Recycling Program

Curbside Recycling Unavailable Oct. 4 - 8

Curbside recycling services will not be available in Longview from Oct. 4 to 8. The change to regular recycling service is due to scheduled repairs and maintenance at Rivers Recycling, the local materials recovery facility. During that time, contents from curbside recycling carts will be taken to the landfill with regular trash rather than being recycled.

If customers prefer, they may choose to hold their recycling until the week of Oct. 11.

Trash collection, yard waste collection, bulky item pickup, and the compost site will continue to operate as normal during this time. For more information about recycling in Longview, please visit or call 903-237-1250.

The Sanitation Department provides recycling services to the people of Longview. All Longview residents who pay a City of Longview water bill receive a 95 gallon trash cart along with a 95 gallon recycling cart. Both carts are black with the trash cart having a black lid and the recycling cart having a blue lid. Cart service is provided once per week. To find your collection day visit the Sanitation Website.
