Attn:  Residents of Harris County MUD No. 249

On Saturday April 2, 2011, BEST TRASH will become your new trash collection company.

Trash service is still Wednesday-Saturday.

Please have trash out by 7:00 a.m.

 On each regularly scheduled collection day, Best Trash will collect residential refuse located at the curbside.  Refuse must be in containers or bags not exceeding 50 gallons or weighing over 40 pounds.

 Items excluded from normal collection:  dirt, rocks, bricks, concrete, tires, batteries, motor oil, cooking oil, waste generated by a private contractor or an materials or items deemed hazardous materials.  Please do not dispose of gasoline, motor oil, paints, cooking oil, or any other liquid items in a container that is not visible to Best Trash personnel.  If it results in a spill that causes a stain, Best Trash is not responsible for the cleanup.  Best Trash will leave a tag explaining the reason for any non-collected item(s).

 Trees, shrubs, brush trimmings and fencing:  must be bundled in lengths no greater than 4 feet with no branch diameter exceeding 3 inches.  Bundling is required to allow quick pickup and size limitations are required to avoid damaging the equipment in the crushing process.

 Items such as appliances, furniture, carpet (up to 1 room, cut and rolled up into bundles four feet wide and less than 40 pounds), cardboard boxes (flattened), will be picked up either of your collection days.  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.

 Special pick up for items excluded by the contract:  If notified in advance, Best Trash will meet with you prior to collection day to set a price to haul away non-contract items.  If you do not notify Best Trash of a special pick-up before your scheduled pick up day, Best Trash will leave a notice for you to contact Best Trash during normal office hours to arrange for a price and time for the extra pick up.


Best Trash will supply new 48 gallon recycle carts the week of May 1.


Recycling:  Best Trash will collect papers, plastics, aluminum and tin cans and glass placed within the provided recycling container.  Please remove caps, liquids and food products from inside the containers.  If items exceed container capacity, please place them adjacent to bin well marked as recycling.  If items are left in your bin, it means they are no recyclable.  Please dispose of these items in your trash container for the next scheduled pick up.  Please only use the recycle bins for recyclable materials, not as an extra trash container.  Best Trash will provide each current residence with one recycling bin.  Best Trash will replace any bins that are defective or otherwise become unusable due to normal wear and tear.  Theft, lost or additional carts can be replaced at $50.00 each by calling Best Trash.

 Holidays:  If your regular pick-up falls on a holiday (New Year’s Day, Memorial Day, July 4th – Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas Day), the pick-up will be made on the next regular scheduled pick-up day.  If your recycling day falls on a holiday it will be picked up the next week on your normal scheduled recycle day.
