NRH Leaders Urge Continued Action
With the number of coronavirus cases in Tarrant County continuing to rise, North Richland Hills Mayor Oscar Trevino and Mayor Pro Tem Rita Wright Oujesky urge all residents to continue efforts to stop the spread of coronavirus. Since recording this video on Friday morning, the number of cases has jumped to 404 in Tarrant County, including 8 in NRH. You can stay up to date with the latest numbers on the county's website.
Temporary Change in Garbage Collections
Beginning the week of April 5, Republic Services resumes collection of bulky household items and bundled tree limbs with a special pickup each Wednesday throughout the city. However, they will not be picking up bagged grass or leaves at this time. We anticipate collection of bagged yard waste to resume in the near future.

Please place bulky items and bundled tree limbs out for collection only on Wednesdays. Bulky items over 50 pounds will not be collected. If you have bulky items that can wait for collection, please do not set them out during this time. Be mindful that Republic is being strained by staff shortages and we do not want to overwhelm this essential service.

On your normal collection days, crews will continue to focus on regular household waste. Please bag and tie all household waste to keep crews safe. Place bagged household trash in a separate pile from bagged yard waste, since crews are unable to collect all the yard waste at this time.

Republic has made these changes in their service delivery due to the increase in trash quantities, as well as a decrease in staff. With families at home practicing social distancing, there has been a 40% increase in household trash volumes. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we work through this crisis together. Our goal, as well as Republic’s, is to get back to normal operations as soon as possible.
Don't forget to complete 2020 Census
With the hurdles many are facing right now surrounding COVID-19, it is especially important to answer the census to ensure our community gets its fair share of federal funding to help out those who need it most in the coming years. North Richland Hills has a current response rate of 50%. If you have not done so already, please respond online at www.my2020census.gov or by phone 1-844-330-2020 today.

Census data determines our congressional representation AND determines how much federal funding our community will receive each year for the next decade for things like education, Medicare and Medicaid, WIC, job training, emergency services and more.
