Default garbage pickup?

I am starting the process of determining what to keep or bring to Texas next year when we move. I know here we can bring stuff to the dump or to the recycling area - or once a year there is a "big pickup". Are there restrictions to what and how much can be picked up? What about a hiring a dumpster (do HOAs even allow it?). If it will be difficult to get rid of something we are not quite sure about, I'd rather get rid of now, but if it is not a problem I may bring it down to see if we can use it (we are far away from selling here and buying there - but need to get rid of the s***) Oh yes - we are looking to buy in Flower Mound -thanks!!!

In the city of Dallas there is a once a month "big pickup." No size restrictions. I assume Flower Mound is similar.

I live in FM and our sub division has a HOA. Waste Management company provided us 2 big polycarts at no charge (one for trash and other for recycle). Every Wednesday they pick it from our curbside including big/ bulk trash. The previous company had higher rates, smaller recycle bin and monthly bulk trash so everyone is pretty happy with the new company.

Awesome - thanks so much! I didn't want to just get rid of items that we could potentially use, but knowing that there are big pickups are great. Thanks to everyone as this forum has helped me and my family make the decision to move. THanks again - my son is wearing his Texas Rangers hat now cheering for them
