Due to a Covid outbreak among their employees, Waste Connections did not have the staff to complete all garbage pick ups. 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.
March 2, 2023 Storm Event
Waste Connections Bulk Pick-Up

Regarding tree limbs, etc, Waste Connections will be picking up a reasonable amount more than usual this week (Mar 5-10). If you have an unusually large amount of tree limbs to dispose of you can call WC (817-222-2221) to make arrangements for a bulk pick-up.

Otherwise, as they make the rounds this week WC will evaluate tree limb pickups on a case-by-case basis, servicing as much as they reasonably can.

Repairs Caused by Storm

Due to the weather event on Thursday, March 2, 2023, Haltom City Code Enforcement and Planning and Inspections Department understands it will take time for those residents affected to make the necessary repairs to their property, including clean up from the storm damage.

Haltom City will waive permits for repairs to existing fences for the next thirty (30) days. If there are any structural repairs, roofing, or other damages caused by the storm, contact Haltom City Planning and Inspections Department at 817-222-7730 to see if a permit is necessary for your repair BEFORE you start work on the project. Haltom City Inspections Department wants to ensure all repairs are done safely and are completed by licensed professionals.

Haltom City Introduces 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

    The new Haltom City Fire Station #3, located at 5011 Old Denton Rd., is now in operation and is housing shifts. Expected to be the busiest fire station in the city, Station #3 will house eight firefighters, one front line engine, one ladder truck and one reserve engine

    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).

The new building will help set the standards and expectations of the future as it relates to city services, economic development, quality of life, and employee recruitment/retention.

Scheduled Completion: Aug 2024

In May 2022 Haltom City voters passed a bond election authorizing the construction of a new City Hall. The new building will be located just south of the Haltom City Public Library, at the corner of Glenview Dr. and Haltom Rd. The scheduled completion date of the new City Hall is August 2024. A groundbreaking was held on February 21, 2023.

City services that will be operating out of the new facility include:

  • City Council meetings and offices
  • City Administration
  • Utility Billing
  • Economic Development
  • Emergency Management
  • Human Resources
  • Finance
  • Municipal Court
  • Information Technology
  • Code Compliance
  • Planning, Community Development & Permitting

The current City Hall facility was originally constructed 65 years ago, in 1957. Haltom City’s population has subsequently increased by over 100%, with an additional 5,000 to 6,000 more residents expected to relocate here within the next 5 years. A needs assessment, completed in 2013, showed the current City Hall no longer met industry standards in terms of space, functionality, and requirements set forth in the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The new facility will be built to comply with all ADA and code requirements, including installation of modern safety and energy standards.
