DSC_0067The City of Whitehouse has changed its provider for Waste Management to Republic Services beginning May 1st.  Residents within the City have been  notified of this change with an informational packet that was mailed in late April with the City utility bills.  All City of Whitehouse residents have receivd a 95 gallon cart for their trash pickup.  A map of the City trash pickup dates was also in the informational packet, and a larger map will be at City Hall for those wishing to see what day their trash pickup will be.  All waste must be bagged and placed in the cart, and carts must be placed at the curb no later than 7am on the day of pickup.

Along with trash pickup, they also offer curbside recycling.  All residents within the city are encouraged to sign up for curbside recycling by sending in their form that is attached to the informational packet, or dropping it off at City Hall, or calling 903 586-1449.  Residents who sign up for curbside recycling will receive a recycling cart with a LIGHT BLUE lid.  This cart is strictly for recycling and trash is not to be placed in it.  A flyer listing the items available to recycle is part of the informational packet.  WEDNESDAYs will be recycle pickup day.

Twice a month, on the 1st and 3rd Saturdays, a BULK ITEM pickup collection will be provided.  BULK ITEMS are things too bulky for your waste cart, such as sofas, mattresses, other furniture, grills, etc.  Up to 2 bulk items can be picked up each time.  Items not accepted are appliances containing freon (fridges), batteries, free liquids and hazardous materials.  If you plan to have a BULK item picked up, you MUST call Republic Services to schedule your pickup at 903 586-1449.DSC_0068

Along with the BULK item pickup, residents in the City can bring up to 3 cubic yards (a pickup truck load) of waste from their homes one time each month to the Greenwood Farms Landfill at 12920 FM 2767 in Tyler.  Residents must bring a current Whitehouse utility bill receipt, and picture ID.  All loads must be tarped according to State Law.  The landfill hours are: Mon-Fri  6:30am until 4:30pm and Saturday  6:30am until 1pm.
