Crowder Gulf Begins Final Pass for Debris Removal

Week of March 14 - Crowder Gulf has now begun their final pass for debris collection and anticipates finishing it by the end of March. Residents should have debris cleared, sorted and piled at the curb for removal. After the final pass is complete, residents will be responsible for their own debris disposal.

As a reminder, please be sure no vehicles are parked in front of the debris piles as this will hinder the collection process.

Debris Deadline

Landfill Passes Available
Rowlett residents affected by the tornado may come to City Hall (4000 Main), the Rowlett Community Centre (5300 Main Street) or the Utility Billing Office (4004 Main Street, behind City Hall) to receive two landfill passes, each of which will allow you dispose of debris without charge twice in a calendar year (four trips to the landfill). The normal proof of a utility bill will be waived at this time, residents just need to present ID of some form. We realize that some residents lost many forms of identification and we will do our best to accommodate those without formal ID.
