All residential water customers within the City limits of the City of Hurst are required by City ordinance to utilize City contracted sanitation services.
The residential customer has the option of placing household garbage at the curb (on the house side of the curb not in the gutter) for a monthly charge of $7.57, plus sales tax, or behind the building line for a monthly charge of $15.26, plus sales tax.
All garbage, trash and refuse must be placed for pick-up by 7:00 A.M. In the case of customers who use closed waterproof containers or metal cans, these should be removed from curbside by 7 P.M. on the day of collection, assuming collection has taken place.
All grass clippings, leaves, and debris, other than household garbage MUST be placed in disposable containers at curbside (on the house side of the curb not in the gutter).
The customer must provide and use containers sufficient in number to hold the garbage and trash accumulating on his premises.
Garbage and trash containers in use must be kept securely closed so as to prevent the scattering of contents and to render the contents inaccessible to insects, rodents, and other animals.
All garbage shall be placed in either securely closed plastic bags, in a box, or in closed waterproof containers, or metal cans less than 33-gallon capacity. (No paper grocery sacks.)
Containers must be placed either at the curbside (on the house side of the curb not in the gutter) or behind the building line at a point where they may be reached without entering a gate. This item is dependent upon the option chosen in (2) above.
All garbage or trash mixed with any liquid shall be drained before being placed in garbage or trash containers. No container that contains water or any liquid shall be picked up.
If brush cannot be placed in a disposable container, it must be cut in lengths not to exceed four (4) feet in length and bundled and stacked at the curbside with the larger ends placed toward the street. Normal brush and trash pickup will not take brush or trash occupying more than six-four (64) cubic feet whether loose or in bags. All vines and thorny bushes shall be placed in disposable containers, and no item shall weigh more than (50) pounds. (No contractor materials.) A customer may receive a special pickup upon request (817.332.7301) for an additional charge, depending on the quantity of material to be removed.
Take All Service: the Contractor shall pick up any and all trash, refuse and yard waste in containers and bundled, construction and fencing materials generated by the home owner resulting from repair and remodeling projects, refrigerators and freezers with certification report that CFCs have been removed by a Certified Technician, washing machines, hot water heaters, dishwashers, stoves, and other household appliances and furnishings. Stockade-type fence panels must be cut into 4x6 sections or smaller. Loose pickets or slats must be tied and bundled.
It is the duty of the customer to report any complaint or failure of pickup to Republic Services at 817.332-7301.
The collection and removal of garbage, trash, and brush from premises used for residential purposes shall be made two (2) times each week, except NEW YEAR'S DAY, INDEPENDENCE DAY, THANKSGIVING DAY, AND CHRISTMAS DAY.
