Trash & Recycling

The City of Bella Vista contracts with Republic Services for household trash pickup service. Residents should set up trash service directly through Republic Services - 800-431-1507. Your service day is determined by street name: TRASH COLLECTION DAYS BY STREET.

Inclement weather policy
If Bentonville Schools are closed due to weather, your trash typically will not be picked up that day. If only one day of pickup is missed, trash will be delayed by one day the remainder of the week. If two or more days are missed, please hold your trash until the following week. Trash will resume with the regular pick up schedule the remainder of the week.
