Mesquite, TX – July 11, 2022 – Last summer, the Mesquite City Council passed revisions to the Solid Waste Ordinance in accordance with the actions recommended by the Clean City Initiative Committee. One of these revisions includes the requirement for residents to place bagged solid waste in authorized residential trash containers. In an effort to provide residents with an affordable, uniform container that meets the intent of the ordinance, a Trash Cart Program began on June 1, 2022.
Enrollment in the program is OPTIONAL for existing Mesquite residents. The cart fee may be paid in full or over a three-month period which will be charged on the resident’s Utility bill. The one-time fees for containers are as follows.
Current residents have the option to participate in the Trash Cart Program by paying a solid waste fee of $75. Upon paying the fee, a 45-gallon cart will be delivered to the residence within three business days. An additional 45-gallon cart may also be requested for a fee of $50 with a maximum of two carts per residence.
