If your trash was not picked up on your scheduled day, it will be picked the next day. We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your understanding as these crews work hard to service our citizens with their limited staffing.

Haltom City Introducing Carted Trash Service
Effective October 3, 2022 Waste Connections will initiate a carted trash option

Please note...a route change and a change in recycling pickup days are coinciding with this new carted service. Starting Monday October 3, 2022 residents currently serviced Wednesday and Saturday will now be serviced Monday and Thursday. If a resident has Monday/Thursday trash pickup, recycling will be picked up on Mondays. If a resident has Tuesday/Friday trash pickup, recycling will be picked up on Tuesdays.

Starting October 3, 2022, Haltom City residents will have the option to utilize a Waste Connections-issued carted trash service. This service comes with no additional charge or change in your monthly service rates.

Please do not place carts on the curb before October 3, 2022, as they will not be serviced. Carted service will start on October 3, 2022. If you have not received a cart by October 1 please call Waste Connections at 817-222-2221.


Waste Connections will deliver a Green Cart, at no cost, to every home that pays a utility bill in Haltom City.


Haltom City is upgrading to automated trucks that lift and empty carts. This is an optional service.

When Does it Start?

New carts will be delivered between September 12 - October 1, 2022. Please do not set carts out prior to October 3, 2022.

What are the Benefits of Carted Trash Service?

  • Carts are easier and safer for residents, because there is no carrying or lifting of heavy trash cans.
  • Carts keep rodents and pets out of the trash, given the tight lids.
  • Cleaner and healthier neighborhoods with no litter on streets from bags breaking or from loose trash after pickup.
  • Large, durable, no-cost carts are maintained by Waste Connections.
  • This is only an option. Residents who choose not to use the cart may call Waste Connections at 817-222-2221 60 days after the start of the cart service and Waste Connections will pick up the cart. Cart service starts on October 3, 2022.
  • There is no change to your current service. Any trash placed outside the cart will still be serviced.
Water & Sewer Rate Calculations are Changing
Conserve & Pay Less
What do my water and sewer rates pay for?

Water and sewer rates pay for the cost of operating the utilities, including personnel, maintenance, water resources, administration, debt service, and capital construction.

 haltom city water sewer pipes

When was the last time water and sewer rates were adjusted?

Water and sewer rates for residential and non-residential customers were last adjusted in 2019. In 2021, a new rate structure was established and the new billing will begin October of 2022. Costs are adjusted to maintain the infrastructure for quality, reliability, and costs associated with access to safe drinking water.

Who is Affected

All water & sewer customers of Haltom City


To align with industry best standards for utility billing methods


New rates go into effect on October 1, 2022

How Rates are Changing

A rate structure and sample billing calculation is linked and embeded below, in PDF format.


The former billing rate method utilized 3 groups (A, B, C) defined by the number of units served at the location. Customers in each group were charged a base rate and consumption depending on the group they were in.

*Note: The sampling of comparable cities done during the rate study found no other comporable cities with this system of billing.


The new billing method utilizes a tiered pricing structure. In this structure, users pay a base rate by meter size including the first 1,000 gallons of water. Additional charges are incurred based on the amount of water used if it exceeds 1,000 gallons.

In short, the more water you use, the more you pay.

Water conservation isn’t just good for the environment— it can help you save money on your utilities!

  • Check all connections, toilets, and faucets for leaks
  • Take a shower instead of a bath
  • Install low-flow shower heads
  • Install low-volume flush toilets
  • Turn off water when brushing teeth until it’s time to rinse
  • Install faucet aerators
  • Water lawns in the early morning to avoid evaporation (and follow all current watering restrictions!)
  • Only run full loads in the dishwasher and washing machine

  • New Fire Station #3 Now in Operation

    New Fire Station #3 Now in Operation

    Architecturally, the new fire station brings state of the art facilities to north Haltom City. A cost efficient solution, the new building was constructed using pre-engineered steel framing systems. The environmentally efficient envelope enclose the functional spaces within a masonry and stucco skin.

    The roof is constructed of an insulated metal panel system that provides an energy code compliant system that sandwiches 6” rigid foam between metal interior and exterior skins, leaving clean surfaces on both sides and eliminating the need for secondary interior ceiling systems (which age more rapidly).

  • Haltom City Unveils "Buffalo Way" Street Name

    On Friday, April 8, 2022 Haltom City officials along with representatives, students and staff from Haltom High School unveiled the newly renamed street Buffalo Way. The previous name for this street, which runs east and west and is just south of the high school off of Haltom Road, was Fossil Ridge Circle.

    Haltom City Police Corporal Jason Michlitsch initiated the idea for the name change and presented it to Mayor Pro Tem Lin Thompson. The name change was then approved by the City Council. Corporal Michlitsch thought having this intersection, where Haltom Road and Buffalo Way cross, would be a great representation of the school and community coming together.
