 FAQs about new recycling carts

The City of North Richland Hills contracts with Republic Waste Services for garbage and recycle collection. The company has a dedicated customer service line for North Richland Hills customers. To report missed pickups or for questions about garbage and recycling services, please call 817-317-2450.

Collection Days
  • Tuesdays and Fridays - Residents north of the Cotton Belt Rail Line
  • Mondays and Thursdays - Residents south of the Cotton Belt Rail Line

Please view the following maps to determine your garbage and recycling collection days:

Please Note: Recycling is no longer collected at the same time on both sides of the street. They pick up one side of the street, continuing along a set route and then pick up the other side. So, it could be a while between both sides being picked up. 

Bin Placement
Garbage cans and recycle carts should be placed at the curb no earlier than 7:00 p.m. the evening before collection, nor later than 7:00 a.m. the day of collection. Place recycling cart with wheels next to curb, at least 3 feet from garbage bags, cans, mailboxes, and 5 feet from parked vehicles.

Empty cans and carts should be removed from curbside as soon after collection as possible and no later than the following day. Trash and recycling containers should be stored in the garage or another location behind the building line that is not visible from the street. 

Garbage service is billed with your water and sewer bill. For questions about establishing new service or billing, please contact the NRH Utility Customer Service Department at 817-427-6200.
