New Trash Service Guidelines Effective August 1, 2018

New Trash Service Guidelines Effective August 1, 2018 

Republic Services and the City of Whitehouse make every possible attempt to provide residents with safe, clean and sanitary trash pickup.   There have been instances in the past where overloaded residential carts have had trash and debris fall out during and before pick up, this results in both an unsanitary condition for our neighborhoods as well as a safety concern for the driver that has to pick up the fallen debris by hand.  Effective August 1, 2018 Republic Services will only pick up trash containers that have all the contents located within the cart with the lid closed.    Any contents located outside the container will not be picked up and any carts with the lids propped open due to excessive trash may not be serviced.  Republic Services and the City of Whitehouse have provisions within the contract that allow residents additional carts at a cost of $3/month.    If you have any questions or to request additional carts, please contact the City of Whitehouse at 903-839-4914 option # 1.

In addition, bulk trash pick up will move from the 1st and 3rd Saturdays of each month to the 1st and 3rd Thursdays of each month.  To request bulk pick up please contact Republic Services at 903-586-1449.

Please remember to have all pick up items (cart(s) or bulk trash) out on the collection day by 7:00 a.m.
