League City administrators have announced that the Republic Services-sponsored Cart Service Pilot program, in which residents of Centerpointe, Pecan Forest, and Nottingham Village subdivisions have been participating, is ending effective Monday, Feb. 19. The program, initiated in August 2017, provided approximately 1,050 residences with 96-gallon trash and recycling carts.
On Feb. 19, sub-contractors will begin collecting the wheeled, topped carts that were provided by Republic Services for the pilot program. Residents are asked to please place the empty carts on the curbside for easy pickup. This process is expected to take several weeks to complete.
Republic will continue to provide trash service utilizing rear loading vehicles, as it does throughout the other areas of the city. The program was originally scheduled to be terminated and carts collected by the end of January 2018, which coincides with the expiration of the initial term of Republic’s contract with the city.
However, the city requested, and Republic agreed, to delay the cart collection until the week of Feb. 19, so that residents may obtain other receptacles for continuing trash collection services. “We appreciate your cooperation throughout this process,” a city official said. Residents with questions should contact 832-386-2370, 281-554-1411 or 281-554-1007.
