March 20th is the first day of Spring, a time of the year when your focus turns to foliage and flowers. However, when you live in Texas, you also realize that it won’t be long before you are dealing with drought-like weather conditions and the brutal Texas heat.

In a joint effort to better-serve our neighbors, WCA and Memorial MUD would like to take this opportunity to explain how the new automated trash collection service works. We have jointly chosen this collection system as it provides the most efficient service for all of us. The heart of the automated system features roll-out carts supplied by WCA and a specialized collection truck equipped with a lifting mechanism. However, for this system to work effectively and consistently, it's important that we all place our collection containers as indicated below:
Tuesday - On this day place your household waste in the (95) gallon roll-out cart and your recycling in the 65-gallon cart. Everything must fit inside each cart and the lids must be closed. Bulk items or any bags placed outside the carts will not be picked-up.
Friday – On this day, you can use your 95 and 65 gallon roll-out carts as you did on Tuesday, but bulk waste that does not fit inside the carts will also be collected.
Trees, shrubs, brush trimmings and fencing must be bundled in lengths no greater than 4 feet with no branch diameter exceeding 3 inches. The bundling is required to allow quick pickup and size limitations are required to avoid damaging the equipment in the crushing process. All residential waste materials except tree and yard waste must be either in containers, bags or bundles not exceeding 40 pounds.
Items such as appliances, furniture, carpet (up to l room, rolled up four feet wide and less than fifty pounds), and cardboard boxes (flattened) will be picked up on Friday. By federal law, refrigerators and freezers or any other items containing Freon must be drained of Freon and have an accompanying bill to validate such service was performed.
Holidays – There will be no collection services on January 1st, Memorial Day, July 4th, Labor day, Thanksgiving, or Christmas. Services will resume on the next scheduled service day.
Items excluded from normal collection are dirt, rocks, bricks, concrete, tires, batteries, motor oil, cooking oil, waste generated by a private contractor or any materials or items deemed hazardous materials. WCA will leave a tag explaining the reason for non-collected item(s).
Other than for normal amounts of residential refuse, yard trimmings or bulk items, if notified in advance, WCA will meet with a resident prior to collection day to determine a price. If a resident does not notify WCA of such a special pick-up before its scheduled day, then WCA will leave a notice for the resident to contact Contractor during normal office hours before the next scheduled pick up day.
WCA will clean up any spillage that occurs during the collection or recycling process; provided, however, that if gasoline, motor oil, paints, cooking oil, or any other liquid items in a container that is not visible to Contractor personnel results in spillage that causes a stain, WCA cannot be responsible.
