Waste Collection



TRASH: On each regularly scheduled collection day, Best Trash will collect residential refuse located at the curbside in the Best Trash provided trash cart. Please place the carts out to the street with the handles facing towards the street. Residents are restricted to one Best Trash cart for refuse and are encouraged to confine refuse to the cart, however additional refuse may be placed in containers between 30-50 gallons or bags not weighing over 40 pounds, placed next to the Best Trash provided trash cart. Any trash and the cart must be placed at the street by the curb by 7am on the day of collection.

EXCLUDED ITEMS: dirt, sod, mulch, rocks, bricks, tile, concrete, tires, batteries, motor oil, cooking oil, sheetrock, insulation, construction debris, waste generated by a private contractor, or any 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 are not visible to Best Trash personnel. If such items result in spillage 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).

HEAVY TRASH: Trees, shrubs, brush trimmings and fencing must be no larger than 3” inches in diameter, no more than 4’ feet long, tied in bundles not exceeding 40 pounds. Tied bundles are required to allow quick pick up and size limitations are required to avoid damaging the equipment in the compacting process. Items such as appliances, furniture, mattresses, carpet (up to 1 room of carpet, cut less than 4 feet wide, tied in bundles not exceeding 40 pounds), will be picked up on both garbage collection days. By Federal Law, refrigerators, freezers, and any other items containing Freon must be drained of Freon and have an accompanying bill to validate such service was performed.

SPECIAL COLLECTION SERVICE: For more than normal amounts of residential refuse, yard trimmings or bulk items, Best Trash does have the ability to provide a special collection service. For pricing information, please email your district name, address, and several pictures of your items to customerservice@besttrashtexas.com.

RECYCLEABLE ITEMS: PAPER (including cardboard), PLASTICS (1-5,7), ALUMINUM and TIN cans and GLASS (all colors) Best Trash takes great pride in our recycle program. Ensuring the best recycle program for our customers takes time and effort on both sides. Please remove caps, liquids and food products from inside the containers. Please only use the provided recycle cart for recyclable materials. The green recycle cart is NOT an extra trash container and will NOT be emptied as such. If items exceed container capacity, please place them adjacent to the cart well marked as recyclable materials. Cardboard is recyclable, please break down all boxes flat, and place them next to the recycle bin for collection.

CART CARE & MAINTENANCE: Best Trash will provide each current residence with ONE 65-gallon trash cart and ONE 65-gallon recycling cart. Best Trash will replace any bins that are defective or otherwise become unusable due to normal wear and tear. Lost or stolen bins can be replaced at $85.00 each by calling Best Trash or emailing customerservice@besttrashtexas.com.

HOLIDAY SCHEDULE: If your regular trash collection day falls on a holiday (New Year’s Day, Independence Day, or Christmas Day) the collection will be made on the next regularly scheduled collection day.
