City of Quitman Refuse Service
LRS provides the City of Quitman residents with services for refuse (garbage). LRS offers many other services for Quitman residents including large, open top construction style containers as well. We are proud to be a partner in your community!
For more information on the required collection for specific items or material types, please click on one of the tabs below.
Garbage is collected on Wednesdays and Fridays in the City of Quitman. Please contact customer service if you wish to confirm your service day. All items need to be placed out to the curb the night before the service. LRS offers wheeled carts for garbage with a flip-top lid and handlebar to throw your refuse in. There is no limit to the amount of garbage that can be placed out for collection, as long as materials are properly prepared and contained. All residents should use the LRS issued cart for garbage materials. LRS can provide an additional cart for waste with an added rental fee.
LRS has expanded our temporary services division to create an easier customer experience. These temporary services include dumpster roll-offs of all sizes to contain your construction debris and other home renovation waste.

How do I clean my cart?
Fill the cart with hot water and a capful of vinegar or grease-cutting dish soap. Let it sit for about 10 minutes and rinse. Once the cart has been thoroughly rinsed, set the cart out with the lid open in the sun to dry.
What if I need my cart replaced?
Carts that are broken due to damage incurred during the collection are reported by the driver for replacement at no charge. Residents are encouraged to contact LRS if they notice damage to the cart during the collection process to request a replacement cart.
If damage occurs to the cart due to other reasons, please contact LRS to request a replacement cart. An exchange fee will be applied and billed to the resident if requesting a new cart due to damage not incurred during the collection process or odors.
Is this considered garbage?
Latex paint is considered regular garbage, but it must be completely dried, with the lid off so the driver is able to see inside the can. Dry latex paint by leaving lid off or open and/or mix kitty litter until the paint is completely absorbed. Do not place out for collection until the paint is completely dry.
Alkaline batteries are considered regular garbage and should be thrown into the garbage. It is always recommended that tape be used on each end of the battery and placed into a plastic sandwich bag when disposing of them.
How do I report a missed pickup?
If your waste, recycling, or yard waste services are not collected on the service day by 6 pm, please contact LRS by either calling 479-878-1384.
You can also reach out by submitting a support request in the top right-hand section of this page.
