Garbage/Recycling Service Suspended
Due to flooding conditions and closure of the landfills, Republic Services has suspended garbage and recycling collections for the remainder of Monday. In some areas, trash cans and bags have washed down the street. When you feel it is safe to do so, please retrieve your trash cans and bags from the gutter, especially if they are blocking a storm drain.
Here’s Republic’s plan for the remainder of the week:
- Residential Trash - Trash will be collected on your regular collection day. (Trash they were unable to collect on Monday routes will be picked up on Thursday.)
- Residential Recycling - Monday routes will be picked up on Tuesday. Tuesday routes will be picked up on Wednesday.
- Commercial - Commercial collections will resume on Tuesday.
Tuesday afternoon Update: Republic's recycling truck finished Monday’s makeup early and proceeded to collect Tuesday routes today without informing us. If your recycling day is Tuesday and your cart was not out today, they will be back Wednesday to collect it. Be sure to have your cart out by 7 a.m. so it does not get missed.
Multiple locations across town are experiencing heavy flooding as of mid-day Monday. Please do NOT get out and drive if it’s not necessary. If water is covering the roadway - turn around, don’t drown. Impacted areas include:
- Boulevard 26/Harwood
- Glenview west of Rufe Snow
- Glenview near Booth Calloway
- Kirk Ln near John Barfield Trail
- Smithfield/North Tarrant
- Emerald Hills Way
- Onyx S./Fossil Creek Park
This list will be updated as additional locations are discovered.
Please call 9-1-1 if you’re experiencing a high water emergency.
