New Trash and Recycling Contract Takes Effect October 1

On October 1, 2014, the City’s new waste collection contract with Republic Waste Services will take effect. As part of the new contract, the rate—reflected on water bills, will increase by $0.17 per month, from $14.23 to $14.40. This breaks down to $9.50 per month for solid waste, $3.80 per month for recycling and $1.10 tax.  Commercial rates also will be adjusted as well to reflect a 1.18% increase.

This new rate includes trash collection two times per week, automated recycling collection once each week, bagged grass collection, curbside leaf recycling, a household hazardous waste collection event, bulk collection, and bundled brush collection.

As Southlake’s solid waste and recycling provider since 2007, Republic maintains a 90% satisfaction rate.

If you have questions about the fee increase or the City’s contract, please call the City at 817-748-8400.  If you have questions about your pickup days or are in need of some of Republic’s special services, please call 817-317-2424.
