City of Rockport Spring Leaf Pick-Up
Per its agreement with The City of Rockport, Republic Services will begin the Rockport Leaf Pick up, hand pick up of bagged leaves and grass clippings on April 1. The program will continue for four weeks.
Because Republic Services will not be using its traditional zone, residents will need to place their bags curbside on the Sunday evenings of March 31, April 7, April 14 and April 21.
Although a resident might have a regular Monday pick up date, it’s possible that it may not be picked up until later in the week OR a regular Tuesday pick up date may see yard waste removed as early as Monday, It’s important to note:
Each household may put out up to 12 bags of grass clippings; leaves; thatch; tree trimmings (limbs less than 4” in diameter); and garden waste, including plants, flowers, landscape vegetation, vegetative garden waste, windfall fruit and brush. Waste bags should be no greater than 35 gallons. Trash cans will not be serviced. Unacceptable items include dirt, stumps and large limbs. Regular weekly trash and bi-weekly recyclables will continue on schedule. For additional information, please call Utility Billing at (361) 729-2213, ext. 234 during business hours or visit the city website announcement
