Trash Pickup Notice
TRASH PICKUP SCHEDULE
TUESDAY - Household waste, heavy trash & recycling
FRIDAYS - Household waste & heavy trash
 
TRASH CANS MUST BE STORED OUT OF VIEW
ON NON-PICKUP DAYS.
 
Polycarts should be placed at the curb facing the street by 7AM on service days.
 
WCA is our trash provider. Service is set up through WCA and fees are directly paid to WCA by each resident household. To renew or begin service, call WCA at 281-368-8397. All service and billing questions should be directed to this number.
 
Please pay your account balance at least two weeks before the deadline in order for your stickers to arrive in the mail before the first day of the new quarter. WCA allows a 7-day grace period into the new quarter.
 
WCA operates a sticker program. You must have the appropriate colored sticker for your blue polycart. Set your recycling bin next to your stickered blue polycart for recycle to be picked up. The current stickered blue polycart must be placed at the curb in order for yard debris placed at the curb or heavy trash to be picked up. Every quarter, after your bill has been paid a different color sticker will be mailed to you. Put the sticker on a clean, dry surface on your blue polycart so it is visible to the WCA truck.
 
CHANGES TO SERVICE
 
Heavy trash is limited to two (2) items per service day.
 
Depending on the total neighborhood yard waste volume for the day, WCA may have to limit the number of yard bags picked up. Please put as many yard waste bags as possible in your blue polycart. Your tree service provider should remove all trunks and branches. Smaller trees and bushes should be bundled in 4 foot lengths for WCA pickup.
 
Concerning recycling materials: all items must be rinsed and dry and loose in the gray polycart. Do not bag recycle materials, and do not recycle glass or pizza boxes.
 
For more details about recycling, please go to the WCA website: WCA Acceptable Recycling Materials. 
 
Please store your polycarts out of public view except on days of service to avoid deed restriction violations and the possibility of fees. Out of public view means in the garage, in the backyard, or behind an approved structure.
 
No one wants to live in or visit a neighborhood with 3944 trash cans sitting in front of everyone's homes!
