Republic Services recycling collection for the City of Corsicana will be changing Tuesday, Oct. 1.
Residents wishing to have curbside recycling collection must call Corsicana Utility Billing at 903-654-4825 to request this service. Residents will receive a 95-gallon recycling container, and your collection schedule will be once per month. Republic Services will let each resident know their new service date. The cost for this optional service is $13.26 per month.
For residents choosing not to participate in the optional curbside recycling program, Republic Services will be removing their recycling containers starting the week of Oct. 1. No action is required if you do not want to participate in the optional service.
Republic Services will also provide a Recycling Drop Center, at no charge, for residential customers only. A current water bill and identification with a matching address must be presented for access to the center. Recyclables will only be accepted during the hours of operation listed below. Recyclable items left outside the facility after hours create litter and will be treated as illegal dumping.
Waste collection will be once per week. Corsicana utilizes 95-gallon containers for waste pickup. Containers must be placed curbside by 6:30 a.m. on your designated service day. All waste must be bagged and placed inside the container. Items outside the container will not be collected. Additional containers are available for $4.75/month each, and can be ordered by calling Republic Services at 903-874-8717 or 800-874-3215.
Containers should be placed at the curb at least three feet from any other object including water meters, gas meters, parked cars, mailboxes, trees, power poles, fences, other containers, etc.
Bulk Item Collection – Call in service
Bulk item collection is a call-in service and will be every Wednesday. Bulk items should be placed curbside no earlier than 5 p.m. Tuesdays. Bulk items placed at the curb will not be picked up unless you have called Republic Services at 903-874-8717 to schedule removal.
Bagged Leaves and Bundled Brush Collection – Scheduled collection
Republic Services will run a scheduled route to collect bagged leaves and bundled brush on Wednesdays. Brush must be cut and bundled in 4 foot sections.

If you do not want to wait until your scheduled collection day, residents may drop off bagged leaves during business hours at 620 S. Twelfth St., Monday through Friday.
Please note: Residential loose brush collection service is provided by the city of Corsicana once per month and service fees may apply. Residents must call the City of Corsicana at 903-654-4884 to schedule this collection.
