Trash/Recycling

Best Trash Update

For the health and safety of our residents and crews, our priority is the putrescible residential waste.  We will continue the collection of tied and bundled crepe myrtles, bags of grass and leaves not weighing more than 40 lbs., but with the temporary limitation of up to 3 bags per household at this time.  With the high volume of yard waste, it is not possible for our crews to collect everything at every house and still make it to the landfill before it closes. We always strive to go above and beyond, but due to the current conditions, it is not possible at this time.  Please be patient with us during this time while crews are working very hard to get caught up.   

Best Trash contracts are for normal amounts of residential waste and recycling collection.  Our contracts do not include debris removal as a result of a natural disaster.  FEMA has declared the winter storm we just experienced a natural disaster.  Therefore, the debris generated due to this disaster is not covered under the terms of the contracts.  This would include debris removal from inside of the house as a result of flooding from broken pipes.  Additionally, any landscaping removed as a result of the freeze and any landscape demolition debris would also be excluded.  Past disasters including hurricanes and flood debris removal has been covered by FEMA.  A few options to dispose of debris is mentioned below.

  1.  Please check with Waste Management to see if you are serviced by their Bagster service areas.  Please go here for more information on the Bagster.
  2. Please check with the Bull Bag to see if you are in an area that they service. Please click here for more information.
  3.  Best Trash does have the ability to provide a special collection service for debris removal.  For pricing, please email your address and several clear pictures of your pile to customerservice@besttrashtexas.com to get a quote.

Please click here for more information regarding heavy trash guidelines but please be aware that limitations are being set at this time.

Please always have your items out prior to 7am!

We apologize for any inconvenience, but safety is our number one concern and we hope that everyone is safe during this time.  We thank you for your patience and continued trust.

Please make sure that all trash is not blocked by any vehicles.

Is your container missing after the recent storms?

Please check with neighbors to see if they may have your can for safekeeping.  Please check the end of the street for a container that has not been claimed.  The numbers are not assigned to any particular resident.  If you still need a replacement, please contact our office at 281-313-2378 to schedule the payment of $65+tax for the replacement container fee.

Recycleable Items

PAPER (including cardboard), PLASTICS (1-7 Styrofoam), 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 bin for recyclable materials. The red recycle bin 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 cart for collection.

Non-Recycleable Items

Plastic bags, pizza boxes, hangers, toys or any other items that do not have the official recycle logo on them.

Cart Care and Maintenance

Please place the carts neatly against the curb along with your trash cart. Best Trash will provide each residence with ONE recycling cart. Best Trash will replace any carts that are defective or otherwise become unusable due to normal wear and tear. Lost or stolen recycle carts can be replaced for $65.00 + tax each by calling Best Trash.
