The City of Conroe contracts with Republic Services to collect residential and small commercial garbage. Republic  provides a 96 gallon polycart for regular garbage and a 96 gallon recycle cart with wheels to each residence in the city limits. Both carts will be collected once a week on the same day with the collection days varying by location. On your collection day, simply move both carts to the street, separated at least 5 feet from each other. Collection times range between 7am to 6pm. Republic uses an automated system to lift the cart, dump the contents in the truck, then set the cart back on the ground. Please move your cart back off of the street after the trash has been collected.

All household garbage must be bagged and placed into the garbage polycart.

If you have some trash that does not fit in your cart, Republic Services will pick up bagged trash that is set out with the cart. The bags must be marked with a special tag that may be purchased at the City of Conroe Utility Billing Department located at City Hall. The tags cost $0.70 plus tax. If you regularly generate more trash than will fit in one cart, you may request an additional cart, for an extra monthly fee, by calling the department at (936) 522-3170. Additional recycle carts can be requested at no additional cost.

If you need to replace a damaged or stolen garbage or recycle cart, please contact the Utility Billing department at 936-522-3170.  Please allow 7-10 business days for your replacement cart.
