Update on Garbage Collection in Harris County MUD 501

Unfortunately, because of the large backlog from the Harvey storm event and the limited availability of equipment during their recovery, Residential Recycling was not able to collect garbage in Harris County MUD 501 yesterday as anticipated. Residential Recycling has stated they plan to begin garbage collection only (no recycling) this afternoon, and they expect to continue working through the weekend until household garbage collection in the District is complete. As previously mentioned, Residential Recycling is prioritizing collection of household waste and may not collect storm debris at this time. Please continue to monitor the District’s website for additional information on garbage and recycling collection.

Garbage Collection Will Occur on Friday

Residential Recycling has confirmed they will provide garbage collection only (no recycling) tomorrow, September 1st in Harris County MUD 501. They are prioritizing household garbage collection, so storm debris may not be collected tomorrow.

Because they are still catching up from having to suspend operations during the Harvey storm and flood event, Residential Recycling may not be able to begin garbage collection in the District until the afternoon. They will begin collection as soon as possible, so please place your garbage in the normal garage door collection location by 7 a.m. as usual.

Please be advised garbage collection services may last later into the evening than usual. The District appreciates your patience and understanding as we begin to recover from this unprecedented storm event.

Update on Garbage Collection Services

Residential Recycling and Refuse of Texas, Harris County MUD 501’s garbage and recycling provider, experienced significant flooding at their facility during the Harvey storm event. In order to ensure it is safe for them to resume garbage collection services, they are having mechanics inspect all of their equipment today. Residential Recycling has stated they will use their best efforts to collect garbage only (not recycling) in the District tomorrow, Friday, September 1st. Please be advised that once they resume services, they will prioritize collection of household trash in the District first, and then will begin to collect storm debris as possible.

The District will post an additional update on its website later today when we receive confirmation regarding whether garbage collection services in the District will resume tomorrow. Please continue to monitor the District’s website for additional information.

No Garbage and Recycling Collection on Tuesday
