Republic Returns to Regular Trash Schedule

Beginning Monday, May 25, 2020, Republic Services will return trash collection to the regular schedule.

The City would like to remind homeowners that Republic Services provides curbside collection of bulky waste during the regular residential collection at a rate of up to two cubic yards per collection day without any additional charges. Brush placed out on trash days should be bundled and tied in lengths of no more than four feet and no more than 50 pounds in weight.

Additionally, each resident is allotted up to 12 cubic yards of unbundled brush per year at no additional charge. Republic will collect amounts beyond this allotment for a fee. Unbundled brush collections must be scheduled in advance through the Republic Services Customer Service Call Center at (817) 317-2424.

“More residents are returning to work and Republic has adjusted their workforce and truck availability, which will allow them to resume the normal collection of brush and bulky materials,” said Lauren LaNeave, Assistant to the City Manager. “We want to thank everyone for their patience and cooperation during the time — we know that it has been a huge inconvenience.”
