Trash Service and Recycling

Trash Service

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

Regular and heavy 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

Recycling Program

The City of Tom Bean has entered into a partnership with Republic Services for a recycling program. The receptacle has moved recently — it is located at City Hall on South Britton St.

Plastic, paper, aluminum cans, and cardboard only (no glass).

Instructions for how to recycle are on Republic’s Recycling Simplified website:

Most importantly, your recycling should be:

  • Empty. Clean. Dry.
  • No smell
  • No plastic bags
  • No bagged recyclables (just open your bag and dump it in – no blue bags either)

And should NOT include:

  • Food waste
  • Soiled or wet paper and cardboard
  • Liquid in bottles
  • Coffee cups
  • Glass
  • Plastic bags
