The City of Bella Vista contracts with Republic Services for household trash pickup service. Service day is determined by street name. If you do not know your designated pickup day, call the city at 479-876-1255.
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.
Republic Services provides each residence with one (1) sturdy 95-gallon wheeled poly-cart with a lid, free of charge. New customers can also request a one-time swap to a smaller 65-gallon cart. Call Republic Services at 800-431-1507 to request a smaller size. Existing customers can swap container sizes for a $15 fee.
Residents are longer allowed to leave tied trash bags at the curb, and all trash must be placed in the designated Republic receptacle.
• Republic Services will NOT pick up:
Cardboard boxes containing loose trash
Yard waste of any kind with regular household trash
Yard waste can be picked up separately for an annual fee. Call Republic to set that up.
• Trash must be placed at the street by 6 a.m. on the day of service. You may put trash out for pickup up to twelve hours before 6 a.m. day of pickup, and remove trash receptacles no later than 12 hours after pickup.
• Trash service are billed quarterly, directly from Republic Services.
• If you have missed your pickup, you may take your regular household trash, free of charge, to Republic Services’ Transfer Station located at 36 Bella Vista Way (by the Animal Shelter, west of U.S. 71 at Bear Hollow Rd). Please take identification indicating you are a resident of Bella Vista.
Republic Services will pick up one large item per week (no appliances) with prior notification. Call Republic at 800-431-1507 to let them know you have a bulk item. The pickup will be scheduled for either a Monday or a Friday, depending on your location. Place the item on the curb on that day by 6 a.m. for pickup. Examples of large items are: mattresses, furniture (except large sofas and sleeper sofas – call for arranging pickup), electronics, old grills, etc. You may also call them if you have questions regarding what is considered a large item.
Yard Waste/POA Stump Dumps
Although the city does not contract for pickup of yard waste, residents have two options: Set up this service directly with Republic Services by calling 800-431-1507, or take yard waste to the POA owned/managed stump dump, free of charge for property owners.
Highlands Stump Dump
From the intersection of Arkansas 340 and Arkansas 279, go through the Highlands Gate, go approximately 5.8 miles west on Highlands Boulevard. At the white church (Donovan Full Gospel Church) there is a sign for the Highlands Gun Range/Trap and Skeet and a Benton County road sign “Rocky Dell Hollow Road.” Turn left at these signs and go approximately 7/10 mile on Rocky Dell Hollow Road and turn right at the “Highlands Stump Dump” sign.
Please call the POA directly at 479-855-5060 for information regarding Stump Dump’s rules and regulations, and hours of operation (they vary) – they are not open during wet weather.
