Trash (Solid Waste) Service

Garbage collection is provided under contract by Republic Services. Trash is collected on Tuesdays and Fridays (excluding holidays). If service falls on a holiday, garbage will be picked up on the next regularly-scheduled collection day. Bagged trash should be placed on the curb no later than 7:00 a.m. on collection day. Please do not put trash out the night before.

Tree limbs and brush must be neatly stacked in bundles not exceeding four (4) feet in length or fifty (50) pounds of total weight. The solid waste company can accommodate two to three bundles per pick-up. Grass clippings will not be collected. Please mulch clippings back onto your lawn. If these are blown into the street, you could be fined per Town Code.

Curbside Recycling
Recycling is collected on Tuesdays (excluding holidays). By 7:00 a.m. on collection day, place approved items (see list below) in your green recycle bin at the curb or in your alley for pickup. Please do not set out newspapers if it is raining or rain is in the forecast.

Household Hazardous Waste and Chemicals

Residents of Pantego can drop off household hazardous waste at the City of Fort Worth's Environmental Collection Center. You must first obtain a voucher from Town Hall (1614 S Bowen Road) in the amount of $50.00, which allows one trip per address per year.
