Scaping with a duration of 365 days. A notice to proceed was issued effective November 1 and a groundbreaking ceremony was held on November 16. The contractor plans to start work at the Main Street/SH26 location.

You may have already noticed green fencing going up on a piece of property just south of Chick-fil-A, as this will serve as the primary staging area for the contractor. The work at the Main Street/SH26 intersection will involve construction of towers at the NW and SW corners. Once those towers are constructed, the contractor will then move south to work on the Creekside tower near Little Bear Creek. After that, work will return to Main Street to complete certain improvements on the NW and SE corners. The last element to be constructed will be at the Northern Gateway (John McCain/SH26).

Cease the Grease, Free Oil & Grease Disposal for Residents
Cease the Grease public works
Nov. 22 - Jan. 10, Mon. - Fri.
7:30 - 11:00 a.m. & 12:45 - 4:15 p.m.
Colleyville Public Works
1601 Hall-Johnson

The holidays, with their fried turkeys, buttery foods, and gravy, can be hard on your diet and on pipes and sewer systems. When fats, oils, and grease are washed down the drain, they stick to the inside of pipes, hardening and building up until they cause clogs and sewer backups. This can cause sewage overflow into homes, streets, and local waterways. Whether the repairs are in your home or in the street, it can be costly and inconvenient. If the sewer overflows, city crews have to shut down streets, tying up traffic and increasing expenses for both residents and the city.

Instead of washing your grease down the drain, participate in the 2021 Holiday Grease Roundup and recycle it for free! The City of Colleyville is partnering with the North Texas Municipal Water District, the North Central Texas Council of Governments, the Wastewater and the Treatment Education Roundtable, and American BioSource to help protect sewer systems and the environment by providing a drop-off location to collect your holiday grease. The collected cooking oil and grease will be recycled into biodiesel or biogas, which reduces landfill waste and produces an alternative fuel that is clean and green.

Cooking grease and oil will be collected at the Colleyville Public Works facility located at 1601 Hall-Johnson Road from Monday, November 22 through Monday, January 10. Collection hours are 7:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. and 12:45 p.m. to 4:15 p.m., Monday through Friday. There will be no collections on weekends or City holidays.
Expanded Leaf Recycling Program Continues This Saturday

Remaining Collection Days:
November 20

December 11
December 18
January 8

The special leaf recycling days continue tomorrow! Special leaf and Christmas tree recycling collections have returned this winter with a few changes. Community Waste Disposal (CWD), Colleyville's trash and recycling provider, will run special collection routes to recycle bagged leaves. This year's program was expanded to six collection days, up from four days last year. The special collection days are Saturday, Nov. 13, Nov. 20, Dec. 4, Dec. 11, Dec. 18, and Jan. 8 with collections beginning at 8am. CWD will also collect and recycle Christmas trees on the January special collection day.

To participate, residents just need to set out leaves on the designated days. New for 2021, CWD will recycle leaves in any bag; either paper lawn craft bag or plastic bag. If leaf bags are set out prior to the Saturday collections, residents are asked to place leaf bags separately from household trash. Regular rear-load garbage trucks will be used for these special collection days. With that in mind, residents should be aware of and comply with their Homeowner Association's policies. For more information about the program, call 817.503.1111.
