You may call GFL (former WCA) at 281.403.5800.
Each residential unit residing within the incorporated areas of Missouri City will receive (1) 95-gallon Cart on wheels (Blue) and (1) 65-gallon Recycle Cart on wheels (Grey).
Yes. GFL (former WCA) will take requests throughout the year and provide the new requested size in the first quarter of each calendar year. Residents have the option of a 65, or 95 gallon cart for garbage and recycling. To request a different size, please contact GFL Customer Service at 281.403.5800.
The automated collection program uses vehicles that are equipped with a lifting mechanism. The lifting mechanism reaches out to the specially designed cart provided by GFL (former WCA), lifts it up, empties the contents and returns the cart to its original position near the curb. Due to the variety of shapes and sizes of store purchased trash cans, only the designated carts provided can be used for automated collection services. GFL recommends utilizing your existing containers for bulk trash or yard waste.
There are numerous benefits:
There is no cost for the cart to be provided to your home, and for normal wear and tear there is no cost to residents to have a cart replaced. However, there are costs due to carelessness, neglect or malicious damage, which result in a cart being rendered unserviceable.
Extra carts will be available after the start of the new program, which began service on Jan. 4, 2016. A homeowner can have an extra trash cart at a cost of $75 per year; call GFL's (former WCA) Missouri City Customer Service Center for details; 281.403.5800.
The carts should be placed directly at the curb, with the handle away from the street, facing your home. Keep at least three feet of distance between carts and mailboxes or other objects, and do not park cars in front of, or close to, the cart.
The recycle cart has information on the lid that lists “acceptable items”:
The recycling will be single stream, which allows residents to place all recyclables together in one container.
Residents with health concerns should complete a valet/assisted service form. For questions, call 281.403.5800.
You may contact the GFL's (former WCA) Customer Service Center at 281.403.5800. This number will be printed on the lids of the trash and recycle containers for future reference.
Yard waste will be collected once a week. You may utilize your own containers or place the yard waste in compostable bags.
