[ARCHIVED] City Hall Closure Extended Through April 30; Essential Services in Place

City Hall Closed-Services Available

In compliance with the Executive Order of Tarrant County regarding the coronavirus pandemic, the Benbrook City Hall closure has been extended through April 30, 2020, or as the order is modified. 

Police, fire, ambulance, and other essential services continue. For non-emergency dispatch, call 817-249-1610. For emergencies, dial 911. 

City staff can be reached by calling 817-249-3000, or email

Trash and recycling collection services, which are provided by Republic Services, will continue, including collection of yard waste and yellow bags. Republic has also announced that, beginning Wednesday, April 22, they will resume residential curbside collection of brush and bulk items. However, Republic asks that citizens please limit the quantity of brush and bulk items they put out. 

In addition to the curbside pickup, Republic Services still has two blue dumpsters located behind the Benbrook Community Center/YMCA, 1899 Winscott Road. Please note that these dumpsters are for brush and yard waste only -- bulk materials will contaminate the load and cannot be accepted. Republic Services customer service: 817-332-7301.
