Trash Service and Recycling

Trash Service

A utility bill from the City will consist of Water, Sewer, and Trash.

Regular trash pickup is every Wednesday morning. Please have trash out by 6:00 AM. Extra totes are available at $9.10 per tote, per month. Heavy trash pickup is also on Friday but we ask that you contact City Hall with a description of the objects and an email will be sent to the trash company so that they are aware of an additional pickup.

Please contact City Hall at 903-546-6321 with your trash pickup questions and concerns.

Business, Commercial, Roll-offs, and Dumpsters

The city handles small totes only. Please contact Republic Services directly for anything other than small totes: 817-317-2000 or
