New Trash Service Guidelines Effective August 1, 2018

New Trash Service Guidelines Effective August 1, 2018 

Republic Services and the City of Whitehouse make every possible attempt to provide residents with safe, clean and sanitary trash pickup.   There have been instances in the past where overloaded residential carts have had trash and debris fall out during and before pick up, this results in both an unsanitary condition for our neighborhoods as well as a safety concern for the driver that has to pick up the fallen debris by hand.  Effective August 1, 2018 Republic Services will only pick up their trash containers that have all the contents located within the Republic Services cart with the lid closed.    Any contents located outside the container will not be picked up and any carts with the lids propped open due to excessive trash may not be serviced.  Republic Services and the City of Whitehouse have provisions within the contract that allow residents additional carts at a cost of $3/month.    If you have any questions or to request additional carts, please contact the City of Whitehouse at 903-839-4914 option # 1.

In addition, bulk trash pick up will move from the 1st and 3rd Saturdays of each month to the 1st and 3rd Thursdays of each month.  To request bulk pick up please contact Republic Services at 903-586-1449.

Please remember to have all pick up items (cart(s) or bulk trash) out on the collection day by 7:00 a.m.

Street and Drainage Improvements

Updated Street and Drainage Improvements

Work has begun our street and drainage improvements.


Partridge is 100% completed.
Amanda Court is about 19% complete.
Other drainage projects such as Waterton, The Willows and Rosebrook will be bid out in the Fall 2018 with construction anticipated to start late Winter 2018 – Spring 2019. At this time, we also anticipate carrying out miscellaneous culvert repairs.  The Blackhawk Creek storm water repairs and completed and will be load rated this week.  Ditch cleaning will be bid out again in October for winter work.  


The links below show what streets are currently designated for base repair, asphalt overlay or seal coating.  Hagan Road has been removed from the project at this time because the heavy residential construction traffic will damage repairs done at this time and would not be the best use of funds.  Since the overlay work will not be done on Hagan those materials and funds will be transferred to other areas that are in need of work based upon greatest need.

2018 Seal Coat & Crack Seal Program.pdf

Asphalt Overlay work began 7-23-18 with substantial completion anticipated 11-12-18. About 25% of the base repair work has been completed.
ONYX Seal Coat is scheduled to begin 9-4-18. Anticipated completion in 30 days; Contractors are coordinating schedules to ensure all needed base repairs are done first.  
Dews Drive anticipated construction Spring/Summer 2019

We understand that this will cause a temporary inconvenience for some of our residents and we encourage you to contact us with any questions or concerns. We will do our best to make the process go as smooth as possible for you and your family. We know that the end result will greatly improve Whitehouse!
