Basic Services 

The City of Hewitt provides a trash and recycling cart collection program. Your basic service include the following: 

  • Once a week trash collection
  • Recycling service every two weeks

Important Rules for Trash Pick-Up 

  • Roll your cart to the curb for collection by 7 am.
  • Proper cart placement is extremely important. On your collection day,  roll your cart within two feet of the edge of the street. Make sure the handles are facing your house so that when the cart is lifted, the lid opens towards the street. Please check to see that it is not obstructed by parked cars, boats, etc. The Post Master requires that the carts be placed far enough away from the mailbox so that the carrier can deliver without interference.
  • You should not put concrete, large amounts of dirt, heavy waste, hot ashes, paints, or any hazardous liquids / materials. The cart is designed to hold a maximum weight of 50 pounds. 
  • To request an additional trash or recycling cart, please contact the Utility Department at (254) 666-3151. There will be an additional monthly charge for each additional cart. 
  • All of your bagged household trash and yard waste may be disposed of in your cart. Please bag loose items to prevent littering. Everything must fit inside the cart with the lid closed.
  • Call Republic at (800) 860-0123, ext. 23008 to schedule bulky item pick-ups. Please note there is a fee for this service.
