Waste Disposal for Harris County MUD 1

In response to the COVID-19 spread regarding our Waste and Recycle pick up, Texas Pride is doing all that they can to have NO INTERRUPTION in our pick up schedule.

However, they have to protect their employees just as each of us want to be protected. In doing so, we are asking that all residents BAG ALL WASTE IN PLASTIC BAGS so as to minimize the direct contact of the employees with the garbage.

Also, while recycling always should be placed loose in your recycle container, if you are showing any signs of illness, please bag your recyclables that you have come in contact with and dispose of them with your garbage.

We’re doing all we can to keep everyone safe as we navigate these uncharted waters.
