Republic Services will begin delivery of wheeled 65 gallon recycling carts to residents within the next four to six months as the City of Arlington converts to an automated recycling program. The plan was approved at the August 7th city council meeting. Based on survey results from residents who participated in the pilot program, the city council voted 6 to 3 to approve the program.
Residents will each receive one 65-gallon cart with wheels and a lid, to increase recycling capacity. The switch from bins to carts will also allow for easier maneuverability and decrease litter on windy days.
As part of this transition, Republic Services will switch to CNG collection vehicles, but all other aspects of recycling services will remain unchanged. Residents won’t see any additional charges on their utility bills until the new carts are delivered.
Residents with additional questions may call 817-459-6778 for assistance.
