Post-Harvey Solid Waste FAQ's


UPDATE: City, WCA Partner to Immediately Resume Regular Solid Waste Service for Municipal ProgramIn an effort to provide timely, efficient service to Municipal Solid  Waste Program customers in the wake of Hurricane Harvey, City management  and WCA developed a collection plan to resume regular and recycling  service for residents on Monday, Sept. 11 at 7 a.m.

“We are grateful to WCA officials for working with us to immediately  provide solid waste to our citizens as the City recovers from Hurricane  Harvey,” said City Manager Anthony J. Snipes. “This timely response  aligns with our goal to consistently provide superior service to  residents.”

The City is also partnering with Fort Bend County to provide residents  with up-to-date information about storm debris pickup plans. The updated  FAQs below address the most common solid waste questions being asked in  the community.

Residents are asked to park vehicles away from solid waste pickup areas  to assure trucks and crews have access to collect disposable materials.


Who will pick up my trash? 

For residents receiving City service, WCA will resumed regular,  recycling, bulk and yard waste pickups on Monday, Sept. 11 at 7 a.m.   Residents are reminded to bag all green waste, such as grass or leaves.

When will storm debris such as building materials and tree limbs be picked up and who is handling those collections? 

Other waste resulting from Hurricane Harvey, such as construction,  demolition debris and tree limbs, will be picked up in accordance with  the Fort Bend County Office of Emergency Management debris management  program. The County has announced that these items may now be bagged.  The County initiated this clean up during the Sept. 9-10 weekend and  will conduct two additional sweeps throughout the City.

Will I receive a rebate or discount if WCA did not pick up my household  trash, yard trimmings, and recyclable materials during or after the  hurricane? 

No. Pursuant to WCA’s contract with the City, if the company is unable  to perform its duties because of an event out of its control, such as a  hurricane or a tornado, WCA’s inability to perform must be excused  during and after such event to provide crews with enough time to correct  the adverse effect of the event.

Do I have to separate my trash for pick up? 

Yes. Refer to the “Separating Your Debris” diagram above and on the homepage of the City’s website: www.missouricitytx.gov.
