COVID-19 “Coronavirus” Update – Please Bag Your Trash!

TRASH: MONDAYS & THURSDAYS

In response to the continuing effects of the Coronavirus and in observance of our employee’s safety, we are asking that all waste be placed in plastic bags and tied off to avoid any direct contact with the garbage.

RECYCLING: THURSDAYS

Please continue to place your recycling loose in your container. However, if anyone in your household is exhibiting symptoms of any transmissible illness, please place recyclables in plastic bags and dispose with your regular garbage.

Trash and Recycle Services will continue as normal, but we are experiencing an increase in the amount of residential solid waste as a result of residents spending more time at home. Please be patient as we are doing our best to get everyone’s waste collected.

Green waste collection will continue; however, we anticipate delays in service. By taking the following steps, residents can help minimize these delays:

  • Mulch leaves and grass clippings instead of bagging them for disposal
  • Limit the amount of pruning and tree trimming to only what is essential
  • If utilizing a landscaping company, ensure all green waste is collected and hauled off by the contractor.

Breaking HCMUD 367 Recycling Myths

The recycling information contained herein pertains only to the residents of Harris County Municipal Utility District No. 367. Every recycling plant has its own guidelines. Residents of other MUDs are encouraged to contact their waste services providers for recycling guidelines for their neighborhood.

MYTH: HCMUD 367 recycling is not actually recycled; it’s thrown into a landfill.
FACT: HCMUD 367 recycles residents’ recyclable waste at Independent Texas Recyclers (ITR). The recycling facility is located on 20 acres of land at 6810 Irvington Boulevard in Houston.

MYTH: Garden hoses are recyclable.
FACT: Garden hoses tie up the recycling machines and therefore are NOT recyclable by ITR.

MYTH: Grocery store plastic bags, produce plastic bags and trash liner bags are recyclable.
FACT: These plastic bags are NOT recyclable by ITR as they clog the machines during the process. However; local retailers, such as the Walmart at FM 249 & Spring Cypress Road, collect thin plastic bags such as this for recycling.

MYTH: Pizza boxes need to be cleaned out before recycling.
FACT: Pizza boxes can be recycled without being cleaned; however, removing food may help avoid attracting pests to recycling cans.

MYTH: Dishwashing and laundry detergent containers need to be thoroughly cleaned before recycling.
FACT: This is not necessary for recycling; the process will naturally clean out the container. HCMUD 367 encourages residents to avoid excessive rinsing in order to conserve water.
